Yankees make it a home run Halladay

Despite all the rough history, the Yankees made the usually dominant Roy Halladay look like a starter for the Diamondbacks. Home runs from Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira doubled Halladay’s season total and propelled the Yankees to an 8-3 victory.

Best of All: CC Sabathia battled through seven tough innings against a patient and persistent Phillies lineup. He put his team in position to win and, with some seventh-inning insurance runs courtesy of Francisco Cervelli, the unpressured bullpen sealed the deal with ease.

Worst of All: Robinson Cano only had one hit in five at-bats. Despicable, ain’t it? Good baseball from the Yankees today, except when Sabathia forgot to cover first on a grounder hit to the right side in the fourth inning.

Coming Up: Game 2 will be in front of a national audience, ESPN-aired, featuring Kyle Kendrick and A.J. Burnett.
