One for the thumb

Solid victory tonight by the Yankees. They hit for power (three home runs) and pitched for power (14 strikeouts) en route to an 8-0 rout of the San Diego Padres. The Yankees have now won five games in a row and are a season-high five games over .500.

Andy Pettitte turned in his second straight solid start, pitching seven shutout innings while striking out nine. He has now given up one earned run over his last 15 innings.

Jason Giambi hit two home runs to add to his team-high total. He now has 17 on the season after hitting 14 all of last year. Alex Rodriguez homered in his third straight game and has been hot the last couple of weeks.

They'll do it again tomorrow night, as reigning Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy will face Darrell Rasner.

It's a pity we can't have Maddux vs Mussina.
