BIG FAT SPLIT: GAME 2
Game 2 goes to the Pirates today. If you ask any ballplayer how they feel about a double header, they of course want to win both, but the most common answer is usually, "There is usually a split." I don't this to be a fact, but I did hear John Sterling rambling about this today and that's what he said... so it must be true. If you could see my face right now, you see a face of sarcasm.
Anyway, in game 2, Vidal Nuno started. He went 6 giving up 3 runs. He was followed by Alfredo Aceves who gave up another run and ended up getting the loss today and Matt Thornton who gave up the 5th run for the Bucs.
The Yankee scoring went as follows:
In the bottom of the second, John Ryan Murphy singled and knocked in Yangervis Solarte. Brendan Ryan, in for Jeter in Game 2, singled knocking in Murphy shortly after.
In the bottom of the 6th, Yangervis Solarte homered and that was all she wrote for New York.
The worst play of the game had to be Brett Gardner cranking a triple in the first, only to be thrown out by "pick off" by Chris Stewart who threw down and Gardy was too far down the line to get back in time. The guy in back of me at the Stadium yelled, "Where the hell does he think he's freakin' going?" That's New York for ya.
Final Game 2: Pirates 5 - Yankees 3
So yeah, while you usually split a double header, according to John Sterling... you shouldn't. You need to win both... especially if you're home, but whatever, that's baseball I guess, you never can predict it... right John?
