Games 89-92: A split is better than nothing.
We started the series against the Blue Jays on the wrong foot, with both Bartolo Colon and Garcia pitching less than optimally. In Colon’s case, giving up 8 runs in the 1st inning is not a good portents of things to come. However in the latter two games, we got phenomenal pitching, with CC notching his 14th win of the season in typical CC fashion (8 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 3 BB, 8 K), and Phil Hughes getting his 1st win of the season after missing all of the 1st half (damn near) with injuries. His final line yesterday was 6 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, and 5 K. From someone just coming off the DL after 80+ games, who wouldn’t take that?
The offense wasn’t too shabby, though it was overshadowed by the craptacular pitching in the first two games. I hope that our offense and pitching can keep going, as we head into a series against the Rays, who are right behind us in the AL East standings.
LET’S GO YANKEES, LET’S GO!!
