• Yankees 4 Tampa Bay 2: The Yankees swept the Rays in an eventful game in the Bronx. Things started with Joba Chamberlain struggling again in the first inning by giving up two runs, but Joba pitched a lot better after it appeared that Derek Jeter have him a bit of a pep talk. Jeter laid down a bunt to leadoff the game and beat it out for a hit. He had two more hits, tying him with Lou Gehrig, but the Yankees still trailed 2-0 in the eighth. But, A-Rod and Matsui got hits, Tampa made a huge error and Jorge Posada cleared the bases with a three-run pinch-hit blast. The Yankees chose to give Mariano the night off and the combination of Bruney and Coke finished things off in the ninth.
