Game 28 | 17-11, 1st : Toronto manager John Gibbons made the right move by yanking starter Mark Buehrle after 5 innings with a 3-1 lead. Buehrle has not logged a win against the New York Yankees since 2004 — when gasoline prices hit a then-record high of $1.74 a gallon in America. ‘Confessions’ by Usher was the top selling album of that year, and Facebook was launched as a limited social networking site only for students of Harvard University.
Old friend Russell Martin came back to haunt us again with a home run, and recent Jays call up Christopher Colabello went 4-4, pacing Toronto to a 5-1 victory at Rogers Centre.
“Every game is a new game. It’s not like every time I’ve gone out there I’ve had my butt handed to me. There have been some games I pitched good against them and it just didn’t work out. I came in today like it was a normal start.” ‐ Mark Buehrle (Hat tip: mlb.com)
