Make like a banana and split...

August 14, 2006: N.Y. Yankees 7, L.A. Angels 2

Torre shook up the lineup, moving Giambi into the cleanup spot and A-Rod to fifth. He also swapped Cano and Posada.

Posada apparently took that as a challenge, because he broke out of a long slump in a big way, going 3 for 4 with a home run.

Randy Johnson also stepped up in a big way. He went seven innings, which no Yankee starter has done since Wang did it two weeks ago. The bullpen needed that.

Jason Giambi has 999 career runs, and I guess he's getting a bit anxious. He ran through Bowa's stop sign at 3B. Big mistake. The notoriously slow Giambi was thrown out at home plate by about 20 feet. I don't know what he was thinking. Who does he think he is, Bubba Crosby?

But hey, we won. No harm, no foul. And it's nice to get the split, at least. We just don't match up well with the Angels, so I'm not too disappointed.
