Lyle Overbay sent a knuckleball from R.A. Dickey into the right field bullpen for a go-ahead, two-run homer in the seventh inning that was caught on the fly by Yankees reliever David Robertson, and New York beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 Sunday for a four-game sweep.
Brennan Boesch homered in the second off Dickey (2-4), pitching in New York for the first time since getting his 20th win for the New York Mets last September.
Dickey allowed a single to Overbay later in the second, then retired 13 of his next 14 batters around a walk. Travis Hafner singled leading off the seventh and, with two outs, Overbay hit his third home run of the season - one more than his total last year.

I held out hope until the last minute that Francisco Cervelli's hand injury was only a minor one.I had already seen the tweets announcing that Triple A Scranton catcher Austin Romine had been removed from his game shortly after Cervelli went down, but I kept telling myself that it was only as a precaution until Cervelli's bruise had been confirmed. Of course, it wasn'...
The New York Yankees just cannot seem to stay away from the
disabled list. In addition to the rash of stars already there, the Yankees have

arm. ESPN-New York Yankees' Wallace...

R.A. Dickey had just been rocked by Lyle Overbay's two-run homer as the Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer got ready to throw one of his gimmicky pitches to the next batter. In the New York Yankees bullpen, David Robertson — who had just caught Overbay's dinger — was warming up to preserve the 3-2 Yankees lead.
Out in front of the dugout was that next batter — Eduardo...

The New York Yankees are never short on drama, but this season might take the cake.
Just look at the last 48 hours:
- Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays for the second night in a row, 6-4.
- Organization’s top prospect Mason Williams got a DUI at 3am. Mason passed the blood alcohol test but failed the road test...
Sure he retired last December, but, according to the New York Post, that isn't stopping the New York Yankees from offering Hideki Matsui a contract.
I'll let you make all the Yankees jokes, but, honestly, the team inking the former slugger to a one-day deal so he can ceremoniously "retire" in pinstripes is actually pretty cool.
The two-time All-Star, and...
Kevin Youkilis has joined Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the New York Yankees' disabled list.
The Yankees said Tuesday that Youkilis has a lumbar spine sprain and placed him on the 15-day DL.

The Yankees welcome in the newest members of the American League tonight – the Houston Astros – for a three-game series.

Jeter: Not watching "many games"
Well, Hideki Matsui will be returning to the Yankees.
For one day.
Plans are in the works for the Yankees to sign Matsui to a one-day contract so he can retire as a Yankee, according to George King of the New York Post. Matsui originally announced his retirement from baseball back in December.
Signed prior to the 2003 season, Matsui quickly became a fan favorite. Over his seven years...
Kevin Youkilis is out of the New York Yankees' lineup because of
a bad back, one day after his return from a six-game layoff.
Prior to last night’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays,
New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano told reporters – including Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York – that contract extension discussions haven’t resumed
between the Yankees and his new agents.
Cano recently parted ways with super-agent Scott Boras in
favor of CAA and Jay-Z. It’s generally the practice...
