Recap of Game 92


The Yankees won a fantastic game yesterday. Pettitte and Halladay were both scored off once in the first inning. Pettitte had exactly the kind of game he needed to have. A-Rod's had his 90th RBI in the 1st. Robinson Cano had the opportunity to break the game open in the first when he came up with two outs and the bases loaded but he grounded out. After that Halladay and Pettitte matched each other through seven innings. Pettitte had 126 pitches. Krazey Kyle Farnsworthless came in for the 8th inning and allowed a lead off single. Next he tried a pickoff with the runner still on the base and threw it away letting him take second. He then gave up the lead on a double but the run wasn't even charged to Farnsworth because of the pickoff error. In the bottom of the 8th the Yankees started a two out rally but Cano struck out to end the 8th. Brian Bruney pitched a scoreless 9th and gave the Yankees a chance to tie it up in the bottom of the 9th. Phillips led off the inning with a single and Miguel Cairo was used as a pinch runner. Cairo stole second. Johnny Damon hit a GB to the second baseman but it got past him. Bowa waved Cairo home and he was out on a collision. Bowa himself was standing almost next to the umpire by the time Cairo hit the catcher. Damon moved to second on the throw. The Yankees continued with their aggresive play and Damon stole third. Melky Cabrera walked. Then Damon scored on a balk by Jeremy Accardo. Abreu and Jeter went quietly. Vizcaino pitched a scoreless 10th. In the bottom of the 10th A-Rod led off by getting hit. He then went to second on a passed ball. Matsui missed a walk off HR by about a couple feet and worked the count to 3-2 before striking out. Posada was walked intentionally and Cano got another chance to win the game. On the first pitch he saw he lined a single to LF past the LF'er to win the game.
