Well, this one ended up being a lot closer than it appeared it might be…back in the second inning. In the end, a 4-2 loss…very close.
Is this what the Yankees offense looks like without a white (not red, it’s more than red) hot Mark Teixiera?
A-Rod had his chances in this one. Down by two, bottom of the third, bases loaded, one out, and a 3-1 count…and Rodriguez rolls into a 5-5-3 DP to end the frame. Down by two, bottom of the sixth, runner on third, one out, and Rodriguez whiffs on five pitches. If Alex comes through in either of those spots, even with just a productive out, it’s a whole different ballgame…but, no-go, amigo.
Thanks for coming…see ya tomorrow afternoon.
