Frustrating Game For Yanks As They Lose To Jays
“Frustrating game” is the understatement of the year. It was a ridiculous game that had me screaming my lungs out at the TV. The Yankees booted every play! 4 errors and about 30 misplays? Where did my Yankees go? Who are these little leaguers that can’t catch a thing? Why did they have to suck when Mitre was pitching? It all bothered me. The Yankees lost to the Blue Jays 14-8. Ugh.
Pitching Analysis: Sergio Mitre, my love, started for the Yankees yesterday. His line looks ugly: 4 & 1/3 innings, 11 hits, 11 runs, 9 earned, 2 walks and 5 K’s. Those numbers are misleading. The Yankees made so many errors behind Sergio. But they also screwed up easy plays, forcing Mitre to get about 5 outs per inning. Now, I love Sergio Mitre with all my heart and would be his darling baby in a microsecond, but Sergio Mitre is not the world’s greatest pitcher. With him on the mound, the defense should have made every play. They were inexcusably horrible. Poor Sergio. He was so frustrated, and a pitcher knows he is not supposed to show it. But really, they were pathetic behind him. Even though he allowed 9 earned runs, I thought he pitched well. He struckout 5, he induced plenty of ground balls, although thanks to the defense they didn’t translate as outs, and the fly balls that were hit were bloopers that were not caught. I honestly think he pitched well, and I’m not just saying that because I drool over him. His sinker was sinking, his curveball was curving and throwing hitters off balance. And he did not allow a home run. If you did not watch the game and just saw Mitre’s line, you would say he was back to his old stinky self. But if you watched it, you should agree with me that he pitched pretty well yesterday.
I think you were great yesterday, baby. 😉
The Yankee bullpen did not get the job done. Mark Melancon walked in about 70 runs and was just awful. Newcomer Josh Towers hit Randy Ruiz in the face which created a bloody mess. That was scary. Towers was not too good, but he did finish out the game for the Yanks.
Defensive Analysis: This is not an exaggeration: Yesterday’s game was the worst defensively played game I have ever seen in my young life. 4 errors, 700 misplays, it was disgusting. Jerry made an error, Cano made an error, Swisher lost a ball in the sun, Tex totally missed a grounder, Mitre struckout Encarnacion who reached first on the wild pitch, Hairston paused with the ball and got no one out, Melky and Damon collided, bloopers were dropping in in front of everyone, it was gross. Poor Sergio. My poor baby. They were forcing him to throw more pitches, and I am still worried about his little arm, and forced him to get more outs. It was dreadful. Girardi better have some kind of meeting. I hope this is not a product of being so far ahead in the division. Don’t get lazy, boys. Play like you are behind. Catch the damn ball!!!
Offensive Analysis: If the fielders actually caught the balls, the Yankees offense would have been enough. They scored 8 runs on 13 hits. Jeter got 3 more hits, Melky had a 3-run homer after colliding with Johnny in the outfield, which sent me into hysterics. I was worried about them. But they were okay, as Melky showed with his homer. The Yankees were hitting, they just lost for other reasons, ahem,,,catch the ball, ahem…They didn’t look dead at the plate like they do in many of their loses.
Jeter inches toward history in every at-bat.
|Pena, R, SS-2B||1||0||0||0||0||1||0||.276|

The only bright spots about the game for me were that, well first of all I got to stare open-mouthed at Sergio Mitre, which is a treat I will take any day. Melky had a 3-run homer after colliding with Damon, so he is okay. And I actually got to see my Cervelli again!!! He caught at the end of the game. Boy, did I miss him. Everything about him is cute. I was glad to see him play. Hopefully he will catch at least 1 game in the doubleheader today. I will be very upset if he doesn’t. The Smelly Sox won yesterday, so our lead is back to 7.5 games. But hopefully we can increase that lead today. I guess they all just had a bad day on the field. It happens, but to the Yankees? No. But yes. They are just human. We have just been spoiled with perfectly played games all year long. I guess they can mess up once in awhile. ONCE IN AWHILE, boys, that was the “once” and the rest of the season is the “awhile.” So be perfect for the rest of the year, okay? Hahaha. I still love you guys. Especially you, Sergio. love you. 😉 GO YANKEES!!!
