NYY 10, Minnesota 4

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Nothing like playing a series against the team with the second worst pitching in the league (Twins R/G is 4.65, with only Houston being worse) to get the offense going. And don't look now, but Vernon Wells is actually hitting .316 over the last 10 games -- we'll see if ...

NYY 3, Seattle 1

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

Yet another no show for the offense (so what else is new, hey?), but this time Andy Pettitte was back in form, throwing 7.1 innings of 3-hit 1-run ball, and that's what it takes these days for the Yankees to win. I don't think you can understate how important a ...

NYY 3, Kansas City 2

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

Nice to see Andy Pettitte with a good rebound after a couple of bad outings. It can't be said enough that ultimately this team is all about the pitching, and they need solid, reliable starts out of each of the first four positions in the rotation. Also nice to see ...

Oakland 5, NYY 4

Sunday, May 5th, 2013

That's back-to-back poor starts for Andy Pettitte, which is a bit worrisome, but still it was a 7-3 homestand, plus the Townies were in the process of getting swept by Texas, so inspite of the series loss, the Yankees actually gained a game in the standings. Hard to complain. Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E SO BB Athletics 0 0 1 1 2 0 0 1 0 5 7 0 5 4 Yankees 0 0 1 0 0 3 0 0 0 4 9 1 8 4 WP: S. ...

NYY 9, Toronto 4

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

Man was this retro-Yankees at their best. This latest edition of the Bronx Bombers had 9 of 13 hits go for extra bases, three of those home runs. This team that the pundits lamented had no power at all because of the off-season losses and the injuries is now leading ...

NYY 4, Boston 2

Friday, April 5th, 2013

There you go. The Battle Cat goes eight innings allowing just one run, exactly what this year's Yankees need in order to put up a W. And so a season opening sweep to the hated Red Sox is avoided. See, it ain't going to be that bad! Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E SO BB Red Sox 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 2 9 0 4 2 Yankees 0 2 1 0 0 0 1 0 X 4 8 0 9 4 WP: A. Pettitte ...

NYY 6, Minnesota 3

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

Two games is clearly still in very small sample size territory, but Andy Pettitte does indeed look like he's back to the same form he was in before the ankle injury. He's still putting way too many men on base, but somehow with Pettitte on the mound this never ...

NYY 4, Toronto 2

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

You got to like the five shutout innings from Andy Pettitte, even if he wasn't facing much more then a AAA lineup. It's going to be pitching that determines how far this team makes it in the next month, and having Pettitte back and pitching close to where he ...

NY Mets 6, NYY 4

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

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 ...

NYY 5, NY Mets 4

Sunday, June 10th, 2012

You know things are starting to go your way when the really ugly games start falling your way. When the Yankees weren't trying to beat themselves with Swisher's WTF-are-you-thinking bunt attempt in the second and Soriano's playing-with-fire-will-inevitably-get-you-burned blown save in the ninth, the Mets were trying to give them ...
