Bruised Bum Boy Baffles Batters

Despite running off three hours sleep, I managed to stay up and witness the first win from Carl Pavano (1-0) since May 22, 2005. The Yankees righty gave up six hits over seven innings giving up a pair, in what was an excellent display.

The Yankees spotted Pavano an early lead, 3-0 before he stood on the mound and 5-0 before he returned for the second inning. Bobby Abreu had 4 RBIs and a HR, JoPo hit a two-run double that was misplayed in LF by Jason Kubel and A-Rod hit another shot to RF to make him the first Yankee ever to hit 5 HR in the first six games of a season.

Last night though in the dome showed for the first time this season what this club is capable of. Nice Defense all around the IF, solid pitching with the starter going deep and keeping the hitters off balance mixed in with jumping on the starter early.

In might just be one game but it is the first time this season we've not looked sloppy in any facit of the game - long may it continue!