**Note** I was so caught up in my frustration over the game that I forgot something: I would just like to thank everyone for making me #11 on the Latest Leader’s list. I can’t believe I was even on it, not to mention that high up on my first time. It really is quite an honor and I thank all of you from the bottom of my hearts for coming by and reading and sharing your thoughts. It really means a lot to me. My parents were so proud of me when I told them. Thank you all so much. I love you guys 🙂
Yankees Play Well And Win Game 3
It was just another win for the Yankees yesterday. The offense was good, the starter did well, and the bullpen was great. It seems like this is how it always is, aside from a few random losses like in game 2. It was a good game yesterday. The Yankees beat the Blue Jays 6-4.
Pitching Analysis: Andy Pettitte was the starter for the Yankees yesterday. He was pretty good, but not nearly as good as in his flirt with perfection in his last start. Andy went 6 innings and allowed 4 runs on just 4 hits. He issued 5 walks, a bit much, and he struckout 3 along the way. It was a nice outing for Andy as he picked up his 13th win of the year. I hope he decides to come back next year.
To leadoff the 2nd inning, Randy Ruiz hit a solo homer. I was pissed. It looked so foul. The umpires used the instant replay on it. It ws clearly foul in my eyes, but I always give the Yankees the benefit in the call. To my surprise, the umpires ruled the ball a foul ball, which really bothered Ruiz. He grounded out in that at-bat, but he hit his solo homer later in the game.
The bullpen did a fantastic job yesterday. Robertson, Bruney, and Hughes combined for 3 scoreless innings. Robertson and Bruney picked up holds, and Hughes got his 3rd save. Bravo boys!
Defensive Analysis: The defense was sloppy in some places yesterday, but it made enough of the plays for the win. In the 5th with runners on 1st and 2nd, a comebacker was hit to Andy, who looked toward 2nd to throw the ball. But neither Jeter nor Cano were covering the bag. Everyone was safe. Luckily, Andy got out of the inning unscathed. In the 6th with a man aboard, Bautista hit a ball deep to center that was a tough play for Melky. Melky couldn’t make the play. Hairston fired the ball to Jeter, who tried to get Bautista out at 3rd. But Jeter made a wild throw and Andy didn’t back it up, and Bautista scored! An inside the park 2-run homer? No. It was a triple, RBI, and an E6. Whatever it was, it was sloppy.
Offensive Analysis: The Yankees made up for getting shutout by jumping out to an early lead in the 2nd. My man Melky got himself an RBI single to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead. In the 4th, Robinson Cano led off the inning with a homer. 2-0 Yankees. With 1 out, Melky came up. He was hit by the pitch in his cute little butt (again) and he screamed before the ball even hit him. Oh, Melky. Cano and many others in the dugout where laughing at Leche. Why do they always laugh when Melky gets hurt? Is it THAT funny? Well, Melky seemed alright, so I guess it was. Just another Melky moment.
After the Jays tied up the game in the 4th, Mark Teixeira led off the inning with a home run. They were too busy showing a replay from the previous inning and when they went back to the game, Tex was rounding the bases. Go Tex! 3-2 Yankees. In the 6th, Alex Rodriguez came through with another clutch RBI single up the middle. I like this Arod. He is not trying to hit homers and be the big star anymore. I always said that sometimes all you need is a single, and now Arod sees that. Good for him. Posada added an RBI single of his own in that inning, making it 5-2 Yankees. Melky tacked on another one with another RBI single in the 9th.
It was a good game to watch yesterday. There was a little bit of everything. Homers, singles, interesting plays, instant replay, good pitching, it was just a good game. Better because we won. The heroes are Melky Cabrera, for again provideing comic relief for the club and for his 2 RBIs, Robinson Cano for going 3-4 with a homer, and the bullpen for holding the lead. The Smelly Sox who cheat at Fenway were not at Fenway yesterday and they lost! So the Yankees now have an 8.5 game lead!!! There are only a few weeks left, and we have a huge lead! Don’t get me wrong. A lot can happen, it is possible. But hey. It isn’t probable. Sexy mu..mum..mu Mitre pitches today. I hope he does well. GO YANKEES!!!!!
Yanks Sweep O’s And I Returned To School
I blogged about the first game of the series, which was a great game despite it not being a perfecto. And these last 2 were just as good. On Tuesday, the Yankees won 9-6. Last night they won 10-2. They swept the Orioles! Yay!
Pitching Analysis: A.J. Burnett started for the Yanks on Tuesday night, and he was not too sharp. The offense kept giving him a lead, and he kept blowing it. I thought it was because Jorge was catching him, and those two cranky fellas can’t get along, but Girardi said that was not the case. A.J. was just missing hs spots. His curveball didn’t give me that feeling of satisfaction. It was a lame curve and was being hit hard. But he managed to grind out 6 innings. Damaso Marte did a nice job on Tuesday. I am slowly building confidence in him. Robertson and Coke also pitched. 6 runs were allowed, but the offense picked up the pitchers. We won, so it couldn’t have been too bad.
