Thursday was the perfect day for a game of baseball in the Bronx. A beautiful 70 degrees out, with just the minimal amount of wind. Really, it was just a beautiful day. Too bad I can't say the same of the game. Okay the game wasn't a complete disaster. It was just one of those games that seems to drag on endlessly.
Seattle wasted no time scoring on us. Starting with our old friend, Robinson Cano. He doubled on a line drive to Carlos Beltran, bringing in Stefen Romero. Jacoby Ellsbury answered back with his first home run as a Yankee in the bottom of the 1st. The tie was short lived though. In the 3rd, Cano grounds into a force out, bringing in Brad Miller to score. Seattle would score twice more in the 4th, before Brian McCann singles in the 6th, to drive in Alfonso Soriano.
Cano was met with another round of boos during his first at bat. I hope this doesn't become the norm when he comes to visit. I mean, it seems like a lot of wasted energy on a guy that is ultimately irrelevant to our success this season.
I don't know what else to say about this game, really. I want to pretend it was a good pitching match up, but it wasn't. Our offense fell asleep again. You've got to get those bats moving. Have to score runs to win games.
Final: Seattle 4 - Yankees 2
