Orlando Hernandez made his debut in a start for the Yankees, and it did not go well. He had a perfect first inning, but Jim Thome led off the second by mashing a tater. The Naps batted around, and Thome mashed a second tater against Hernandez in the inning, ending Hernandez’s rough day. Thome added a third spud to his pile of mashed taters later in the game to become the third player to 30 home runs. Manny Ramirez and Joe Jackson also had three-hit games for Cleveland. Stan Coveleski hypnotized the New York bats in a complete game gem.
