Brevity due to work getting in the way of my leisure. Comment away, good people.
But Hiroki is about to cough it up big time…
Gets out of it.
1-0 after 2.
Reward him by raining baseballs into the seats.
Looks like it’s raining pretty hard there…
Another huge K with a guy on 3rd and 2 outs.
Leadoff double that Curtis misplayed…
That should do it for the big 1 run lead…
2nd and 3rd with 2 outs…
ANOTHER HUGE K!!!!!
Well done Hiroki.
1-0 after 4 in the pouring rain.
Jeter leadoff single…
CURTIS GOES YARD!!!!!!
Hiroki holds the lead like a samurai.
3-2 after 6.
Feels like the Braves have had someone on 3rd all night. Amazing they only have 2 runs. Logan is scuffling though here in the 7th…going to be tough to keep that lead.
GREAT job by BOOOOOOOOOOONE Logan…
No damage in the 7th.
Logan made Hinske look bad on that strike 2. Come on Boone. One more of those…
Harmless pop-up. Kay beating up on the Braves management for leaving 2 lefties in to face Logan when there are good righty bats on the bench. Oh well – on the the 8th in a downpour.
It’s apparently monsoon season in Atlanta.
They walk A-Rod to pitch to Cano even though there are already 2 outs. Just plain weird. Men on 1st and 2nd now with 2 outs.
And Cano K’s. On to the bottom of the 8th
Leadoff man on in the 8th. Braves have put 14 guys on base tonight. Yanks playing with fire.
Make that 15 men now, including yet another guy on 3rd. Only one out. Gulp.
Suicide squeeze is fouled off instead.
3-2 going to the final frame…
Huge huge huge huge DP. Braves stranding RISP like the Yankees were until about a week ago. If the Yanks hold onto this lead they will have stolen this one.
Swisher K’s but the ball gets past McCann, then bounces back and roles past McCann again. And Swisher gets to first. Is that scored 2 passed balls? Martin up.
1 run lead.
So he gets 4 K’s recorded for that inning. Funny. Can they sneak out of Atlanta with a sweep???
2 quick outs for Sori. Chipper up.
If there is a dumber or more annoying fan ritual than the tomahawk chant I can’t think of it.
Chipper singles the other way. Not a single 1-2-3 inning for Yankee pitchers tonight. And now comes the chant and chop with a vengeance. Morons.
Gift strike there. 0-1. So he throws it in exactly the same spot and it’s a ball this time.
1-2 to Heyward.
Induces the pop-up to Cano. Soriano has been exceptional for the Yanks. Cashman didn’t want to kick in that $15mill, but it sure is nice to have him right now.
