So, does anyone else wish that Ivan Nova could have gone down to the Minors again this season to straighten himself out?
Just me? Okay, then.
The game started off well when Derek Jeter jumped on Francisco Liriano‘s first pitch offering and sent it screaming into the left field seats. It was his 12th home run of the season and his 168th hit of the season. He passed Eddie Murray for 11th on the All-Time hit list. And at 3,256 is now 1,000 hits away from Pete Rose‘s record.
And that was pretty much the best thing about the game.
The Yankees did end up scoring another run off Liriano in the first to make it 2-0 and then couldn’t do anything until the seventh when by that time, the White Sox scored six unanswered runs, the big blow being a grand slam off the bat of Kevin Youkilis in the fifth inning.
Ivan Nova was not good. He gave up six runs on seven hits in six innings of work. He struck out three, walked two and gave up the slam to Youkilis and a solo home run to Paul Konerko in the fourth.
And the Yankee hitter who had the best night was none other than Russell Martin who finished 2-4 with home run and an RBI. He’s still batting under .200, sitting at .196.
Tomorrow the Yankees will look to avoid the sweep with Phil Hughes on the mound.
