A double by ARod scored a run, and an error by Millar scored another. Yanks up 2-0 in the first as Pettitte and Halladay face off at Rogers Centre. Comment away.
Looks like Halladay is on the Yanks payroll!
The captain flashes some nice leather there, pulling in a line drive to lead off the bottom of the 3rd inning.
Pettitte is falling apart per usual…cannot blow a lead against Halladay.
Walks the f-ing bases loaded on 4 pitches and who steps to the plate??? Rios the Yankee killer. This should about do it…
Now he cannot even throw a strike…un-f-cking-believable. How bad do you suck Pettitte??? Really???
2-1. SAC fly…GET ONE MORE OUT PETTITTE!!!!
SCIENCE BE PRAISED! He got the out. 2-1. Need more runs, now.
On lockdown now by Halladay…better hold the lead Pettitte.
leadoff single…get him out of the game.
Doc is all over us…no more runs until we get into the bullpen.
Pettitte doing his usual second-half bend-but-don’t-break job. Halladay in total strike-throwing-machine mode. If the Yanks can SOMEHOW survive the next 2 innings without surrendering the lead we can reach Hughes/Mo. Come on Andy…6 more outs…
I love Andy Pettitte. He steps up in big games regularly. A 3-hitter right now.
Solid 6th for Pettitte, we needed that…
He’s capable…just so inconsistant.
Cano grounds into a f-cking DP…nice job ass. 2 pitches to get 2 outs for Halladay. He’s going the distance against us. All they need is a lead and it’s over.
Krueg, you’ve got a short memory. The guy has so consistently pitched well for them in big spots regardless of how good or bad his season was going at the time.
Freaking Halladay is getting through each successive innings with fewer pitches than the previous inning. Right now he’s at like 5-pitches per inning. Seriously. The guy is sick.
Sick catch by Melky…beautiful.
Just one more out Andy…come on…
Painful 2-strike bloop double. D@+#it.
Walk…goodnight Pettitte. Great job. Almost 7 innings…LET’S GO HUGHES!!!!
That’s it for Andy. Great job tonight.
Hughes in with 2-on and the smallest of leads…
Hughes’ 92-mph f-ball looking like 99 against Encarnacion…
Oops-that’s Bautista…DROPPED the nose-to-toes curve! Love it!!
That was a great sequence of pitches. Bautista looked like his pants would fall off on that curve.
OK–I’ve given up on the prospect of scoring any more off Halladay or getting him out of the game (his pitch-total seems to be dropping every inning at this rate) so it’s all on Hughes to get through the top of the order in the 8th…
Phil is an unstoppable force…
I swear, Halladay is 0-2 on EVERYONE.
Roy who??? Roy who!!??!!
OK – I’m kidding. But those were HUGE dingers for Damon and Teix. Insurance for Phil/Mo MUCH needed!!!! YES!!!!
Halladay is unreal.
Back-to-back HR’s off Doc…money.
Hughes falling apart now…not good.
Uh-oh. 2 on, 0 out. Those insurance runs loom large now but may not be enough…come on kid.
No…wait. BIG K! 1 out…come on Phil!!!
Big K there. F+@ing Millar here. Let’s see the GIDP…
That looked like Jorge thought the curve was coming and got slammed by the f-ball…
I hate Millar.
BIG BIG BIG K on the inside heater. First inside fastball of the at-bat. HUGE!
And here comes Mo.
I have to say that as much as I love Mo, I don’t like Girardi’s turning to him for these 4-out saves when Hughes has been money out of the pen.
Of course, if my job was riding onit, I’d probably pitch Mo until his arm fell off.
I cannot believe that just happened…
Wells slams the 2-run double. That was close to a game-tier right there. Ummm…get Rios please.
I know Krueg…it’s so ridiculously rare that Mo gives up a line drive, let alone runs. But he gets Rios on the ground ball and we are 3 outs away. More insurance please?
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Matsui with a MONSTER shot to CF. Halladay must be PISSED. His last 5 pitches = 3 HRs. Me likey.
A single here by JHJr. would get us back up by 3…
Big big win. If Mitre can somehow survive tomorrow we will have done better in Toronto than I frankly expected. (IF Mitre survives…)
HUGE IF…maybe even colossal??? MEE-tre is meat. We both know it.
Longoria with the walk off hr. That was a huge shot.
