One of the games of this series was rained out, the Yankees won the other two. In fact the Yankees have swept the Orioles for the season. They play the Orioles next on May 18, 19 in Baltimore. I hope the rain has stopped by then and the Yankees keep up their streak.
There was no retaliation today for Martin’s plunking yesterday. Not only is Russell Martin a class act, Gardner already got them back with the home run and the Yankees don’t want that kind of hit on their record. People are still saying Swisher’s slide was dirty! (Note to self, STOP reading the comments on MLB.com) If they want to fight, they can wait until a Boston game.
~~Yankees 6, Orioles 3~~
Garcia was perfect through 6, well not really perfect, just scoreless, his ERA is an insane 0.69. I don’t know what his other numbers are, I don’t understand them anyway. So he has now pitched 12 scoreless inning for the Yankees. Buddy Carlyle, after he pitched yesterday said, “Now next to my name in the baseball encyclopedia will be “New York Yankees” that’s kind of cool.” He pitched an inning yesterday and ⅔ of an inning today. 3 outs yesterday, 2 outs today, no runs. We like him.
After Garcia was pulled for Joba, Joba gave up two runs, Mark Reynolds hit a home run. Joba was upset, he has certainly changed from the last two seasons. David came in for next inning and was not as sharp as he has been so far this year. 2 hits, a man on first and third and Mariano comes in. The last out was a long fly ball that Brett Gardner caught on the run. That’s why he’s in the line-up even though his bat is not hot right now, cause he can make that long run and catch.
However Mo is still trying to convince us he’s human. Tying run was scored in the ninth inning. Swisher to Cano to Martin tagged out the run that would have been the winning run. Then we had free baseball in Baltimore. The game remained tied until the 11th inning. Then the Yankees scored three and Boone and Buddy pitched a scoreless bottom of the 11th.
Curtis Granderson got his 7th homer of the season, Cano has hit safely in his last 13 games and Curtis his last 8.
