Ichiro had seven hits including going 4-4 in the second game with 4 stolen bases and a game wining single to lead the bombers to a double header sweep. Jeter who was scratched from the first game played short in the second and looked normal minus one bad throw that he rushed. Beyond Ichiro the Yankees offence wasn’t firing on all cylinders but it didn’t need to because the pitching was fabulous.

Andy Pettitte in his return from the DL went five scoreless innings throwing 75 pitches and David Phelps pitched into the seventh. Soriano picked up a save in both games giving him 42 for the year. Baltimore is just getting going on the west coast If Seattle wins the Yankees will have a 2 game lead with 15 to go. GO MARINERS
