Sending the White Sox home


~~Yankees 12, White Sox 3~~

Once again the Yankee starter went deep. This time it was C.C. Sabathia pitching 7 innings, the only runs the White Sox got were unearned.

The first two runs the Yankees got were without a hit, then in the 5th Gardner started with a home run, he also got the first out. In all there were 12 batters, the inning was 32 minutes and six different hitters drove in runs. Then in the 7th inning Nick Swisher hit his first home run of the season. Actually on his first base hit of the game he had the biggest grin, like he felt things were turning around.

Lance Pendleton came in to pitch the last two innings. Not a save situation, but he pitched two scoreless innings.

How do you spell relief? Bartolo Colon

He doesn’t have a commanding presence on the mound. He doesn’t have Andy Pettitte’s stare, or David Robertson’s high socks. He doesn’t stand tall on the mound like A.J. Burnett, in fact, in comparison with most Yankee pitchers you could describe him as short and dumpy (some unkind person called him Big Bart). He doesn’t have a cutter like Mariano Rivera. What he does have is remarkable control of his sinker and and fastball that tops out at 96 mph. He has the ability to pitch like the former Cy Young winner and 2 time All Star that he is. He is Bartolo Colon and he is simply amazing, sit down Mr. Konerko, you have been whiffed by the Great Bartolo.

On April 3 when he pitched against Detroit his ERA was 9.00, with each game it has come down till this game with the White Sox, his ERA is now 2.77 and his WHIP is 1.12 (I think that’s good).

Also I need to send my apologies to Phil Hughes for saying he needs to get his shit together, he may be suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome. If he is he might need surgery (a twelve hour procedure that includes removing part of a rib) and it could possibly be the end of his season.

~~Yankees 3, White Sox 1~~

Bartolo pitched 8 innings, 99 pitches, 1 earned run. Mo came in for the 9th and got his 8th save of the season.

Teixeira left game with right shoulder soreness. He dove to get a ball during the last game and he dove again tonight and aggravated it.
