Kuroda for the Yanks, Darvish for Texas. Comment away.
Cano doubles to lead off the 4th and Teix promptly K’s. Darvish doesn’t look dominant but he is certainly getttting K’s when he needs them. And down goes Swisher on 3 straight.
Gotta give it to Kuroda. He is keeping a tough lineup in check and keeping the Yanks very much in this. Yanks have had RISP with no outs in each of the last 2 innings. Time to break through??
Andrus can field.
Texas has a pretty stellar infield defense. Darvish working fast. Though they’re only down by 2 it feels like 10. Jeter up. Looking for another multi-hit night after bunting his way on in the 3rd…and he doubles down the 3rd base line. I love that guy.
Nice double, Captain.
Darvish killing Granderson with RISP tonight. Nothing…
Cano singles with one out. Followed by weak popout by Teix. Offense unable to string anything together tonight. Darvish only at 84 pitches. He has been impressive. 2 out thunder? Please???
Swish grounds to Darvish. Yanks off-balance all night. Blech
Kuroda works an easy 6th vs. The meat of their order. Impressive. Come on offense. Make it a game.
With the Ranger’s pen a comeback won’t be easy. This is the inning to scratch one or two off Darvish…
Or Ibanez could swing at a pitch a foot off the outside of the plate. Chavez up with one out.
Has he now K’ed everyone but Jeter?
I may have just jinxed Jeter. Down 0-2…
Down goes Jeter. Forget what I said about Darvish not looking dominant.
So Darvish K’ed every Yankee except Cano and Martin in 7 innings. Meanwhile Kuroda keeps dealing, thrilled I’m sure to be reminded what no run support feels like.
Kuroda chased with 2 outs in the 7th. Very well pitched game. But Darvish was better.
Far too many times our lineup is shut down…
FAR too many…
Granderson looks horrible vs. Darvish. K #10 on the night. A-Rod, you’re the next contestant…
Andrus plays a tough hop v nicely. 2 down. And Cano grounds out to Darvish. Great night for Yu. Horrible for me. Hughes is going to get brutalized tomorrow. Ugh. Good night.
