Offense delivers again

25 runs in two games, huh? Last week, I would've signed up for about seven runs in two games.

The Yankees have now won a season-high four games in a row and now sit at a record of 24-25. They will look to sweet the Mariners for the second time this season tomorrow afternoon.

Hot Yankees:

Hideki Matsui: Matsui has seven hits in his last 12 at-bats, scoring eight runs.

Jason Giambi: Giambi is 8-14 with one home run, two doubles, three RBI and five runs scored. In today's game, he had two hits to left field.

Robinson Cano: Cano is 9-17 with five doubles (three in today's game) and six RBI. In today'g game, he had three hits to left field.

Bobby Abreu had a four-RBI game, including a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

On the other hand, Derek Jeter is hitless in his last 15 at-bats.

Mike Mussina wasn't great this afternoon, as he blew a four-run lead in the third inning. However, the offense continued to support him, and he won his seventh game of the season. Mussina gave up four earned runs and surrendered seven hits and two home runs in five innings. He also struck out four and walked one.

Today was also "Phase Two" of Joba Chamberlain's transition to the rotation, as Michael Kay reminded us time and time again. He threw 40 pitches - only five more than he did on Wednesday - in two innings, striking out two and walking one. He first inning was smooth, but he threw more pitches in his second inning and was unable to come out for a third.

Despite pitching well in the tie game on Thursday, Kyle Farnsworth gave up four hits and two earned runs in his one inning of work. The two runs came on a Richie Sexson home run.
