Nuthin but a Homer

Four home runs were hit in today's festivities as the Yankees take two of three games in the series. Swisher went for #12 which is half of his 2008 totals. Teixeira's 18th bomb moves him ahead of his Rays counterpart Carlos Pena and Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz for tops in the AL. Only Adrian Gonzalez (also a 1B) has more with 22.
Pettitte was his typical self and earning the win with former starter Phil Hughes putting in a perfect inning of relief work.
Rivera earns save number 14, only one behind Brian Fuentes of the Angels.

Boston was idle today putting the Yankees a full game ahead with a crucial three-game series starting tomorrow. June? Crucial? Yes. The Yankees can handle the other three teams in teh East, but are a dismal 0-5 against the Sox this season. Four more losses and they lose the East if they tie with Boston.
