Rubber Match: Rays-Yanks Gamer III

The Yankees send Kuroda to face the Rays, and then will get a day off before Toronto comes to town on Tuesday. The Yankees faced Rays starter Matt Moore on September 5th and got the better of him in that contest. He’s winless over his last four starts. Comment away.

  • Yanks up 5-0 going to the 4th. This feels good. Come on Kuroda. Put all the pressure on Baltimore…

  • Just like that zobrist hits a dinger. 5-1. ugh.

  • Rays have to go to the pen already in the 4th – Brandon Gomes.

  • Nunez with an excuse-me single off Gomes’ leg and then steals second on the first pitch to Jeter. So nice to have some speed on the roster again.

  • Then steals third on the next pitch :) Love it.

  • Jeter walks. On his bum ankle I doubt he’s going anywhere. Swisher up. Anything but a K or GIDP would be nice…

  • Actually an infield pop-out would also suck. Thanks for illustrating that Nick. Even a GIDP would have scored the run you piece of crap. A-Rod up.

  • A-Rod with the deep sac fly RBI. 6-1.

  • Jennings loses Cano’s pop-up in the sun :) This is just not the Rays’ day. Multiple bounces going the Yanks’ way. Martin up, having hit the 3-run HR already. But he grounds out. Oh well.

  • Kuroda cutting through the Rays like a hot knife through butter. The Godfather playing on the hotel TV while I listen to the game on WCBS. Big smiles…

  • 1st and 2nd no outs. Keep it together Kuroda…

  • At least Zobrist didn’t take him yard again. Trouble.

  • Bases loaded no out. Lord.

    IronHorse - YF September 16, 2012, 3:09 pm
  • 2 runs in, still no outs. Tying run at the plate. This is going south very fast.

    IronHorse - YF September 16, 2012, 3:13 pm
  • Gotta make that play, Alex.

    attackgerbil September 16, 2012, 3:14 pm
  • GIDP brings another run in. 6-4, but at least the bases are empty now with 2 outs. Some more insurance would be nice.

    IronHorse - YF September 16, 2012, 3:16 pm
  • Kuroda strikes him out to end the bleeding, but he’s at 101 pitches and we’ll be into the pen now…

    IronHorse - YF September 16, 2012, 3:18 pm
  • K-fest today. 10 Rays and 9 Yanks have K’d in just 6 innings.

    IronHorse - YF September 16, 2012, 3:25 pm
  • Girardi mixing and matching already in the 7th.

    IronHorse - YF September 16, 2012, 3:30 pm
  • Phelps with the unintentional intentional walk to Pena…now the go-ahead run comes up with 2 outs…

    IronHorse - YF September 16, 2012, 3:37 pm
  • Phelps with the K. Huge. Now to Robertson and Soriano. Let’s give em a bit more cushion fellas…

  • 643 erases ARod’s error. Ball game, shirt out.
