There weren't many in the Bronx last night, but the people that did attend got to see the Yankees squander a perfect opportunity. They faced a lefty making his first start in the majors and the Red Sox lost to the Orioles. Gustavo Chacin of the Blue Jays is the first lefty to win his major league debut against the Yankees under Joe Torre.

Chacin, 23, led the AL East cellar dwelling Blue Jays to an eventual 6-3 win (box score). He pitched seven full innings before leaving with bases loaded in the 8th inning. Chacin gave up 3 runs, 3 hits, 3 walks, 2 runs and picked up 2 strike outs.

Javier Vazquez pitched 6.2 innings and gave up 4 runs on 9 hits and 4 walks. The Yankees lead over the Red Sox remains at 4.5 games.
