Hell: The Sequel… Yanks-Tigers Gamer IV

Will this be another torturous night in the Motor City culminating in the demise of the Yankees’ season, or will the Bombers prevail to see this matter settled in the Bronx? We will know soon enough. AJ Burnett has a 7.17 career ERA in Detroit. Rick Porcello doesn’t.
Comment away.

  • I’m at JFK airport. Got my food, walked to a deserted gate, and am watching the game alone with the sound muted. This suits me just fine. Will have to board in about an hour. If AJ has somehow not choked the lead up by the, we’ll win this game and the series.
    Nice play A-Rod. He has been playing a fine 3B this series

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 9:26 pm

    And then the Captain shows the RANGE…2 outs…

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:28 pm
  • Our GG shortstop flashes the leather (after plating the go ahead RBIs). Everyone else in the league is jealous. :)

  • It sounds more glamorous than it is krueg I’m sure. I used to love the travel. Now I just miss my wife and kids.
    But I am a Yankee fan. So that part of my life is indeed perfect. You know how it feels…

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 9:33 pm
  • ARod pops out. 1 out.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:35 pm
  • A-Rod: great defense. Pitiful offense. And no, two RBIs on infield ground balls does not make up for it.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 9:36 pm
  • I just like traveling…work or pleasure. No kids either.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:36 pm

    Swish?

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:37 pm
  • K. 2 outs.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:37 pm
  • Someone take A-Rod, Teix, and Swisher to a shed somewhere and beat the snot out of them.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 9:38 pm
  • K.
    Nada.
    This kid is pitching really well.
    Come on AJ.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:40 pm
  • Very curious to see how quick girardi’s hook is tonight. AJ always has a bad inning and it can go bad so fast with HBPs and wild pitches that I wouldn’t be surprised if Joe yanks him incredibly fast, esp if they only have a 2-run lead.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 9:43 pm
  • Leadoff HR. Victor.
    2-1.
    Come on AJ. Shake it off.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:45 pm

  • Hughes up in the bullpen…

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:48 pm
  • Nice bounce back…K.
    2 outs.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:49 pm
  • Nice curve. When he can actually throw that pitch for called strikes he is tough. It’s his straight fastball that he must only throw out of the zone at this point. One more AJ. Come on man.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 9:50 pm
  • Ball in the dirt gets the runner to 3rd…
    0-2 count though…
    Come on AJ!

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:51 pm
  • K!!!!!!
    THAT A BOY AJ!!!!!
    2-1 after 4.
    Now how about we get him some runs now????

    krueg October 4, 2011, 9:52 pm
  • Hughes is a huge question mark right now out of the pen.
    K – YES!!!!!!!!
    Give AJ the ball next inning. But man oh man offense do we need some runs to allow him to breath.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 9:53 pm

    Will Teix awake tonight??

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:05 pm
  • Predicting a ground out 4-3 for Teix. Prove me wrong, Mark.

    attackgerbil October 4, 2011, 10:06 pm
  • Takes third strike. That’s much worse.

    attackgerbil October 4, 2011, 10:07 pm
  • K’s. Looking.
    Man.
    4-1.
    Come on AJ.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 10:07 pm
  • Why oh why did they give away an out that inning?

    attackgerbil October 4, 2011, 10:08 pm
  • Teix: welcome to a sub-.200 career BA in the post-season.
    That should buy AJ 1 baserunner. And no more.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:08 pm
  • Well, Teixeira does have an upside. Nice scoop.

    attackgerbil October 4, 2011, 10:11 pm
  • DP.
    Huge.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 10:11 pm
  • Don’t know ag. It kills me. And speed gets on to leadoff the 5th. And the DP!!! What the F with that throw Derek??? Thank God Teix catches all over there.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:12 pm
  • AJ knocks it down…
    1-2-3.
    5 solid innings.
    Keep it up AJ!!!
    MORE RUNS!!!!

    krueg October 4, 2011, 10:12 pm
  • Meat of their order up next inning. Buy AJ 1 or 2 more here?!?

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:14 pm
  • Teixeira makes catches/tags at first that maybe two or three other ballplayers in the game can make. It makes stomaching his current slump much more easy.

    attackgerbil October 4, 2011, 10:16 pm
  • Swish grounds out. 1 out.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 10:16 pm

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:16 pm

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:18 pm
  • 1-2-3 6th…nothing.
    Come on AJ. At least 1 more inning man.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 10:19 pm
  • Throw AJ until anyone gets on. Have Hughes warming. Pray. I have big fears of hughes right now.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:20 pm
  • Do not throw another of those FBs in the zone.

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:23 pm
  • Jeter snags the Miggy laser. 1 out.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 10:27 pm
  • Wow. 5.2 IP, 1 ER. One more batter AJ and you have done everything anyone could have wanted. Literally makes the entire season of suck from him irrelevant to me. Except until his next start.

  • MVPs play in the post-season.
    They get big hits.
    They play flawless defense.
    They are dangerous on the basepads.
    That play was huge.

    krueg October 4, 2011, 10:43 pm

    IronHorse (YF) October 4, 2011, 10:45 pm