Last night was CC’s turn, and every start he pitches I only love him more. I always say it, and I am going to say it again: CC Sabathia was worth EVERY PENNY. He is AMAZINGLY GOOD. I love him. He went 7 innings of 1 run, 9 strikeout ball. And he reached the 200 inning mark on the year. Congrats CC!!! Brian Bruney pitched a third of the 8th and allowed a solo homer to rookie Nolan Reimold. The “Philthies” both were scoreless to finish out the win.
CC is the first to 16 wins! Yeah! Love ya, CC!!
Defensive Analysis: I don’t remember anything special about Tuesday, so let’s look at last night. In the 7th, Robinson Cano (Gold Glover!!!) made a spectacular play to end the inning on a double play ball. The way he flips his wrist and the ball just flies to first base; it’s just amazing! He is so talented. If he doesn’t win the Gold Glove award, then no one should.
Offensive Analysis: In both games, the Yankees were swinging the bats well. On Tuesday, Jorge Posada had 2 homers, a solo and a 2-run. Maybe that’s why Girardi played him that night! In the 7th, Swishalicious hit a 2-run BOMB, and Eric Hinske went back-to-back with Swish with a solo shot of his own.
Last night was another offensive explosion for the Bombers. There were 10 runs on 17 hits! One thing both of these games had in common was that they consisted of a big inning. Tuesday it was the 7th where 3 runs were scored. Last night, it was a huge inning. 7 runs in the top of the 9th. I kind of felt bad for the Orioles. No one they put in was effective. But I loved watching Yankee after Yankee produce with the bat. That was fun. Here are the hitting stats from last night’s game, courtesy of Yankees.com:
|Hughes, P, P||0||0||0||0||0||0||0||.000|
|Rodriguez, A, 3B||5||1||3||4||0||1||2||.274|
|Matsui, H, DH||5||0||1||1||0||0||2||.264|
|1-Pena, R, PR-DH-SS||0||1||0||0||0||0||0||.277|

|Molina, J, C||4||1||1||1||1||0||3||.232|
The Yankees are playing great baseball. The first thing my gym teacher said to me this year was, “How ’bout those Yankees.” I was like, “Yeah, I know.” Last year at this time they were out of it, and this year they are leading the way. I absolutely LOVE every man on this team, some more than others as I am sure you know, hahaha. This team is special and I think they have a fabulous shot at going all the way. The heroes for Tuesday are Posada, for his homers, and Swishyboo and Hinske for going back-to-back. I love when that happens. Last night’s heroes are CC Sabathia, for another wonderful effort from the rubber, and Arod, for coming through in the clutch and picking up his 2500th career hit. Congrats, hottie!!! (Mitre is still hotter!!!) The Smelly Sox who cheat at Fenway are now 7.5 games behind my boys. They are on the road now, so they might lose a few games. Then we can get an even bigger lead. I love it!!!
Kind of random, but on Tuesday when I saw my darling love Francisco Cervelli in the dugout again, I screamed. If my brothers weren’t there, I think I would have ran up to the TV and kissed him through the screen. Yeah, I love him that much. Also, school was kind of gross. The AP classes are scaring me, but whatever, I’ll be fine. I don’t think I’m going to care much about school this year. I mean, I’ll try my best with the work, but I don’t really care much about anything else. I’m there to learn, so I can come home and blog it up with all of you.
Although he looks good in everything, I hope I never see my baby in a minor league uniform again. I want him to be a Yankee forever!
Mitre Excellent As Yanks Blowout ChiSox
OMG yesterday was amazing. Everyone knows that I love Sergio Mitre with a passion, and when he did so well yesterday, it made my day. Oh, and the Yankees hit well, too. The Yankees beat the White Sox 10-0.
Pitching Analysis: Sergio Mitre started for the Yanks, and many people probably thought he would do his same old thing. Except me. I always believe in him. He is so sexy that he can do no wrong. The Yanks were the Drama Club pitching wise yesterday for the first 4 innings. Mitre was perfect through 4 and 1/3. PERFECT. Like, no hits no walks just outs. Mitre. Perfect. He’s always perfect in my eyes, but now everyone else got to see it. Thome broke up the perfecto with a double. Darn. I was so mad when he did that. After that hit, the crowd gave Mitre a huge hand. Rightfully so.
