Yankees 3, Blue Jays 2

Hughie Jennings, who managed the Detroit Tigers during the Ty Cobb era, was famous for what he would tell his players before each game.

"Keep it close, boys," Jennings would say. "I'll think of something."

One had this feeling during last night's Yankees game, even as the Yanks fell behind early, 2-0. Something was going to click. When it did--when Damon beat out that bunt in the sixth to bring up Derek Jeter, first and second, nobody out, Yankee faithful were on the same page: Ah, got 'em now.

Phil Hughes and Billy Traber joined Joba and Melky as the latest Baby Yanks to impress.

Ian today.
