Behind six shutout innings from Javier Vazquez (thanks, AP, for the photo), the Yankees took the first of six Subway Series games this season with a 2-1 win at Citi Field. Vazquez left after throwing just 70 pitches when he hurt his finger while laying down a bunt, but X-rays have already come back negative. Also encouraging was a strong outing from Joba Chamberlain and a tense-but-effective ninth from Mariano Rivera, ending a week in which the bullpen had been shaky.
The victory snaps a three-game losing streak for the Yankees after they dropped the last game against the Red Sox and both games against the Rays. Check back for more updates from the post-game clubhouse.
