Listen to the highlights

Mike Mussina pitched 7 2/3 strong innings, surrendering six hits and two runs, as the Yankees beat the Diamondbacks, 7-2, on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium.The 38-year-old right-hander struck out seven and didn't walk a batter, lowering his ERA to 5.17 on the season.
Livan Hernandez (5-4) gave up seven earned runs on nine hits in four innings, taking the loss after he surrendered five walks and struck out just one in a 93-pitch effort.

Arizona designated hitter Conor Jackson homered with two outs in the sixth inning, bringing the score to 7-2.

In the third, Bobby Abreu extended his season-high hitting streak to 12 games with a two-out single off Hernandez. After Abreu swiped second, Alex Rodriguez singled him home through the hole on the left side. It was Abreu's 1,000th run scored in his career.

In the fourth inning, Jorge Posada walked to bring Hideki Matsui to the plate with two on and two outs, and Matsui belted a three-run homer into the right-field stands.

In the third, with Abreu on board and one out, Rodriguez came to the plate and crushed the first pitch he saw into the second deck in left field for his Major League-leading 25th homer of the season, giving the Yankees a 3-1 lead that they did not relinquish.

Posada tied the game at 1 on Hernandez's first pitch of the second inning, launching a home run into right field. With the homer -- Posada's eighth this season and 206th of his career -- the 35-year-old catcher passed Dave Winfield for soul possession of ninth place on the Yankees' all-time homer list.

Arizona third baseman Mark Reynolds led off the second inning with a double over Matsui's head. Reynolds scooted to third on a ground-ball out, and then scored on center fielder Chris Young's sacrifice fly, giving the Diamondbacks a brief 1-0 advantage.
