Despite making Jered Weaver throw more than 50 pitches over the first two innings, the Yankees let Weaver off the hook, as he ultimately tossed seven innings of two-run ball en route to a 3-2 Angels victory. This one looked like it might get out of hand early, as Ivan Nova gave up two first-inning runs, but to his credit he settled down and only allowed one more run — unfortunately what would end up being the game-winner – before departing after six.
Looks like I picked as good a game as any to call it a night on the early side — ordinarily the idea of shutting an in-progress Yankee game off would be unthinkable, but between innumerable sleepless nights of late combined with the slow nature of the game, I didn’t feel like staying up until what I imagined would be around 1:30am only to see the Yankees lose, which I knew they would. Not that I don’t have confidence in the team, but they just always seem to lose in Anaheim, and given that I shut the game off after the Bombers tied it in the top of the 4th inning and the Yankees, rather incredibly, went hitless the rest of the game — I’m feeling pretty good about my decision right now.
The loss dropped the Yankees to 1-7 on Fridays in 2011, which doesn’t mean anything, though it’s pretty bizarre that they keep losing series openers. Anyway, fortunately CC Sabathia‘s on the hill tonight to right the ship, against Ervin Santana, as Dan Haren was (thankfully) scratched.
