When the Yankees played in Chicago last week, Manager Joe Torre considered giving Alex Rodriguez a day off. Torre guessed that Rodriguez might be worn down mentally by the swirl of stories about his private life, and worn down physically by playing every game this season.
But Rodriguez seems to be rejuvenated, Torre said, and the best rest he could give him was a start at designated hitter Thursday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Yankees, as always, were happy to have him.
Rodriguez had three hits and figured in all three scoring rallies in Andy Pettitteâ€™s 7-1 victory at Yankee Stadium. It extended the Yankeesâ€™ winning streak to nine games on the eve of this weekendâ€™s series with the Mets at Yankee Stadium.
The nine-game winning streak is the longest by any team in the majors this season…
Pettitte pitched great again. It’s Clemens, T-Clip and Wang this weekend against the Mets.
