NY Mets 6, NYY 4

June 23, 2012 – 11:14 am

When the pitching does a no-show, it’s a pretty sure bet the Yankees will lose given their lack of any kind of effective offense — and that’s exactly what happened last night. Andy Pettitte finally looked human for just one inning, but a 0-5 deficit after the first inning is pretty much a guaranteed L for this team. The good news is that Pettitte settled down and over the next 6 innings his line was 2H 0R 0BB 6K, so it would seem that the first inning was a fluke, and there’s no cause for concern here.

Offensively, it was yet another typical night. All four runs came via the home run, and as seems to always be the case, two of those were solo shots. And of course, it was yet another oh-fer with RISP, this time 0-for-4. At what point do we accept that this is just the norm for this team rather than some odd aberration which is going to get corrected with a long streak of hitting .300+ with RISP?
