First, the success story of the night: Law enforcement tonight captured the second suspect in connection to Monday’s marathon bombing. If you haven’t heard all about it, go to basically any news website or television station. It’s pretty remarkable.
Here in Toronto, a different sort of victory. The Yankees used 10 extra-base hits and a strong return by Andy Pettitte to pick up a convincing 9-4 win against the Blue Jays. The Yankees hit three home runs, including solo shots by former Jays Lyle Overbay and Vernon Wells. It was the Yankees eighth win in the past 10 games. Travis Hafner also went deep, hitting his fifth home run of the season to kick start a three-run third inning when the Yankees began to pull away. Because of back spasms, Pettitte was making his first start in 10 days and delivered 7.1 innings. He struck out five, walked one and allowed three runs on six hits. He’s lasted at least seven innings and gotten the win in all three of his starts this season.
