Another Series Win

July 7, 2009 – 11:31 am

Toronto 7, NYY 6. You kinda had a feeling after the first couple of innings with the blown calls by the umps and the great plays the Jays were making in the outfield that this one wasn’t going to turn out well. About the only hope was that “good” Andy Pettitte would show up, and that wasn’t to be. So the Yankees had to settle for taking 3-of-4 from Toronto, which is yet another series win, which is what it’s all about. That makes four series wins in a row, with a 10-3 record. So file this one under “you can’t win ’em all” and head on to Minnesota.

Good News/Bad News Dept: Eric Henske got off to a good start in his Yankee debut with a great catch of a line drive in the first inning, and following that up by going 2-for-4 with a home run. Unfortunately, he also swung at ball four twice in the ninth which would have put the tying run on second with Johnny Damon coming up. Oh well. On the bad news side, Brian Bruney had another rough outing, giving up two doubles and a walk in just 0.2 innings. He’s still not back to his pre-injury form, not even close for that matter. So you can pretty much bet Phil Hughes isn’t going to be leaving the bullpen anytime soon, not until Bruney proves himself. Either that, or until the Yankees bring in help from the outside, like say Huston Street.
