Romero mows down Yankees in 8-2 win

Blue Jays southpaw Ricky Romero went the distance in an 8-2 victory to clinch a series win against the Yankees tonight at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees were outhit 12-2.

Best of All: Mark Teixeira hit his team-leading 23rd homer of the year, a two-run blast in the opening frame. It gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead which they held until the fourth, when starter Dustin Moseley allowed three runs.

Worst of All: Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-3 and is hitless in his last 16 ABs and homerless since July 22.

Kerry Wood and Sergio Mitre were both ineffective out of the bullpen. It wasn’t a pretty night at all for the Yankees.

Coming Up: The Yankees will try to avoid getting swept Wednesday afternoon with Phil Hughes on the hill.
