Top stories from last week:
- The week started off with a doubleheader against the nosediving Rays, and the Yanks took care of business on Monday – CC Sabathia set the tone in the afternoon game, and the offense did it’s thing against Andy Sonnanstine in the night cap. Nick Swisher kept it going with two homers, including a walk-off job, the next day. Jeter tied Lou Gehrig for the most hits in franchise history in the finale, and a pinch-hit Jorge Posada homer gave the team the four-game sweep.
- Derek Jeter became the franchise’s all-time leader in hits against the Orioles on Friday night, but the bullpen ruined the moment. One bad inning did the Yanks in on Saturday, but they pounded the O’s bullpen to avoid the sweep.
- In a surprise move, Ian Kennedy was activated from the minor league disabled list and threw two scoreless innings for High-A Tampa.
- David Robertson had some elbow trouble and saw Dr. Andrews, but he’ll miss just two weeks.
