A noble comeback by New York ended up not being enough to hold off the resourceful Angels last night. Solid defensive play and clutch hitting from rookie catcher Mike Napoli dashed New York’s hopes of a win. No ground was lost in the division race, but questions were raised about the health of a certain third baseman and the effectiveness of a recently reactivated reliever.
West coast baseball fans get to see Corey Lidle face Ervin Santana as New York slogs towards the end of their long road trip. Santana was stellar in his start against New York way back in April. I’m fifty miles outside of town working today, but hopefully I will make it back in time to see the last four or five innings.
