Saturday In AT&T Park: Yanks-Giants Gamer II

Let’s hope it you’d not think it was the Fourth of July, meaning no fireworks from Barry Bonds, who is going for home run 750 after ringing up his latest last night against Proctor in a losing effort against the Bombers. Chien Ming Wang (7-4, 3.33) has given up a stingy four homers all season, and is going for his fifth straight victory in as many starts; he’s been particularly good in his last three, in which he’s logged 24 2/3 innings and given up 4 runs. Matt Morris (7-4, 3.21) is on the mound for the Giants and has a strikingly similar pitching line to Wanger, but was shelled in his last start, when the BoSox scored eight off the righty and chased him after four innings. Today’s affair is a FOX game, so fans won’t be left in the dark on the proceedings on this lovely Saturday. Comment away.

  • sorry yf’s. fox couldn’t get through the first inning without showing dave roberts 04′ steal of second.

  • wow. posada gunned down at second by right fielder randy winn. a super nice throw by winn combined with jorges wheels made a sure double an out by 4 feet.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 4:17 pm
  • Wow, Morris sucks. Two out of every three curveballs are hangers and the Yankee hitters are just sitting on those. The last three Yankee hits (all for extra bases) have been on hanging curves.
    OK, A-hole just singled on some other crappy Morris pitch, but the point stands. Morris blows. The Yankees should crush him.

  • Now its time for Girardi to kiss Bonds’ ass for making a “great play” on Posada’s base hit to left. Any left fielder besides Bonds including Manny makes that catch, but the fact that Bonds kept the ball in front of him instead of making the catch was “great.”
    I wish Girardi had taken the O’s job just so I wouldn’t have to listen to his crap.

  • welcome back mm.
    this has been a game of inches today. 3-0 yanks.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 4:43 pm
  • i guess colorado kinda blew their wad in the sox and yanks series. nice to be toronto.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 4:49 pm
  • Thanks!
    Morris blows. Theres no good excuse for the Yankees to lose today. Not that I’d mind, but…

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 4:49 pm
  • This just in:
    Dave Roberts is good at beating the Yankees.
    Double and RBI for Roberts! 3-1, Yankees.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 4:53 pm
  • Wang walks two and gives up a double, but is saved by the Giants offensive offense. Still 3-1, Yankees.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 4:59 pm
  • Apparently there’s a good reason Matt Morris has refrained from signing with an AL team.

    SF June 23, 2007, 5:23 pm
  • This game is 4-1 now, but if you look at the hits you see how one-sided its really been. The Yankees have 11 hits and the Giants have two. Surprising that the Giants are only down by three.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 5:24 pm
  • Bochy really trying to milk every last bit of uselessness out of Morris…

    SF June 23, 2007, 5:24 pm
  • This is the kind of game the Giants deserve to lose 10-1, but end up only losing 6-1.

    SF June 23, 2007, 5:25 pm
  • Wow, I figured Bochy was squeezing Morris last inning as the pitcher’s spot came up in the bottom half, but he sends Morris out to hit for himself. The Giants will be lucky to be down by three after this inning, the way Morris is getting beaten on.

    SF June 23, 2007, 5:33 pm
  • in that damon pepsi commercial….he looks out to me.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 5:46 pm
  • Tie game! Theres that Yankee bullpen I know and love.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 6:25 pm
  • winn ties the game at four on a single up the middle off bruney.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 6:25 pm
  • loaded for lamar.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 6:29 pm
  • You don’t often see Bonds swinging at pitches that far out of the zone.
    2 and 2…

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 6:30 pm
  • Bonds walks. Giants lead, 5-4.
    Walking Bonds was the worst thing that Bruney could do.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 6:32 pm
  • bruney walks bonds to force in the go ahead run. this is not the bruney i saw to start this season.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 6:32 pm
  • Bruney is gone. Here comes… uh… someone.
    Joe Torre is a really slow walker. Does he have hip or knee problems? I don’t mean to make fun of him in any way here – I sincerely don’t know.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 6:34 pm
  • You don’t see Jeter swing at pitches around his eyes very often. Thanks, Cap’n! By the way, YR OUT!

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 6:48 pm
  • Jeter is hurt?

