A Good Routine To Be In

April 13, 2010 – 10:56 pm

NYY 7, Los Angeles 5. Andy Pettitte pitched another gem and the Yankees got good hitting all up and down the lineup — ho-hum, what else is new? Pettitte has obviously picked up right where he left off last year during the post-season, this time throwing six innings of shut out ball, giving up just five hits (all singles) and striking out six. Offensively five Yankees had a multiple hit game, they had at least one hit in every inning, and scored in five of eight innings. About the only negative for the entire game was a terrible outing for David Robertson. In the ninth after giving up two infield hits, and another line drive single, he threw a lazy fastball right down the middle and Bobby Abreu put it in the right field bleachers for a grand slam. But that’s the way it goes with middle relievers — and that’s why they are middle relievers. Oh well, at least this time the Yankees had a big enough lead that it was inconsequential.
