Indians 5, Yankees 3
Sure, it was bound to happen sometime, but I never expected David Dellucci to be the guy to shit on Joba Chamberlain's cloak of invincibility. The Yankees lost a tough one last night, 5-3 to the Indians, after Dellucci (a Yankee for all of 21 games in 2003) cranked a pinch-hit three run homer off Joba in the 8th, wasting a damn good start from Mr. Pettitte and actual offensive contributions from Giambi and Cano.
A few Joba-related notes:
- It was only the second home run allowed in 37 career innings by Chamberlain
- Dellucci's bomb were the first regular-season runs Chamberlain has allowed at Yankee Stadium
- NY is now 15-1 when leading after seven innings this season
