NYY 6, Seattle 2

Monday, August 6th, 2012

And we're back to winning series, always a good thing. This one worked out exactly like you would draw it up before the game -- Freddy Garcia pitched well enough to get through 5 innings and turn over a lead to the bullpen, and then the Yankee offense tacked ...

Boston 9, NYY 5

Sunday, July 8th, 2012

Given that the overall probability of a visitor sweeping a double-header is about 20%, you can't get too upset about losing this one. And given that everyone else in the East also lost (well, with the obvious exception of Boston), no real damage was done. That said, though, a couple ...

NYY 11, LA Angels 5

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Weird outing from Ivan Nova. He dominated the 3-5 hitters, holding them to 1-for-9 with 4 Ks. But then the bottom of the order went 5-for-7 with 2 BBs and scored 4 runs. And in the fifth, after being handed a seven run lead, he walks the ...

NYY 6, Baltimore 4

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

What sweet redemption for Nick Swisher! With one out and a man on third in the 8th, he missed an opportunity to drive in the go-ahead run by taking a called third strike. And it was no fault of his, the ball was well outside the plate. And what's the ...

The Offense To The Rescue

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

NYY 22, Oakland 9. Oakland came in to this series 13 games below .500 while the Yankees were 29 games above .500. That works out to the A's being 21 games behind the Yankees. And yet half-way through this game, the Yankees were down 7-2 and well on their ...

First!

Saturday, August 6th, 2011

NYY 3, Boston 2. You knows things are going right when 38-year old Bartolo Colon, making his first August start since 2005, out duels Yankee killer Jon Lester. Of course Colon got a lot of help from the bullpen, which is shaping up to be the best in the AL ...

Freddy Follows Up Bartolo Nicely

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

NYY 4, Tampa Bay 0. Just as Bartolo Colon did Tuesday, Freddy Garcia bounced back from a bad previous start, even one-upping Colon with a masterful 6.2 inning shutout. Yes, he did give up eight hits, but as long as you are also striking out seven and not walking anyone, ...
