<a href="" rel=\"attachment wp-att-9353\">Brett Marshall was lights out against New Britain on Sunday. AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees
John Maine turned in his best performance since joining the Yankees organization, tossing six innings of two-run ball on Sunday. Maine allowed just two hits while striking out four as he picked up his third win and lowered his ERA to 6.28. Cory Wade would relieve Maine, providing three innings of shutout pitching as he picked up his second save since being demoted. Hitting with runners in scoring position helped Scranton/Wilkes-Barre significantly yesterday, as they went 3-for-7 and scored twice on hits. Gustavo Molina, behind the plate while Francisco Cervelli got a day off, hit a three-run home run as the major offensive force for the Yankees. AA: Trenton Thunder
Brett Marshall stole the show for the Thunder on Sunday, allowing just two hits through 5.2 shutout innings. One of Trenton’s best pitchers this year, Marshall recorded six strikeouts on the day as he picked up his league-leading 10th win of the season. Only Jon Meloan allowed a run on the day, though he was still able to nail down his third save of the season. Trenton’s offense was led by Addison Maruszak and Neil Medchill, who homered in back-to-back innings to give the Thunder a 3-1 victory. Trenton’s only other run scored when Luke Murton singled in the 4th inning, bringing home David Adams. High-A: Tampa Yankees
Tampa’s game from Sunday was postponed due to unplayable field conditions. Class A: Charleston Riverdogs
The Riverdogs got the bats going in a big way on Sunday, putting together sixteen hits as they defeated Greenville by a score of 11-5. Ben Gamel led the team in hits, going 4-for-5 and scoring three times. However, it was Tyson Blaser and Francisco Arcia who really powered the offense. Each had three RBIs, with Arcia blasting his fourth home run of the season. Dante Bichette and Casey Stevenson also got in on the action, with Bichette recording a multi-hit game, and Stevenson hitting an RBI triple. For Charleston, it was a good thing the bats were working, because Bryan Mitchell struggled throughout today. Mitchell allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks in just four innings of work for the Riverdogs, and didn’t last long enough to get the victory. That went to Philip Wetherell, who picked up his fourth win of the year in relief of Mitchell.

New York Yankees: Mariano vs. Soriano

Mariano vs. Soriano is a topic considered sacrilegious in Yankee Universe that no one wants to brooch but with the recent rumors that Mariano Rivera could return in 2012 it has to be. Rafael Soriano (Photo credit: Wikipedia) First let me be clear in stating my opinion that Rivera is the greatest closer ever to play the game. There is no other like Mo, and there never will be but...

Report: Yankees' Rivera wants to return this season

The New York Yankees are not expecting closer Mariano Rivera to return until next season, but Rivera said he wants to return this year. Rivera, 42, tore his anterior-cruciate ligament on May 3, but did not have surgery until June 12. Rivera is still operating under the assumption that he probably won't be back this season. But the New York Post reported last week that his...

Yankees' backup left fielders keep coming through

Brett Gardner has appeared in just nine games for the Yankees this season, and none since injuring his right (non-throwing) elbow attempting a diving catch on April 17. As general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday, the Yankees barely have missed the speedy outfielder and lineup pest because of the presence of two aging players whose skill sets won't be confused with Gardner...

A-Rod may 'never speak to Reggie Jackson again'

It looks like Reggie Jackson has struck out with Alex Rodriguez over the comments he made about the Yankee third baseman in a Sports Illustrated article last week. A-Rod is still angry over Jackson's remark that Rodriguez's admitted use of steroids should keep him from joining the Yankee legend in the Hall of Fame. A source told the New York Daily News that Rodriguez is...

Darnell McDonald Designated for Assignment by Yankees to Make Room for CC Sabathia on Roster

Darnell McDonald is a Yankee no longer. The former Red Sox outfielder, who was claimed off waivers by the New York Yankees after the Sox let him go, has been designated for assignment once again. As a corresponding roster move, the team activated CC Sabathia off the disabled list. In four games with New York, he went hitless while striking out twice in his four plate appearances...

Read This Once And Forget Everything Else You See Or Hear On The Subject

 Brett Gardner's injury has still not been properly diagnosed. Until it is, and until he exits the Hospital For Special Surgery with a successful operation, he is not playing baseball again.  He does not need more rest.  He needs repair.  I have been saying this since he went away.  And you all know that.  So take a deep breath, have a dozen manhattans, and forget about...

Yankeetorial: The Aqua-Ape search gives us hope for Brett Gardner's elbow

Last night on the Discovery Channel, bearded and bespectacled scientists updated the world on their continuing search for mermaids, or the "aqua-ape." At one point, a bearder subjected deep sea recordings to a super-spectrographic, magnetic-sequencing digital analysis, isolating individual frequencies and slowing them to sound levels conducive to the human...

To replace the shelved Brett Gardner, Brian Cashman and the Yankees must consider pursuing future Hall of Famer Ichiro Suzuki

Curtis Granderson Makes Sick Catch Vs. Angels


Spike Lee ends up with Mark Teixeira’s bat after it flies into stands (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Scary moment at Yankee Stadium on Sunday when Mark Teixeira‘s bat went flying into the stands in the bottom of the first against the Angels. However, fear not, compassionate baseball fans: the lumber managed to avoid hitting anybody. But there to end up with the souvenir: Spike Lee, who appears to be more busy heckling people at New York sporting...

Top Play: Curtis Granderson Robs Mike Trout

Curtis Granderson made the catch of the day by robbing fellow center fielder Mike Trout of extra bases on Sunday. Trout launched a 2-1 pitch deep to center field that appeared to be destined for extra bases, as Granderson was shading the Angels top prospect to right center field. After a long run to track the ball down, Granderson made a stellar catch at the warning track just before...

Ibanez grand slam gives Yankees a victory

NEW YORK -- Toronto Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor had just frozen Nick Swisher on a called third strike with the bases loaded to record the second out of the eighth inning and quiet the Yankee Stadium crowd. Frasor appeared to be in position to escape the jam with the score still tied, but, as opponents have said all season, there is little relief in the New York Yankees lineup...

ROCHESTER, NY - In about two weeks, many Americans will have their eyes set on Michael Phelps as he tries to swim his way to another gold medal. For the New York Yankees, the team is focusing more on another Phelps, David Phelps, as he makes the transition back to a starting pitcher.
