Yanks Streak Ends At 8

Saturday, July 25, 2009

Athletics 6 9 0
Yankees 4 6 0

WP: Gonzalez (2-2)
LP: Pettitte (8-6)
S: Bailey (11)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Gio Gonzalez. The guy got shelled by the Twins his last start, but comes out today and didn't give up a hit for 4.2 innings. Overall he gave up 1 run on 2 hits over 6.2 innings pitched and struck out 6.

PLAY(s) OF THE GAME: There was lots of excellent defense by the Yankees. Any Pettitte's slide to field a ground ball and backhand flip to first to get an out is one. Then Brett Gardner making two consecutive catches as he was diving forward to make the catch in shallow center field.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Landon Powell's single off Alfredo Aceves in the top of the 7th inning. The hit broke a 1-1 tie and kept the inning going for the A's who scored 6 runs that inning.


  • Next time Girardi goes to take out a pitcher, no more Grady Little BS. Take him out if he doesn't look good. That proved to be costly.
  • Andy Pettitte pitched very well and effective for 6 innings today. That 7th inning was tough but of the 4 runs charged to him, 3 of those were due to Aceves not being able to escape the bases loaded jam Pettitte left him. If there is any positive you take from this, it is Andy Pettitte has looked a lot better his last 2 starts out, and they are going to need him to pitch well down the road.
  • Jeter and Teixeira both homered today, but it was not enough to pull off the comeback. Jeter's single in the fifth inning passed Ted Williams on the all-time list. Teixeira's HR was his 25th for the season, which leads the AL.
