The Game That Wouldn't End ...Yankees 11 Braves 7

Thursday, June 25, 2009

Yankees 11 16 1
Braves 7 13 3

WP: Aceves (5-1)
LP: Lowe (7-6)
S: Rivera (17)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Alex Rodriguez. Could he finally be out of his slump? He went 3-5 with 4 RBIs and a home-run today.

PLAY OF THE GAME: There was a lot of shoddy defense early on...but Mark Teixeira's diving catch in the eigth inning to rob Garret Anderson of a single was a "pretty play."

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: A-Rod's home-run. The home run put the Yankees up 2-0 in the first inning and established that he, alogn with the rest of the team, have finally awaken.


  • Everyday there is a new pitcher who wants to be the most frustrating to watch. AndyPettitte had an 8-1 lead and was only able to pitch 3.2 innnings. The rotation has not been awful of late, but they need to establish some consistency.
  • Mark Teixeira was the only Yankee not to get a hit tonight. Hopefully if A-Rod is officially no longer slumping, he will start getting better pitches to hit and heat up again.
  • Derek Jeter reached base 6 times and scored 4 runs. Probably the runner-up for player of the game.
  • After losing the series to the Natinals and Marlins, Yankees win 2 out of 3 against the Braves.
  • A-Rod said he would let Reggie Jackson know he tied him tonight. If they are as close as it appears, Reggie will probably not say anything publicly, but I just can't imagine him being happy with a known steroid user tying and passing his accomplishment he earned without any help from PEDs.
  • Did Derek Lowe think he was still on the Red Sox. Did the Yankees think he was still on the Red Sox? I say this because this game finished jsut short of 4 hours, which is the norm in a Yanks-Sox series.

Tommorow: Yankees at Mets 7:05 ET Shea Field.

Sabathia (5-4, 3.71) vs Pelfrey (5-2, 4.74)
