Kevin Youkilis coming back, and the bats of Vernon Wells and Travis Hafner cooling off, we're punch-less. Nothing, Nada. In short... we suck. What happened?
Last night we had a race against Mother Nature...and Mother Nature and the Red Sox won. Rain shortened the game and the Red Sox scored 3 and they actually only needed 1 because we put up a big goose egg against a division rival. Man, I hate that.
Hiroki Kuroda went 5.1 innings last night, he gave up 8 hits and 3 runs. He also gave up 2 home runs and that's what killed us. But let's face it, being down by 3 is something the Yankees should have come back from. The Yankees left 2 on base, partially because they couldn't get on base and Oh, just so you know, Mark Teixeira struck out twice last night. Robinson Cano was the only one who worked a walk. Sure, I guess you could suggest the Red Sox pitching was good, but how about the Yankee bats were just plain bad?
Not much more to say here... it was a bad night. Too many of these are starting to annoy me. Don't make me angry... you wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
Final Score: Red Sox 3 - Yankees 0.
Andy Pettitte is back today... hopefully he can stop the bleeding. Can he hit too?
