Game 133: Yankees at Orioles

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Lineups from the Big Man Upstairs. You know, upstairs, in the press box.

YANKEES (84-48)
Jeter SS
Damon LF
Swisher 1B
Rodriguez 3B
Matsui DH
Cano 2B
Cabrera CF
Hinske RF
Molina C

Pitching: LHP CC Sabathia (15-7, 3.56).

ORIOLES (54-79)
Roberts 2B
Izturis SS
Reimold LF
Markakis RF
Mora 3B
Wieters C
Scott DH
Wigginton 1B
Pie CF

Pitching: RHP Jason Berken (4-11, 6.33).

TIME/TV: 7:05, YES.

Correction: Last night I mistakenly said the Yankees Magic Number was 26, but I did not realize that 26 was the number before last night's game, so it is now 25.

Boys of Summer: Yankees during the first 81 games: 51-37, .580 winning percentage. The second half: 33-11, .750 winning percentage.

It was only a matter of time before Kay did the CC~Cy Young thing. It was just as bad as I thought it would be.

UPDATE 8:41: I've got the game on in the background and muted, but it seems like CC is gutting this one out without having his best stuff. 83 pitches and 1 run through 5 innings. Yanks need to help him with some hits.

UPDATE 9:15: A-Rod with the big single right there. You know he's feeling well when he goes back up the middle. One man on, no outs, don't stop now.

UPDATE 9:17: A-Rod gets a little greedy and guesses wrong with the lefty on the mound, it happens.

UPDATE 9:39: Bruney continues to struggle. He's pitching his way out of a chance to be on the postseason roster. At this point, he may have to be worried about having a job next year.
