Live blogging the rubber game ~ Baltimore vs New York, 5/2

We know what has happened so far, on Friday Kuroda pitched a gem, (and made a fantastic tag at the plate in the 7th inning), Mariano got his 5th save and Yankees won. Saturday, Phil was not so great, Nunez bobbled the play and the bats took a vacation. Tonight is the rubber game. Nova normally gets great run support. Here is another attempt by me of live blogging. Due to the nature of this post, I will be posting the score at the bottom of the post. It’s almost game time, I’m going to turn on my TV now.

Hardy singles; Markakis doubles, Hardy to third; Jones flies out to Cano (making fools aware) LOVE 2

Bottom
Jeter strikes out 1
Granderson flies out to center field 2
Rodriguez singles; Cano strikes out 3
