Mark Teixeira sat last night out and Texas evened up the series at 1-1. Alex Rodriguez had four chances to plate runs and drove in one, just about summing up a lousy night for Yankee fans. I don’t believe Pettitte was anywhere near 100%. Tonight, it’s Chien-Ming Wang returning against Brandon McCarthy and I’m hoping for seven good innings. Brett Tomko held it together last night for three innings and Phil Hughes is pushed back to the pen, which all of a sudden means the Yanks have two long relievers.
This month, Mike Francesa gets the nod. Courtesy of Ghost, who em’d me the idea. Consider yourselves demotivated:
Andy Pettitte had seven strikeouts versus a Jays lineup short Vernon Wells. Mark Teixeira walked point, driving in the first and second Yankee runs. Marte to Veras to WarRam closed it out. Today, it’s Joba Chamberlain versus the Reds. Look out, Jonny Gomes.
Ollie Perez got his head together for six innings-plus of one-run ball. Dan Murphy was again a catalyst; yesterday it was with a game-tying home run in the fourth inning. J.J. Poo and Bobby Parnell closed out an all-around excellent pitched game. Seeing quite a few games decided this spring on errors – in the field or on solitary pitches left up in the zone. Today, it’s John Maine versus the Marlins.
