From The Lohud Yankees Blog :
“We’re just not getting hits,” Derek Jeter said. “Every season it’s the same thing. There are periods when it seems like you get a lot of hits and other times it seems like you can’t find a hit, but that happens every year. If you could figure it out, then nobody would ever struggle.”
I don’t think I could put it any better. Over the course of 162 games, every team goes through a rough patch. To get through it as a fan, I always remember the old baseball axiom, you’re never as good as your are when you’re winning and you’re never as bad as you’re when you’re losing.
That being said, I didn’t watch this game because I was at work. Since I didn’t see the game, I won’t regurgitate the box score since I’m sure everyone reading this has already peaked. I will say this though, I really hope that Jeter doesn’t miss any time due to a Verlander HBP to the hand because a lineup that features a 6-7-8-9 of Thames-Golson-Winn-Pena is the formula for an extended losing trend.