That’a boy, sexy.
In the 7th, after a leadoff walk to Lillibridge, AJ Pierzinski came up. I hate him. But after his at-bat I hated him more. He hit a line drive comebacker right at Sergio. It hit off his forearm, and I screamed. But he was so cute. He touched his arm and then ran for the ball. He threw out AJ. Then Girardi and the trainer came out to see if my baby was ok. Like a real man, he wanted to stay in the game. Oh! My heart! So macho, so tough. I love him. But Girardi didn’t want to take any chances. He pulled Mitre, who as he jogged back into the dugout, got a standing ovation. I was soo close to just bawling all over the floor. I was sad that he got hurt and had that bad break, but I was so touched that the fans gave him a standing ovation. Mitre belongs now. To everyone, not just to me. His arm swelled up immediately, and some skin was broken. The poor baby! It looked so painful. But don’t worry, Sergio my love, I’ll make it better. Let me kiss it for you. I want to kiss your boo-boo. Just don’t tell your wife. 🙂
Oh! You poor baby! Let me kiss it!
Chad Gaudin took forever to warm up, but once he started pitching, we was great. 2 & 2/3 innings of no-hit ball. Nice.
Defensive Analysis: The defense was great yesterday. Arod made an amazing play to keep the perfecto alive. In the 4th. he made a diving play on a sharp grounder and fired to first for the out. Sadly, the no-no was broken up in the next at-bat. But Arod did his part. Cano also made a great play in the 6th. He scooped up a fast grounder, having to practically run into left field, and easily threw across his body to Tex for the out. Nicely done, Robbie.
Offensive Analysis: The offense was on fire yesterday. All of their runs but 1 were base hits. Just 1 was a homer, thanks to Arod. Everyone have a nice day at the plate, except for Tex, but he scored a run. Jerry Hairston, who I am starting to really love, came through with a clutch double to give the Yankees the lead they never relinquished.
|a-Struck out for Matsui, H in the 8th.|
2B: Cano (37, Contreras), Hairston, J (21, Contreras), Damon (30, Contreras), Matsui, H (21, Contreras).
HR: Rodriguez, A (23, 8th inning off Pena, To, 0 on, 0 out).
TB: Jeter 3; Damon 2; Rodriguez, A 5; Matsui, H 3; Swisher 2; Cano 4; Hairston, J 2.
RBI: Hairston, J 2 (36), Damon 2 (71), Rodriguez, A 2 (70), Matsui, H (72), Swisher (68), Cano 2 (70).
2-out RBI: Cano.
Runners left in scoring position, 2 out: Matsui, H; Rodriguez, A; Molina, J; Hairston, J.
Team RISP: 6-for-17.
Team LOB: 9.
Those stats are courtesy of Yankees.com. There was too much offense to tell, although I had it all written down. It was a great game all around for the Bombers. The heroes are Sergio Mitre, for making my heart almost jump through my skin, Chad Gaudin, for filling in nicely for my man, and the Yankee lineup, for exploding with offense. Once again, the smelly sox who cheat at Fenway won again. But whatever. I am happy today. My Yanks have a 6 game lead, and Sergio Mitre had an amazingly good start. He really moved me yesterday. I hope he can make his next start, and for the first time I am not the only one who wishes that! Mitre, baby, seriously, if your arm still hurts, let me kiss it for you and make it better. I would be more than willing to do that. FEEL BETTER, SEXY!!! GO YANKEES!!!
Jorge was pleased. Mitre from the back view….I like it.
I have a quick little lookalike involving 2 baseball players. Take a look.
Close, But No
No victory pie last night. They tried to be The Drama Club. I thought they were going to do it. Ah, well, at least they lost to the Rangers. I still want to win, though. Whatever. The Yankees lost to the Rangers 10-9.
Save it for some other time, A.J.
Pitching Analysis: Joba Chamberlain pitched again on wacky rest, and I think it is because of that that he stunk. Joba only went 4 innings, threw 96 pitches, and gave up 7 runs in 9 hits. It was gross. The Yankees had a 4-0 lead. Then Joba made it 4-2 thanks to an Andrus double. The 4th inning was utterly disgusting. With 2 out, Pudge walked, and that started it. Joba could NOT get the final out. 4-3. 4-4. Before I knew it, it was 7-4 Rangers. Not at all a good performance by Joba.
He looks pissed, and he should be.
