Martinez, or should we call him Bambino-Tino
has hit five home runs in five consecutive games, as the Yanks came back from a horrible performance by Carl Pavano, down five runs and increased their winning streak to five games.
Tony Womack had four stolen bases, and flashed the kind of ability that can help the Bombers win a tight, late inning game with speed. They pounded four home runs,one each by Tino, Sheff, Jeter and Posada-who's bat is finally waking up a little bit.
Gordon even looked good as he pitched an impressive ninth to close out the win.
The Yankees placed reliever Felix Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list because of torn cartilage in his left knee. They purchased the contract of 3B Russ Johnson from Triple-A Columbus. The team recommended Rodriguez have surgery, but he'll get a second opinion Thursday in Vail, Colo.
Happy Birthhday to Yogi Berra, as he'll turn the big 8-0 tomorrow!
