Yankees sweep A’s – bats come alive against Hudson, Mulder and Zito


The Yankee bats… those Yankee bats… they came alive. After getting swept by the Red Sox, the Yankees didn’t seem to be getting any breaks, having to face the dominant threesome from Oakland. Zito, Hudson and Mulder (I actually have Zito and Mulder’s autograph – along with Billy Koch, on the same ball). But, they did it. They got 4 ER out of Hudson in 7 innings, 4 out of Mulder in 6 and 6 out of Zito in 6.

Also of note, Jeter broke out of his (0 for 32) slump tonight by taking the first pitch from Zito into the stands. Bernie also hit his first homer.
