Two Gems Found Between The Folds: M’s-Yanks Gamer I

The Yankees played 18 innings of fantastic baseball yesterday, and came away with a split on the doubleheader in Cleveland necessitated by Mother Nature earlier this year, fitting in two games amidst flights between DIA, Hopkins, and JFK. Phelps, Logan, Claiborne, Nuno, and Warren pitched a fantastic 18 innings in which they allowed 1 run over 2 games, both played on a day that should have been a deserved day off. Phelps took the loss in the first game, but only because the law says someone has to, and Masterson certainly deserves congratulations for his 4-hit shutout.

Now the Yankees are back in the Bronx and not likely to be well rested, but hopefully fortified by their fantastic play. Felix Hernandez is on the mound for the Mariners, while the Yankees send CC to the bump, and Curtis Granderson rejoins the team. Awesome Mariner fans video anthem and lineups after the break.. Comment away.

Fantastic tribute to Dave Niehaus.

  • 1-2-3 first for CC…couple K’s.

    …and then Gardner runs the count full and hits a leadoff single.

  • Gardner steals 2nd and then Robbie walks…

    Punish him.

  • 1 pitch fly out for Vernon…and in steps…Curtis.

    Welcome back Grandy!

  • …and he promptly hits into a DP.

    Welcome back Curtis. K’s are less hurtful.

    Let Felix off the hook. Might not get another shot.

  • 1-out double for some scrub…

  • Busted play at first…inning continues. That could be bad. Very non-chalant play by both Overbay and CC.

    krueg May 14, 2013, 7:30 pm
  • K. No damage.

    Bottom 2nd coming up…

    krueg May 14, 2013, 7:31 pm
  • 2nd error…

    But Curtis can catch in LF, which is good.

    2 outs.

  • OH, and Felix had a 4 pitch, 45 second 2nd inning. Dialed in now.


    krueg May 14, 2013, 7:43 pm
  • 0-1.

    CC blinks first. No surprise there. Another shutout? 5th of the year?

    I’m not in the mood for this tonight. Later.

  • I thought that was gone. So did Cano. Still, tie game now with 2 on and Granderson up. Great job by the Yanks so far.

  • Bases loaded for Overbay. 1 out. Long fly ball away from the lead…come on Lyle!

    IronHorse - YF May 14, 2013, 9:53 pm
  • Great ABs tthis inning. Overbay runs it full with the sacks packed. Make him pay!!

    IronHorse - YF May 14, 2013, 9:56 pm
  • Don’t call it a comeback…


    Lyle for MVP!

    krueg May 14, 2013, 9:57 pm
  • Sac fly puts the yanks up. Great job by Overbay. Cue Roberston and Mo. Veterans don’t panic. Annd if there’s one thing the Yanks have, it’s a ton of veterans…

  • Romine is pretty horrible. Good thing there are about 3 other young catchers in the system…he can’t hit and is average at best defensively?

    That was a stupid, stupid mistake.

  • Come on Houdini!

    krueg May 14, 2013, 10:10 pm
  • K. Huge.

    krueg May 14, 2013, 10:10 pm
  • Robertson puts guys on 1st and 2nd before getting a K for the firstt out…

    IronHorse - YF May 14, 2013, 10:11 pm
  • Robertson is skirting disaster…

    IronHorse - YF May 14, 2013, 10:13 pm
  • Dumb luck on the line drive DP. We’ll take it!

    IronHorse - YF May 14, 2013, 10:15 pm
  • That DP was our season in a nutshell so far…

    Get rid of Romine. We need another catcher.

  • Enter Sandman.

  • 2 quick pop-outs for Mo.

    IronHorse - YF May 14, 2013, 10:27 pm
  • Mo breaking bats left and right. He is (still) ridiculous.

    IronHorse - YF May 14, 2013, 10:28 pm
  • That was fun.

    Mariano. Incredible.
