Comeback city

Johnny Damon earned his pinstripes (I hate that saying) with his 6-6 afternoon, including the game-winning ground-rule RBI single to go along with his three other RBI.

The Yankees came back from two four-run deficits to take the second game of this four-game series against Kansas City.

Alex Rodriguez and Jason Giambi hit two of the longest home runs I've ever seen hit at Yankee Stadium. It's only a precursor of what is to come in July during the Home Run Derby.

Andy Pettitte was awful and Mariano Rivera stunningly surrendered a home run (only his second earned run allowed this year and first home run allowed), but Damon and the offense were able to pick up the lack of pitching.

Jorge Posada hit his first home run since his return to tie the game in the ninth.

The Yankees had 19 hits, including multi-hit games from everyone except Derek Jeter, Bobby Abreu and Wilson Betemit (Betemit was the only starter to go hitless).

They are back to .500 with the victory. Let's try to get past this for once, shall we?
