Morning Bits

Good morning everyone!

The Yankees completed a sweep of the Twins yesterday by a score of 9-5.

Ichiro Suzuki, Vernon Wells, Zoilo Almonte, Luis Cruz and Travis Hafner lead the way offensively for the Yankees.

David Phelps was sharp until the 7th inning when the Twins managed to cut their deficit from eight runs to four runs with four of those runs charged to Phelps and the other to Boone Logan.

The Yankees will play the Orioles in the Bronx tonight as they start a ten-game home stand that leads into the All-Star break. The next time the Yankees play a road game will be two weeks from today in Boston.
