Alex Rodriguez returned to the New York Yankees lineup Wednesday night, but he wasn't the story. Old man Jamie Moyer, 47, became the oldest pitcher to ever beat the Yankees, hurling eight, two-run innings in a 6-3 victory.
Moyer and his variety of slow, slower and even sloooooower stuff killed the Yankees softly. Give the guy credit -- with the stuff he throws no scout would look at him twice if he was coming out of school now. He has, however, compiled 265 career victories, a testament to the fact that you don't need 95 mph stuff to pitch. See Pinstripe Alley for more Yankee coverage.
The New York Mets continued to beat up on the dregs of the American League Wednesday night, defeating the Cleveland Indians, 6-4.
