Game 38: Swept.
ARE YOU SH!TTING ME?!
This is the first time the Yankees have lost five games in a row since May 2 – May 7, 2009. Please don’t compare this team to that team, because that team could actually hit the ball. Yeah we got five runs tonight, but it helps if your pitching doesn’t give up more runs than you can score. Our pitching hadn’t been an issue until recently, now I’m beginning to wonder if the worm isn’t turning. I know we had been getting lucky with some pretty mediocre pitchers, but I hope this isn’t the sign of things to come. That is going to make for a long summer in NY.
So far we’ve played six games against Boston and won only one of them. That pains me just to type it out, much less think about it. I can only hope that this disastrous series serves as a wake-up call of sorts for the team, and they pull their heads out of their butts and start playing winning baseball. Grandy went 1-4 with 2 RBI, Mark went 2-5 with an RBI, and Andruw Jones (who left the game) went 1-3 with an RBI. Other than that, our offense was basically…..well, nothing.
Can we please just move on from this horrible series and start winning again? You know, scoring more runs than the opposition in a minimum of 9 innings? Good times, good times.
