Jason Giambi homered for the second consecutive game, helping the Yankees' night proceed exactly as planned with a crisp 4-2 victory over the Orioles.
For the second consecutive night, Giambi pounded a ball over the right-field wall and onto Eutaw St., slugging a fourth-inning home run off of Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie -- the 42nd ball hit into that area of the ballpark.
Giambi, who leads the Yankees with 11 home runs, also picked up an RBI in the second inning with a single, driving in Hideki Matsui.
Well. I may have been wrong about Jason Giambi. But we will see. Hopefully he can bump the average up a bit while maintaining the power that he has shown. I am crossing my fingers that he can stay healthy and productive.
