AP And AP: Yanks-Rocks Gamer II

Andy Pettitte was brilliant in his last start, and he had better stay that way as he faces Jeff Francis if the Yanks don’t shake the cobwebs off their bats and cleats. Meanwhile, Julian Tavarez is looking slick in the bottom of four while the Sox battery ran Buddy Carlyle off the field on a rail. The Yanks welcome back Andy Phillips for another shot at holding down first base, which gives one the pleasure of seeing two ballplayers each with a zero-average in the lineup, on the last day of Spring. Somebody do something inspiring.

  • You guys are really blowing up this gamer, take a log off the fire or you might pull a hammy.

  • I’m watching but can’t comment much as the little one is being quite a handful tonight. Looks like Pettitte has his stuff. Good thing, considering the bats are relatively quiet so far.

  • At least now you can’t say we’re not posting only because the Yanks are losing!
    Work’s in my way. I don’t like to stay this late. But gooooo Yankees!

  • Lar – Staying this late as in east coast time? Or are you on the west coast (that’s still be late, just not insane)?

  • Yankees caught a break on that play at home in the bottom of the sixth. Two great throws that inning; one by Melky, one by Hideki. Melky’s play, called properly, shows why he has to be in center. Hideki’s play, called improperly which saved a run, but was about as good of as he could be expected to make in that situation.

  • I think the Yankees don’t want to make the playoffs.

  • East coast, and just got home from the subway.
    Gah, this was a quick turnaround to a bah.

    Lar June 20, 2007, 11:32 pm
  • Wow, all with two outs.
    Grr. Bah.

  • It’s the Same Rockies team who take 2 out 3 three from Redsox. The Rockies who slaughtered Redsox pitching in Fenway park. They embrassed Schilling and Beckett. It was Beckett first loss if I mistaken.

  • Grr, ARod should be padding his stats. Ah well.

    Lar June 20, 2007, 11:38 pm
  • POOP

  • Things looked pretty interesting for awhile, then, *boom* out go the lights. WAKE UP, bats.

  • Pettite’s has been consistent starter for the Yankees so far this season. He deserved a bad outing like this one tonight. I’m sorry for Andy He’s been hit hard by bad luck this year. Pettite’s should have 8 wins by now if now for Yankees Offense falters and bullpen blowing leads for him.

  • should’ve, could’ve, would’ve…but doesnt.

  • I saw Andy pitch when the Yanks were in Seattle. I have to say, as a Red Sox fan, Andy is 100x more impressive in person than he is on TV. I was astounded with his presence, competitiveness and command. Don’t get me wrong, he’s good on TV, but he’s got intangibles that you don’t see…
