Oakland 3, NYY 2

July 21, 2012 – 9:26 am

Not much you can do when the opposing pitcher puts on a pitching clinic like Oakland’s Tommy Milone did. 71% of his pitches were strikes, 88% of first pitches were strikes, he was ahead in the count 65% of the time, and behind on only 10 pitches (9%). He had total control over all his pitches — of 10 K’s, 5 came on fastballs, 4 on changeups, and one on a curveball. That’s what they call “command and control”. About all the Yankees can do is tip their hat and move on.
