Jeter ends slump, Yankees sweep A's. (Yahoo!)

Alex Belth: "It was great to see the Yankees loose and smiling again. Funny what winning does to a team. As removed as modern athletes often feel from us in interviews, we are still invited to observe the intimacy and spirit of the dugout, when men light up like boys. Last night, the Yanks had a good reason to feel good about themselves. Really, how often do you go up against Hudson-Mulder-Zito and come away with a sweep? Not often, that's for sure." (Bronx Banter)

ChiSox's Loaiza continues April surge. "A 21-game winner last season and runnerup for the Cy Young, Loaiza (4-0) ran his career record in April to 18-3. The remarkable stretch includes 10 straight victories in that month dating back to 2001 when he pitched for Toronto." (Yahoo!)
