Yankees-Blue Jays: The live blog
Welcome to wind-swept Knology Park, just down the road from the gun shop and across the street from the VFW.
Itíll be Phil Franchise against Jesse Litsch.
The wind is blowing straight in here. Youíd need a bazooka to get it over the fence. Excellent news for Kei Igawa, who will get a few innings after Phil Hughes.
The Yankees didnít do much in the first inning. Johnny Damon grounded out and Derek Jeter struck out swinging before Bobby Abreu reached on an infield single. Alex Rodriguez then walked. Jason Giambi cracked one down the line at first but Lyle Overbay made a nice play on the ball and flipped to Jesse Litsch.
David Eckstein led off the Blue Jays and grounded up the middle. ďI have no range, itís been proven by Ivy Leaguers, you get it,Ē Jeter yelled. Bernie Castro picked it up and made a nice throw to the Big G.
Scott Rolen flew to right. Itís all Tony La Russaís fault. Reed Johnson grounded to the Big G. He snapped it up like a cat. 9 pitches/6 strikes for Hughes.
