- Another good but not great start from CC Sabathia, who gave up 9 hits and 3 ER in 8 innings. He didn't walk a batter, but struck out only 4. If you're curious, his fastball was sitting low-90s.
- Big day for Travis Hafner, who got a rare DH start against a LHP. He hit a 3-run HR in the bottom of the 4th to tie the game at 3, then after a Brett Lawrie HR in the 6th to give the Jays a 1-run lead, Hafner came back with a 2-out RBI triple to score Vernon Wells and give New York the lead it would not surrender.
- First game back in over a week for Kevin Youkilis, who went 0-3 with a BB, R scored, and a K.
- D-Rob and Mo were unavailable after pitching in consecutive games, so Joba got the ball for the save and he pitched around 2 hits in the 9th to preserve the win and set the Yankees up for the sweep today.
