June, 7, 2010
By Eric Karabell | ESPN Insider
• New York Yankees pitcher Javier Vazquez, still available in nearly 30 percent of ESPN leagues, looks his old self after allowing only a Vernon Wells home run in seven innings Sunday. Vazquez had a nice week, beating the Toronto Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles, giving up five hits and three runs in 14 innings, fanning 16.
• Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow took the loss against Vazquez Sunday, but was certainly effective, striking out eight Yankees in seven strong innings, allowing four hits and one run. Morrow allowed two runs in 14 innings for the week, and he's on pace for more than 200 strikeouts.
