Breaking Even: Halos-Yanks Gamer IV

With a win today, the Yanks would split the series. That’s like a series victory against any other team. Unfortunately, they must beat John Lackey to reach this unlikeliest of goals. Darrell Rasner goes for our heroes. Comment here on all the action.

  • well, not exactly a surprising beginning, but discouraging nonetheless. 2-0 Angels, still in the first.

  • Damon leads off with a single. No no-hitter today!

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:24 pm
  • Jeter bunts. I dunno about that.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:25 pm
  • God I hate that Jeter bunt.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:26 pm
  • Abreu strikes out on three pitches.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:26 pm
  • Lackey has yet to throw a ball. He’s just attacking the strike zone.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:27 pm
  • He k’s A-Rod with a fast ball right down the middle. I’m leaving soon, which is just as well. I don’t like our chances.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:29 pm
  • That 1st was painful. Both ends.

    YF August 3, 2008, 1:32 pm
  • Rasner starts out the second looking like Lackey with a 3 pitch k.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:33 pm
  • He then walks Willits who is batting .109 because you want to put a guy with speed on base.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:34 pm
  • Ugh. Figgins with a double to left center and this game is soon going to be over. Wow, at least they’re getting it out of the way early.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:35 pm
  • 3-0 angels.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:40 pm
  • a dp limits the damage, but this game is already out of hand.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 1:41 pm
  • Bobby Meacham strikes again

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 2:26 pm
  • yanks tie it up in the bottom of the 7th. Some nice contributions from the new yankees Nady and Pudge.

    Sam-YF August 3, 2008, 3:27 pm
  • NADY!!!!!
    3R HR puts the yankees up 8-5. Cashman is a genius.

    Sam-YF August 3, 2008, 3:32 pm
  • Nady!

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 3:32 pm
  • BOBBY!!!!! tied 5-5

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 3:36 pm
  • Woops!! I’m on a bit of a delay because of dvr.

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 3:38 pm
  • J is a little late there.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 3:38 pm
  • well, I might as well…
    NADY!!!!!!

  • *weeping*

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 3:52 pm
  • Grand slam teixeria.
    Bill stoneman is a genius
    Bad edwar shows up today. What a terrible way to lose if this holds.

    Sam-YF August 3, 2008, 3:53 pm
  • yeah, no more ALL CAPS for me.
    this is a little hard for me to fathom.

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 3:53 pm
  • Pudge gets on. Come on guys, this is still do-able. Let’s return the heartbreak

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 3:56 pm
  • YES…aybar bobbles Melky’s version of a bunt. 2 on no out.

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:00 pm
  • CHRISTIAN STEALS 3RD BAD THROW…SCROES TIE ING RUN!!!!!!!!!!

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:01 pm
  • Let’s SCROE some more. Damon walks

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:03 pm
  • bases loaded 1 out. Alex is up

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:09 pm
  • A-Rod hits into an RBI no-out double play!! I’ll take it 10-9!!!

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:11 pm
  • Are those the Angels in the field?

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 4:11 pm
  • Cano!!! Jesus, this game has been ridiculous. I need to gtet out to enjoy my vacation, but it keeps on pulling me back.

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 4:15 pm
  • yeah, seriously. Cano 2-rbi pinch hit.

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:15 pm
  • NADY again!!

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:17 pm
  • Christian!

    Nick-YF August 3, 2008, 4:20 pm
  • This has got to be the game of the year so far, ahead of Joba’s Fenway shutout vs. Beckett.

    J (yf) August 3, 2008, 4:37 pm
  • Salvaging a split vs this team when they came into the series as hot as they were is a major victory. Not to mention the fact we were going against Lackey too….

    Sam-YF August 3, 2008, 5:01 pm
  • Ya, wished we got that start back from Ponson, but otherwise, a split against the red-hot Angels isn’t so bad. But we’ll see next week.

    Lar August 3, 2008, 8:37 pm
  • TURNING POINT!

    SF August 3, 2008, 9:13 pm
  • I bought a Nady tee shirt…I love him.

    krueg August 4, 2008, 10:54 am
  • Incredibly entertaining and ultimately satisfying game yesterday. Down 5-0 to a Lackey-led Angels team and then blowing a bases loaded with no outs situation against him – scoring nothing…I really thought it was over at that point. Great comeback (twice).
