Yanks got three runs in this game – and the last one was a gift on a wild pitch. However, the O’s only got two runs in this game – partly thanks to a great catch by Brett Gardner in the fourth inning. So, the Yankees win…even with Mo Rivera giving us a scare, allowing runners to reach first and third, after two outs, in the ninth.
So, this was the 8th time in 19 days that Phil Coke got into a game. Seems like the Yankees really want to give him a look, huh?
Carl Pavano is now 4-1 on the season. This means, at this moment, Carl Pavano, alone, has won as many games for the 2008 Yankees as Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, and Ian Kennedy…combined. I’m starting to get afraid that Brian Cashman, seeing all this, might try and take Carl to go see Mamma Mia again this off-season…
Don’t do it Brian…do not do it.
