Andy Pettite continued to struggle, earning his fourteenth loss of the season, giving up four runs in six innings. Bomber offense looked bleak again, with Giambi's 31st homer of the season highlighting an otherwise listless night.

Derek Jeter broke Lou Gehrig's Yankee Stadium hit mark, making him the most prolific hitter at the Ballpark in the Bronx.
