Game 114: Afternoon Delight.

Apparently I’d completely forgotten that this was a 4-game series, because I thought last night’s game was the rubber match.  Either way, winning the series, was important, and we did it.  The only thing I dislike about afternoon games is that I can’t listen to them — I can only listen to night games or games over the weekend.

Our pitching was superb this series, and this afternoon was no different.  Shane Greene has been one of the many call-ups, acquisitions, and bullpen shifts we’ve had this season, and he demonstrated today that he can be very, very dominant on the mound.  His final line was 8.0 IP, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K.  David Robertson came in during the 9th and got his 31st save for the effort.  Can’t say much more about that.

Can’t say much about the offense, either.  We managed only one run on nine hits.  Everyone in the lineup got at least a hit, except Francisco Cervelli, and Ichiro went 2-3, the only player to get more than one.  Our lone run came from Stephen Drew, who made up for his sloppy defense last night by hitting an RBI double in the 4th.  Let’s hope that Toronto loses again tonight, so we can pull ourselves even with them, then start to pull away during the next series.
