I only saw pieces of this game. I picked it up in the bottom of the 1st – when the Yanks were down 2-0. Then, after Mientkiewicz tied the score, I had to switch to the most exciting hour in television – Prison Break. I got back to the game just in time to see Hughes lose his stuff in the 6th – and then see Gator, Eiland and Hughes spend forever in the dugout working on Phil breaking his hands from the stretch. Geez, I hope the hands-thing doesn’t become an issue for Hughes in his next start…where it gets into his head and becomes a block or something.
I was pretty gassed last night – and since the O’s are so bad these days, I felt safe leaving the game early and going to bed. The last thing I saw was Posada getting robbed at second to start the 7th – so, I missed Farnsworth melting in the 9th. It’s a sin on him that Rivera had to come into this game.
Good win with the Tigers losing a close one. Seeing how bad the O’s really are now, the Yankees better run the table on them this week and the games that follow.
Yankees magic number is now nine. Anytime it’s under 10 with a dozen games to go, is great. Looking good….
