Game 18: Guess what time it is again?

Isn’t he just the cutest?  He always makes an appearance when the Yankees snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and come from behind late in the game, or win in extras — like yesterday.  Apologies for the late write-up; I’ve been suffering from a bit of a stomach bug the last couple days, and my energy was at an all-time low yesterday.  Yeesh.  I’m better now, though. 

Freddy Garcia had a great start, and really the last couple starts has shown himself to be quite an asset to this rotation.  His final line was 6 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 7 K.  Our bullpen on the other hand, didn’t have the best of afternoons.  Joba came in for the 7th, and gave up two runs to cut our lead to only one, and then Mo came in for the 9th and gave up the tying run to Brian Roberts.  Fortunately Andino was out at the plate, otherwise the Orioles would have won the game 4-3.  I know Mo gets the yips every April, so I’m not worried…..but it’s still shocking to see anyway.  Thankfully our offense came through in the end. 

Speaking of the offense, we scored two runs in the 1st inning, one run in the 5th inning, and then didn’t score again until the 11th inning.  Now that’s a problem.  Of course, coming off a 15-run game the previous night, I wasn’t expecting 16 runs, but I was hoping for more of a sustained offensive effort than that.  A couple players had very nice days at the plate; Derek (4-6, RBI) and Grandy (3-5, 3 RBI).  We also got RBIs from Alex and Russell Martin.  Derek’s four hits brings him to 2,945 hits total, or just 55 away from 3,000.  Keep pluggin’ along, Jetes.  I know you’re not having the best year, but we’re behind you anyway.
