Streak Reset: Yanks-Jays Gamer

Scott Richmond goes for the Jays while Joba is on the mound for the Bombers who look to start a new winning streak after last night’s disappointment. Meanwhile, intrepid rodent reporter attackgerbil is in Seattle to scout the Mariners, who face the White Sox. Nah, that’s not true; he just can’t afford to stay for the Yanks-M’s series starting Thursday. Tonight at SafeCo it is John Danks (9-8, 4.23) vs. Doug Fister, who is throwing is first major-league start. Should be thrilling. Time to hit happy hour.

Comment away.

  • Joba looks good early.

  • Yankees lighting up Scott Richmond like a pinball machine early on.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 7:24 pm
  • Well, they only have one run so far.

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 7:25 pm
  • Man, why the hell did Tex get sent home?
    That was a perfect couple of throws, but the catcher had the ball when Tex was halfway down the line.

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 7:30 pm
  • Joba looks even better in the second.

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 7:36 pm
  • Great inning for Joba, 11 pitches.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 7:37 pm
  • Damn, Robbie was halfway to 2nd on his home run trot on that one.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 7:40 pm
  • Man, Cano is en fuego. He is a very dangerous hitter when he’s on.

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 7:40 pm
  • ha ha, BALK.

  • feliz cumpleaños Melky!

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 7:44 pm
  • Melky: “here you go Robinson Cano it is a sacrifice fly for you”
    Robbie: “thank you Melky Cabrera you are my best friend”

  • OMG AROD SO UNCLUTCH!!1

  • I’m pretty much talking to myself in this game thread.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 7:54 pm
  • And Joba suddenly loses the strike zone in the 3rd.

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 8:05 pm
  • Well, that sucked. Joba usually wriggles out of these situations.

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 8:07 pm
  • I guess it’s basically 0-0 again. I have a feeling the Yankees will get to Richmond again, though.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 8:09 pm
  • Joba needs to cut the Steve Trachsel impression out and pick up the pace.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 8:21 pm
  • GODZIRRA hits it to the moon! Tie game!
    I love this team.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 9:44 pm
  • Back to back in back to back days! HIP HIP~

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 9:46 pm
  • Posada eeeeks it over the wall in right. Are they really going to do instant replay on this one? They say a fan interfered, but he actually didn’t.

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 9:47 pm
  • Inglett jumped too soon; not enough ups. This review has to be a formality.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 9:48 pm
  • Way to go, fat guy in the Mantle t-shirt!

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 9:51 pm
  • Winske.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 9:52 pm
  • Melky with a Jeterian slap hit to left on an inside-out swing. Yankees up 6-4.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 10:00 pm
  • Damon singles to right, Melky flies down the line from second and scores. 7-4! Johnny gets caught in a rundown, Keystone Kops routine ensues, ends after he slips.
    Beautiful inning.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 10:03 pm
  • First to 70!

    AndrewYF August 11, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • Great win. Great game. This team makes me smile.

    John - YF August 11, 2009, 10:13 pm
  • Nice to see Mo getting the better of his old nemesis… MARCO SCUTARO.
    I <3 this team so much.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 10:15 pm
  • I took a lot of crap for my statements early on about how much I really liked this team and how confident I was in it’s make up. Sure the #5 spot is a concern and Bruney is not right, but other than that there is a lot to like!

    John - YF August 11, 2009, 10:20 pm
  • Bruney has lost the lights-out form he had at the beginning of the season, but he’s still useful. I also wish Hughes were in the rotation, but it’s a moot point.

    doug YF August 11, 2009, 10:31 pm
  • Ibelieve that is the 3rd straight night in which they have solo-homered back-to-back in order to go from one-run down to one-run up. And I’m not sure but I think 6 different guys have been in on those 6 HRs (need to double-check the latter). If it’s not an (admittedly weird) record, it must be close. Regardless, it is cool.

    IronHorse August 11, 2009, 11:03 pm
  • just back from the game…let me echo above statements. I love this team. Hope they can keep rolling.

    sam-YF August 11, 2009, 11:11 pm
  • So my facts are off but only slightly. This was the 3rd straight night in which the Yanks tied or took the lead via back-to-back solo HRs and these 6 HRs were hit by 6 different players: Damon + Teixeira vs. Boston in the 8th on Sunday to go from down one to up one; Cano + Hairston in the 4th last night to go from two down to tied against Toronto; Matsui + Posada in the 8th tonight to go from one down to one up vs. Toronto.
    In addition to being very cool it is also a minor reflection of how incredibly balanced this line-up is.

  • “In addition to being very cool it is also a minor reflection of how incredibly balanced this line-up is.”
    no, it’s a reflection of the tiny dimensions of the new ys, and the little known theory that the yankees turn on a giant fan blowing out toward right field when they are up to bat…

    dc August 12, 2009, 10:56 am
  • Yes, or that…

    IronHorse August 12, 2009, 11:18 am
  • someone had to set the record straight IH, before you went off all half-cocked about the yankee lineup actually earning the somewhat inconsistent, yet potent at times, offensive success they’ve enjoyed this season ;)

    dc August 12, 2009, 11:34 am
  • Thanks for keeping me in line dc – I needed that :o)
