Yankees 6- Rays 2

Wednesday, July 29, 2009


Yankees 6 12 0
Rays 2 6 1

WP: Chamberlain (7-2)
LP: Garza (7-8)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Duh, it's Joba Chamberlain. The right hander went 8 innings, and allowed only 3 hits and 2 walks, while shutting out the tough Rays lineup.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Mark Teixeira's catch of the line drive off the bat of Dioner Navaro to save a double down the line.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Robinson Cano's home run in the 6th inning that gave the Yankees a 3-0 lead, which was all that Joba needed.

  • There's no other way to say it, but right now, Brian Bruney sucks. He can't get people out consistently and tonight, he cost Mariano a night off.
  • Unlike Bruney, Joba Chamberlain is pitching as good as he ever has as a starter. Since the break, he has now allowed only 2 runs in 21.2 innings of work over his last 3 starts.
  • Oakland is beating Boston 8-5 in the bottom of the 8th, so if that score holds the Yankees will move 3.5 games ahead of the BoSox and 7.5 ahead of the Rays with 61 games left on the schedule.
