Bobby Abreu homered twice and Mike Mussina received a standing ovation as he walked off the field. The Yankees last night, looked like the team they were supposed to be this season; powerful hitting, strong pitching, and a bullpen ready to shut down the door.

Last night also marked the founders of River Avenue News last game at the stadium. Look for our upcoming series "Last Night in the Stadium" as we give you a full count (and pictures!) of what was a memorable night in the Bronx.
