Game 83 Recap

[WE data via FG]

Not In The Highlights:
  • The Yanks loaded the bases in the first inning with one out but Posada and Thames struck out to end the threat.

  • A-Rod fell down trying to catch a pop up in foul territory
  • A.J. Burnett build on his last strong outing against the Blue Jays with a seven inning, two run effort last night. He only struck out two batters but induced 11 ground balls and allowed just five hits and two walks.

  • In the fourth inning, despite the fact that Francisco Cervelli erased a leadoff single by Marcus Thames with a double play, the Yanks managed to plate five runs. Ramiro Pena and Derek Jeter both chipped in RBI singles and Mark Teixeira launched a three run homer off of Gio Gonzalez to center field.

  • Stop the presses, Damaso Marte pitched a full fucking inning!

  • Joba Chamberlain allowed a single to lead off the ninth inning but erased it with a double play and escaped without allowing a run.
Up Next:
  • The Yanks fly up the coast to Seattle for a four game set with the Mariners which will lead them into the All-Star break.


  1. I'm liking the new recap format! Off topic, but I was hoping for a snarky post on Youk injuring his ankle when using his foot to move some dirt around the batter box!

  2. Yes I like the new format as well, nicely done. Funny about Marte, hopefully this starts a trend.
