Hey, this Edinson Volquez kid is pretty good. So, what can you do?
On the bright side, Hideki Matsui’s knee allowed him to play again and Mike Mussina gave the Yankees a solid eight innings in this contest.
Sure, that top of the fifth inning could have played out a little differently – and that would have made this an even closer game. But, you can’t win every game. And, very few teams are beating Volquez this season.
Games like this one…you just rub some dirt on it…try and walk it off…and come back tomorrow.
