Yeah, where to start with this one, huh? The most frustrating part of the night may’ve been CC Sabathia‘s non-CC like performance. He walked a season high 4 and just seemed off all night. He wasn’t bad, but when it’s CC vs. Baltimore, you just assume certain things. Anyway, it’s worth noting that one of CC’s runs should definitely be charged to Robinson Cano, who made what was probably the most frustrating play of the night (to that point). In the bottom of the sixth, Cano bobbled a ball off the bat of J.J. Hardy and tried to toss the ball to second to get a force out. However, the toss was weak and Robert Andino beat it, allowing a run to score and giving Hardy a cheap RBI. That gave Baltimore a 4-0 lead. The very next inning, Chris Stewart one-upped Cano’s play with a defensive miscue of his own. Freddy Garcia relieved Sabathia and started off the inning by giving up a single to Adam Jones. Jones stole second “successfully” (replay showed he was out thanks to a nice throw by Stewart and a good tag by Derek Jeter). Matt Weiters was retired on a damn fine play by Cano (to his right, throw across his body, routine stuff for him, really) and then Garcia struck out Wilson Betemit. Nick Johnson ended the inning on a solid liner to center, but not before Chris Stewart couldn’t handle a pitch from Garcia. That passed ball, Stewart’s second of the game, allowed Adam Jones to come home and make the game 5-2 (Curtis Granderson put the Yankees on the board with a 2 run homer to the first row in left field in the top of the inning).
At the plate, Nick Swisher wins the “Pull my damn hair out” award. He stung the ball four times, hitting it hard every time he got up, but had no hits to show for it. The Luck Dragon was not on Nick’s side tonight. Anyway, this game sucked a lot but the Yanks get to go do it again tomorrow night vs. Toronto. Move on and take it out on the Jays.
