Recap of 7/15/07

Yankees- 7
Devil Rays- 6

  • I missed yesterday's game and most of today's game
  • Jeter was 2-4 with the game winning single and a HR
  • Nieves actually had an RBI double, shocking isn't it?
  • Phillips had a great day going 2-3 with a triple. He also made a key diving play to save the game in the 8th
  • In the big 8th inning rally A-Rod had a double
  • Mussina was okay pitching 6 innings of 3 run ball but his K/BB was 0-2
  • Villone pitched terribly giving up 2 runs in 2/3 innnings. He`s a waste of a roster spot
  • Vizcaino got out of a jam facing one batter, getting him out, and cleaning up Villone's mess
  • Rivera proved that he is still one of the best closers in the game this series. He gave up a bloop base hit to lead off the 9th, the next guy reached on catchers interference, only to get the next guy to GIDP and make Carlos Pena pop out to win the game
  • Farnsworthless truly earned his nickname today. He gave up one run, 2 doubles, got one guy to pop out, and allowed a LD that was miraculously turned into a DP by Andy Phillips.
  • The Yankees are now nine games behind Cleveland in the WC and nine games behind Boston in the division so they`ve gained ground this series. This was a pretty good series all things considered.
