Posada Lifts Yanks over Jays in 12

Saturday, July 4, 2009

Blue Jays 5 10 0
Yankees 6 12 0

WP: Tomko...yes Tomko(1-2)
LP: Camp (0-4)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Jorge Posada. He hit a solo home run to give them a lead in the 5th and he got the game-winning single in the bottom of the 12th.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Posada's walk-off RBI single. It brings the Yankees now one game behind the Red Sox.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Johnny Damon's home run in the 7th inning to tie the game. It was a "Yankee Stadium Home Run" so you know Halladay is not going to be too fond the new Yankee Stadium, but nonetheless, it put the Yankees back in the game and gave them a chance to win.

"This is a corny question, but..."
"We don't want to make any speculations, but say Wang goes on the DL, do the Yankees bring Hughes back into the rotation, or do they have somebody else fill the void."-he really has no idea what the word "speculate" means.


  • If we had a category for Dumba$$ of the Game, it would go to Robinson Cano. He went 0-6 and bunted on a 3-0 count. That bunt resulted in getting the lead runner out at third. It was also in the bottom of the 12th. AWFUL! He is also 0 for his last 20 with RISP.
  • Wang left the game with a strained right shoulder. Should he go on the DL the Yankees would need someone to fill his spot. Hughes hasn't pitched more than 2 innings in a good 3-4 weeks, and Aceves usually burns out around 45-50 pitches. What they can do is possibly call up someone such as Sergio Mitre from AAA.

I'll be at the game tommorow, pending if Jim has work, their may not be an in-game thread.

See Ya!
