Jason Giambi was 2 for 28 before that home run. He kiddingly told us he was ready to hang himself in the shower if he didn’t get a hit. Only The Big G would make a reference to “An Officer and an Gentleman” after hitting a grand slam.
A few other late-night tidbits for you:
The Yankees are now, finally, 35-35 on the road. … They are 60-33 since June 1. … Alex Rodriguez is 18 of 34 this month and is up to .319. … Jorge Posada’s double gave him 300 for his career.