Chad Gaudin pitched 3 & 2/3 innings, allowing 3 runs. Damaso Marte was the only good one. (I can’t believe I am saying that!) He went an inning and a third of scoreless ball. Obviously, the pitching (or lack of) was the reason the Yanks lost last night.
Defensive Analysis: The defense was pretty good last night. In the 1st, Joba was in one of his many jams. 1st and 3rd with 1 out. But he got Byrd to ground into an inning-ending 6-4-3 double play, which was turned beautifully by Cano. Nick Swisher made another great play in right. In the 3rd, Michael Young hit a sharp liner to right, which Swish caught backhanded while sliding. Yeah, Swish!
Offensive Analysis: The Yankees jumped out with 4 runs in the 1st. It was all done with 2 outs. A 2 out walk for Tex, followed by an Arod single. Matsui’s double scored them both. Jorge hit a 2-run homer. If anyone else was on the mound, I think we would’ve won that game. (Well, maybe not Mitre..OH! I’m sorry, sexy! jk,jk…) The Yanks tacked on one in the 5th via a solo homer by Cano to shorten the defecit to 8-5.
The 9th is where it got interesting. I had the TV on, but I wasn’t watching. I was talkng to fellow blogger EJ on Facebook. The Yankees got the bases loaded with no one out, and scored a bunch of runs. I thought I smelled a walkoff. My man Melky came up with the score 10-9, and 1st and 2nd with just 1 out. I was so nervous for him. He hit a ball right on the screws, and I started to say, “YES!!!” But before I could finish saying it, I saw that Andrus somehow caught it, and he stepped on 2nd to complete the game-ending double play. You should’ve heard me. Not the kind of stuff a lady should say 🙂 But on the replay, I don’t remember who, but that Yankee was safe sliding back to second. Poor Melky. He couldn’t have hit the ball any harder. A 10-9 loss.
It was a tough, tough loss last night. But if the Yankees HAVE to lose, I’m glad it’s to the Rangers so the Smelly Sox who cheat at Fenway don’t gain any ground. The Yanks now have a 6 game lead over those Sox. Not bad, but I’m insatiable when it comes to a division lead. I always want more. I just have that feeling that the Yankees are going to win tonight. I sure hope I am right. MAKE ME RIGHT, YANKS!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
I’m sure we’ll see it again.
And They Brought The “Big Fly” With Them
Now that was more like it! Those were the Yankees I wanted to see. They smashed 5 homers off Beckett. And now CC leads the league in wins with 15. And the Yankees won the series in Fenway. My Grandma and I watched the game together. Ahhh. We can breathe again. She is a big fan, and she gets angry when they play badly, so we were both happy yesterday. The Yankees beat the smelly sox last night 8-4.
Pitching Analysis: CC Sabathia, our expensive ace, pitched for us last night. Once again, he earned his money and did a great job. CC went 6 & 2/3 innings and allowed 4 runs, 3 of which were earned, on 8 hits, 0 walks, and 8 strikeouts. I love CC.
Hear that, CC? I love you 🙂
In the 2nd with 2 outs, the Red Sox started hitting. They were obviously cheating like they always do in Fenway. Lowell doubled, Baldelli singled, and Varitek doubled. Now it was 2-2.
CC gave up an unearned run in the 4th due to Cano’s stupidity. In the 6th, Pukilis led off with a double, and he wound up scoring on a sac fly by Baldelli. They really didn’t hit CC too hard.
Phil Hughes pitched a scorless inning and a third, and Mo pitched a scorless 9th. The Yanks were great on the mound yesterday.
Defensive Analysis: It was a bit sloppy. I don’t know what happened to Cano yesterday. He was awful in the field. In the 1st inning, he stumbled over an easy grounder by Ellsbury, allowing him to reach 1st. But that was quickly erased after he was picked off. Then in the 4th, a pop up was hit to shallow right. Cano got under it, but it was a bit behind him, and he completely missed it! That scored a run! In the 6th, a ball was hit to shallow left that Jeter and Damon couldn’t get. Damon dived and missed. That led to a run later in the inning. In the 8th, Swish made a nice sliding catch on a liner by Lowell.
Offensive Analysis: The Bombers had their big bats swingin’ last night. 5 homers off Beckett. Quite an accomplishment. On the first pitch of the game, Jeter hit a homer to right. 1 pitch, 1-0 Yankees. In the 2nd on the first pitch, Hideki Matsui hit a homer. 2-0. Haha Beckett. You suck. In the 3rd, Jeter got a single with 1 out. Johnny had a long at-bat, and got himself a single. Tex knocked in Jeter and found himself on 2nd base. Arod got an RBI groundout. 4-2!
