Holiday in Toronto: Yanks Shutout by Halladay

Friday, September 4, 2009

Yankees 0 1 1
Blue Jays 6 10 0

WP: Halladay (14-8)
LP: Chamberlain (8-5)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: Roy Halladay. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and struck out 9 batters in a complete game shutout tonight.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Nothing spectacular in this one, so I'll just give it to Ramiro Pena for breaking up what seemed to be an inevitable no-hitter tonight.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: First inning error by Ramiro Pena, which extended the Blue Jays lead to 2-0 before Halladay even took the mound. At that point, it was already alot for the Yankees to comeback with Halladay pitching.


  • I'll be honest, I did not watch tonight's game so I can't really give you any analysis I saw out of the Yankees, or more specifically, Joba. I have no clue what to think about the way they're handling Joba. If this is there plan, hopefully it pays off, but I don't know if I can trust him pitching Game 4 of the ALCS. They change his approach every game and I feel like that is contributing to him being consistently inconsistent. We'll see what happens.
  • Thank goodness for September call-ups, because the Yankees bullpen will be burnt after this series.

That is it for today, tommorow Andy Pettitte takes the mound against Bret Cecil, maybe he can help give rest to the bullpen.

See Ya!
