I Know I’ve Seen This Place Before: Yanks-Os Gamer I

And I know I’ve seen this house before – L.L.

The Yankees roll into Camden glad to face a few hitters whose name doesn’t rhyme with Ranny Mamirez, sending Phil Hughes to the mound to kick off the three-game series against the Orioles. Hughes was roughed up in his last two starts, bowing out after three innings against the Royals and lasting but two innings against the Sox in Fenway. The Yankees split with Baltimore last year but had great success against tonight’s pitcher, Daniel Cabrera, who was 1-3 against the Bombers in 2007 and allowed 20 earned runs in 27 innings over five starts.

  • ARod down swinging on a full count, chasing one low in, after Abreu reached on a two-out throwing error by Luis Hernandez.

  • Frist post pitch from Hughes to Roberts is a hard liner, but right at Cano. Phil then starts Melivn Mora off with a called strike.

  • Hughes misses high, then a pitch tails away for 2-1. The next pitch is bounced up the middle over Hughes but Jeter ranges to his left (?!) behind second and makes the throw for two away.

  • Ugh…come on Phil!

  • Markakis walks to bring up Millah

  • Millah pops it straight up to Moeller to end the inning.

  • Cabrera drills Godzilla on the arm to lead off the Yankee second.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:25 pm
  • Cabrera showing some control issues, putting two pitches inside and in the dirt to Robi.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:27 pm
  • The full count: Robi has to tip it though it was low as the hit and run was on. Another payoff: fouled away.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:29 pm
  • Now Robi lines out to short and Matsui is doubled off at second. Ooof.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:30 pm
  • Giambi called for coming around by home plate ump Ed Montague when he clearly did not swing. Ugly call.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:31 pm
  • Jason grounds out to first to end the inning. Pfft.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:32 pm
  • Luke Scott rips a hard shot up first base but foul. Close one.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:34 pm
  • Ahead 0-2, Hughes comes inside twice to even the count. Deuces: curve inside and low to make it full. The payoff: fastball in; Scott lifts it a few feet short of the track in right where Abreu makes the catch.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:36 pm
  • Aubrey Huff takes a pitch for a strike, then a change outside. The 1-1 is fouled back, then a ball. The 2-2 is fouled back again. Hughes misses low to make it full. The payoff: popped out of play. And another foul. Hughes’ curve misses to walk Huff. urgh.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:39 pm
  • That pitch to Huff was pretty good.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:40 pm
  • Okay, I’m out. Good night all.

    attackgerbil April 18, 2008, 7:41 pm
  • 29 pitches – 14 balls. Not too sharp.

    nettles April 18, 2008, 7:41 pm
  • Yanks ties the game on a Mora error.

  • What’s with this place? You guys are it? The Sox dominate this blog? I thought it was an even forum, but from what I’ve seen the Sux fans gang up on the Yanks when they say something about what the Sox do. And when the Sox do wrong, they gang up against the Yanks fans they bully the shit out of them to shut up. I’ve never seen such crap.

  • marc- what happened? no sf’s even commented in this game thread.

    sf rod April 18, 2008, 10:56 pm
  • oops. wrong thread.

    Marc YF April 18, 2008, 11:09 pm
  • If by “wrong thread,” you meant “wrong blog,” then I’d understand…

    Paul SF April 19, 2008, 1:24 am
  • no, he means wrong thread…his sentiment, while dead-on accurate is just misplaced in this particular thread…i’m sure he’ll get another opportunity to use it again soon…