In the 4th, Robinson Cano hit a solo home run. That made up for his errors. 5-2 Yanks. In the 5th as I talked to my aunt on the phone, I heard my family cheer from the living room. It was Arod. He hit a 2-run homer with 2 out and 2 strikes. But what was even more amazing was that my Mom actually cheered for him. She actually gave him the credit he deserved for once. I couldn’t believe it. Thanks to Arod, the Yanks had a 7-3 lead. Good job sexy. (Mitre is still hotter!)
In the 8th, Matsui came up. He hit a solo shot around the foul poll in right. I love how the ESPN announcers gave Hideki no credit. They said he didn’t have a good swing at the ball and that he didn’t square it up. Does it matter? He hit a home run! Jeez! Everyone on that channel needs their head examined. They are all retards.
It was a fun game to watch. I was proud of my Yankees for hitting Beckett hard. The heroes are CC Sabathia, for his solid start, and the Bronx Bombers, especially Matsui for going deep twice. The Yankees now have a 7.5 game lead over the smelly Sox. Who would’ve predicted this earlier in the year? Not many. God, do I love my Yankees! I LOVE YOU, BOYS!!!
Yankees Score 20 Runs in Demoralizing Blowout Of Sox!
Seriously, the hitting was scary last night. And so was the pitching. But whatever. The Yankees took the first game of the series by the score of 20-11! In the last Yankee/Red Sox series, the first game was a blowout followed by a 15 inning pitcher’s duel. Will there be a pitcher’s duel today? Because last night the pitching was horrible!
Pitching Analysis: Andy Pettitte pitched for the Yankees, and he was pretty bad. He went 5 innings and gave up 5 runs on 7 hits. He threw 105 pitches in 5 innings. That’s a little ridiculous. There were so many runs scored last night, so I don’t feel like going through how every run was scored. But trust me, Andy was not too good last night.
Tough night for Andy, but at least the Yanks won.
In relief of Andy came Brian Bruney. He pitched an inning and a third, didn’t give up any runs, but he walked 3 and got himself into a large jam. Damaso Marte was called upon to get out of Bruney’s bases loaded 1 out jam. Marte got his 2 batters out without allowing a run.
Sergio Mitre pitched the final 2 innings, which was a treat for me because I had no idea he would pitch last night and any chance I get to stare at him is fine with me! He had a nice 1-2-3 8th, but he had a little trouble in the 9th. He gave up 4 runs before nailing down the final out. But that doesn’t really matter. The Yankees had a huge lead, so I don’t blame Mitre for going after all the hitters with fastballs. And the more runs he gave up, the longer he would have to pitch, and then I could stare at him more before I went to bed. And he looked so good yesterday…it was hot and he was sweating…so….sexy…but I was glad when he got the last out. Poor baby, he must have been so hot and tired.
So the pitching was awful yesterday, but the Yankees managed to win. That’s cool.
Defensive Analysis: The Yankees were a bit sloppy yesterday. In the 6th, Cano made a throwing error. And the next batter hit a ball into shallow center that for some reason no one caught. Whatever. In the 7th, Swisher made an outstanding play to rob Pedroia of an extra-base hit.
Offensive Analysis: The offense was amazing yesterday. Obviously Brad Penny, (who in case you didn’t see my celebrity lookalike, he looks like Larry the Cable Guy,) was unable to “Get’er Done” last night. The Yankees pounded him nonstop for 4 innings, hitting line drives all over the field. The rest of the Smelly Sox pitchers were unable to “Get’er Done” as well!
Hideki had a huge offensive night!
There was so much offense last night and it will take forever to explain how all 20 runs were gotten, so I will just show this instead:
|Rodriguez, A, 3B||4||2||4||1||1||0||0||.263|
|a-Hairston, J, PH-3B||0||1||0||0||1||0||0||.257|
|Matsui, H, DH||6||2||2||7||0||1||6||.266|
|Cabrera, Me, CF||6||2||4||2||0||0||0||.273|
The offense was amazing last night. The pitching wasn’t, but the Yankees managed to get the win anyway. It was a demoralizing loss for the Smelly Sox last night. The heroes for the Yankee win are every member of the Yankee lineup. Everyone contributed. The Yanks now have a 7.5 game lead in the division! Alrighty then! GET ‘ER DONE BOYS!!! GO YANKEES!!!
