Listen, I get just as sick about writing about the Yankees as you do reading about them, but the lead story is the lead story: the Bronx Bombers, a week ago left for dead, have won six straight and are now one game under .500.  One day after Roger Clemens earned a win in his re-debut, the Yanks completed their weekend sweep of the Pirates with a 13-6 win.  Alex Rodriguez led the charge with two home runs (nos. 23 and 24), and Bobby Abreu went 4-for-4 with 3 RBI.

The victory puts the Yankees in sole possession of second place in the AL East, a mere 9.5 games back of the Red Sox, who lost 5-1 to Arizona yesterday.  Randy Johnson (6 IP, 1 R, 9 K) outpitched Daisuke Matsuzaka (6 IP, 2 R, 9 K), but I think Dice-K's solid outing plus the fact that it's Monday morning gives us the right to look at Yoko Matsugane.  Anyone disagree?  All right then.

Other MLB scores: Pujols goes yard twice as Cards beat Angels 9-6… Somebody score already! Alex Gonzalez singled home the only run of the game in the bottom of the 12th inning to give the Reds a 1-0 victory over the Indians. C.C. Sabathia and Aaron Harang combined for 16 innings, 6 hits, 16 strikeouts, and no earned runs, and all they get to show for it is a no-decision and a sore shoulder. HAW-ha!… In the Battle of Cities Formerly Home to the Athletics, the Royals manhandled the Phillies 17-5. Mark Grudzielanek had a home run and 5 RBI.  Seriously, Mark Grudzielanek.  That's just sad.
