Yankees have lost two in a row, the last game to the Blue Jays, Nova was pitching and the score was 4-8. Then the first game with the Rays, Sabathia was on the mound and the score was 1-5. Phil Hughes gets the ball tonight.
~~ Yankees 4, Rays 3 ~~
Hughes did not give up any home runs tonight. That does not mean I have changed his nick name. He is still a fly ball pitcher, but he managed to keep the balls in the park this time. In fact the only home run in this game was hit off of Mariano Rivera.
Tampa scored first in the first inning, then in the fourth the Yankees tied the game. After a rather rough first inning Phil settled down, he even had a 4 pitch inning. That was pretty sweet. In the third inning, Jennings got caught stealing twice. Robot Umps anyone? The Rays scored again in the 7th making the score 2-1. Which was upsetting, then the Yankees tied it again in the 8th, in the ninth with the bases loaded Ichiro brought in 2 runs. Which was a good thing because that jerk Longorio hit a home run off Mariano. But that was all they got, Yankees win.
~~ Questo è tutto, dice la principessa ~~ 😛 Game 19
Yankees 11-8 (0.579)
My favorite game Played by my favorite boys Win or lose my team
What do Casey Kotchman, Kelly Shoppach, Johnny Damon, Elliot Johnson and Evan Longoria have in common? Besides all playing for the Rays, they also each hit a home run off CC this game, making this his second loss in a row and win #10 for David Price. Who despite having an awesome twitter, is now on my list.
