CLEANING OUR CLOCK!
It's fascinating to me to watch the Yankees, who at one time suggested Alex Rodriguez was the devil, suddenly use his 2000th RBI as a promotional tool and shy away from the fact that the Orioles once again cleaned the Yankees clock.
Yup. The O's beat them 2 times in 2 days... amazing.That can't be ignored... I don't care about the milestone! I want Yankee wins!
Alex Rodriguez is breaking records like mad. Tonight was a big one, he passed 2000 RBIs with a 2 run home run. But even if you asked him these days what was more important, Alex Rodriguez would have said, "Beating the O's." It just didn't happen and I'm not sure why. We should be able to do it, but we're not.
CC Sabathia started for the Yanks. He went 5 innings, giving up 8 hits and 4 runs. Nothing unmanageable. Then came in Chris Martin who gave up 3 more, and then Sergio Santos... not much better than Esmil Rogers giving up an additional 2. Not quite sure why we're rolling the dice on Santos. There must be a reason somewhere. What's next, Sergio Mitre?
The Yankees 4 runs went like this:
In the first, Mark Teixeria singled knocking in 1. Then, Brian McCann doubled and Tex scored.
In the 6th, ARod hit his 2 run homer and tied the game up 4-4. That would be it for the Yanks. The O's would then turn it on and we'd lose by a large margin.
So why is this happening? It's 2 in a row in Camden Yards. Can we turn this terrible losing streak around? We'll have to see... maybe tomorrow.
Final: Orioles 9 - Yankees 4
