You can't win them all. Not even Masahiro Tanaka can.
Last night he had a rare, rough outing. No biggie... don't let it happen again.
The Indians had 10 hits and scored 5 runs off of the Golden child, who just didn't seem right all night. He went 6.2 innings, only had 5 strikeouts and was relieved by Matt Thornton and Shawn Kelley who did a pretty good job at least keeping the Yankees in the game. The problem though, and this has been a problem all along, was out offense coming back and winning.
The Yankees had 4 hits in Cleveland last night. We started out like this... Mark Teixeira singled after the ball deflected off of Chris Dickerson's glove. Brett Gardner scored. Then, Brian McCann struck out, but when there was a throwing error by Yan Gomes, Jacoby Ellsbury came around to score. In the second, Gardy grounded out, but Ichiro scored.
Then came the bottom of the 6th. It was that inning that Nick Swisher homered and put the Indians ahead 4-3. They would score 1 more. I like seeing Swish... but not like that.
Not a great game at all for the Yanks.
Final: Indians 5 - Yankees 3
Whatever. Try to forget it and move on...
