Moose wins 10, Yankees get to three over

Mike Mussina got off to an inauspicious start, to borrow a line from Michael Kay. After the first inning, he was trailing 3-0. This could have been worse if the Astros didn't record another out on the basepaths in the inning.

However, he was able to limit the damage to only that and eventually turned in the definition of a quality start (three runs in six innings). He also struck out four batters.

He is now 10-4 on the season, one year removed from winning 11 games and not recording his 10th win until Sept. 18.

Simply remarkable.

The Yankees have now won three straight and eight of their last 11 to reach their high point of the season thus far (three games above .500 at 36-33).

Other positives: Melky Cabrera, who had one hit in his last 21 at-bats, went 2-2 with three walks and two RBI tonight. Robinson Cano had a pinch-hit RBI single to give the Yankees an insurance run. Kyle Farnsworth pitched a scoreless inning. By the way, he has a 3.11 ERA on the road, compared to a 5.14 ERA at home. Just some food for thought.

Chien-Ming Wang and Roy Oswalt will square off in a Father's Day matinee as the Yankees look for a sweep.
