THE YANKEES UNLUCKY 18
Hiroki Kuroda went 8 innings and got screwed. He pitched real well. He gave up 2 hits, 2 runs and struck out 3. David Robertson, Boone Logan, Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren, Preston Claiborne and Mariano Rivera followed and in the end, Claiborne got the loss.
On the the hitting front, Robinson Cano hit a 2 run homer in the 1st inning scoring Brett Gardner. That was it. The rest of the game it was goose eggs. Vernon Wells went 0-8.. you read that right. Kevin Youkilis went 0-7. Travis Hafner, 0-8. Seriously. Can someone say WTF? No need... I just did.
On the flip side, Ichiro, Cano and Gardner each had hits, Gardner has 2, the others had 3 each. Bottom line, it wasn't a great showing, but I guess you tip your cap to the A's pitching. Overall, the pitching on both ends was great, but in the end, a walk off in the 18th ended it when Nate Freiman singled in John Jaso.
Final: Athletics 3 - Yankees 2.
Now I go to bed pissed... see how that happens?
