Good morning New York sports fans! Hope everybody had a safe and nice holiday weekend (I know I did). However, lets skip the small talk and get back to work (like everybody else in America today).â†µ
Cleveland 6, Yankees 3: Derek Jeter returned to the lineup Monday night, but the New York Yankees couldn't score enough runs in a loss at Cleveland. Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, while Austin Kearns and Carlos Santana each homered.â†µ
Jeter went hitless (0-for-4) in his first game since June 14. The Captain remains still six hits shy of 3,000.â†µ
Robinson Cano will participate in the Home-Run Derby: The Yankees second basemen accepted David Ortiz's invitation to be in the State Farm Home Run Derby (Monday at 8 p.m.) during All-Star Weekend. Ortiz, who's the American League captain, asked Cano to be a participant after Yankees first basemen Mark Teixeira nicely declined an invite.â†µ
Ortiz, teammate Adrian Gonzalez and Toronto's Jose Bautista will represent the AL in the event.