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 6:56 pm
  • I can hardly hear myself over the din of all these Yankee fan comments. I think we should rename this site, “Sox Fan”.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 6:58 pm
  • oh they’ll show up now mm. a-rod ties it.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 7:06 pm
  • Uh, it might be time to give A-Rod the Bonds treatment. Why does anyone pitch to him, even in a one run game with none out and nobody on? He’s murder.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:08 pm
  • Why did they take Bonds out?!

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:09 pm
  • sf- it was a double switch for defensive purposes at the end of the 8th. but that might have been a rhetorical question.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 7:15 pm
  • Yes, it was.
    This game is a Yankees win, guaranteed.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:17 pm
  • Someone remind Thom “Oblivious” Brennamann that Bruce Bochy was thrown out like three innings ago. He keeps saying that Bochy took Bonds out for defensive purposes, but Bochy is probably in his office downing some Wild Turkey right now.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:18 pm
  • extras. ill. i guess bochey was smart to leave in morris for so long.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 7:19 pm
  • I have switched over to the Mets/A’s and am reminded that I still dislike Orlando Hernandez intensely.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:23 pm
  • Oh, and any Sox fans who want to play the “A-Rod isn’t clutch” card can stuff it. The guy is AWESOME. Throw a league average (or even slightly above league-average 3B) on that team and they’d be 15 games out, at least.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:25 pm
  • Ryan Klesko is one of my least favorite players of the last 15 years. I never understood why he and Mike Cameron got any respect at the plate – both guys have holes in their swings the size of Lake Okeechobee.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:28 pm
  • If the Yankees offered to give the Giants three baserunners and an opportunity to hit a ball off a tee, I am pretty sure they still wouldn’t be able to score. What an awful team. And I don’t mean this to disparage the Yankees – the Sox beat up on them last weekend.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:29 pm
  • Uh, why are they pitching to A-Rod with an open base and one down, a slow runner up next? This is seriously retarded.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:35 pm
  • And A-Rod doubles. That was just HIDEOUS managing. What game are these clowns in the Giants dugout watching?
    God, I am so thankful (occasional vocal criticism and all) that Terry Francona manages the Sox.

    SF June 23, 2007, 7:36 pm
  • Did they ever say why Jeter was hurt? Guessing it’s some sort of hip/hip flexor thing.

    no sleep til brooklyn SF June 23, 2007, 8:03 pm
  • Jeter hurt himself diving back into first (so I heard from Moron Announcer Number 1 or 2)
    Two outs in the thirteenth.
    Apparently its Rivera in the Yankees bullpen and thats it. Here comes Clemens to throw in the bullpen.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:16 pm
  • OK, so Clemens has now stopped throwing and the Yankees are going to let the great Scott PROCTOR! hit. And by “hit” I mean “strikeout”.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:18 pm
  • See? Who says Proctor can’t stand there with a bat on his shoulders. Personally I think he was doing his Bobby Abreu impression.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:20 pm
  • Who had June 23rd in the “When is Scott Proctor’s arm going to physically fly off his body?” pool?

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:21 pm
  • Boy, I hope this game ends soon so I can see “Cops.”
    Base hit for the Giants!

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:23 pm
  • a bunt! And Proctor, doing his best Julian Tavarez impression, underhands the ball from the far side of the mound.
    Runner on second, one out.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:24 pm
  • Fly ball to center doesn’t get it done. Two outs, runner still on second. Its up to Omar “.180 OBP” Vizquel…

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:27 pm
  • OH! Vizquel hits a liner down the left field line that lands just foul…

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:28 pm
  • Proctor goes 3-1 to Vizquel.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:29 pm
  • And Vizquel just misses again! Another line drive down the left field line. This one was even closer. Missed by a foot. Full count….

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:29 pm
  • Infield single for Vizquel! But the run doesn’t score. First and third with two outs.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:31 pm
  • Its up to some guy who’s name I can’t spell…
    And he does it!!! Base hit! Giants Win!! Billy Crystal can kiss my rump!

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:32 pm
  • I have no idea how the Yankees lost this game.

    mattymatty June 23, 2007, 8:33 pm
  • So is A-Rod’s homer off Papelbon still a turning point?

    SF June 23, 2007, 8:42 pm
  • more importantly…does clutch still apply when your team loses.

    sf rod June 23, 2007, 8:46 pm
  • Yes, it does. A-Rod’s homer was totally clutch. The rest of the team? Not so much.

    SF June 23, 2007, 8:49 pm
  • Just got in to read about the heartbreaker. Or at least if my heart wasn’t already broken so many times..
