Definitely not the best game I`ve been to. It was a slow game and the crowd didn't really get into it until the 8th. Pettitte started today and was pretty bad. The Yankees are counting on him to do well and if he doesn't they`re not going to make the playoffs. Again, the bright spot was the bullpen. After Pettitte gave up 5 runs in 5 innings Bruney did very well in relief. He K'ed 4 in two shutout innings and walked none. Bruney`s been pretty good so far and might be part of the answer to the bullpen. Ohlendorf was okay giving up one run in his 2 innings. He K'ed one and walked none.
The offense continued to slump today. A-Rod had a good game and gave the Yankees an early lead by driving in Abreu with a double. However, they were shut down until the 8th inning. The Yanks loaded the bases with nobody out and ended up getting two runs out of it. It wasn't enough. The top of the lineup went down 1-2-3 in the 9th. I`m still not to worried about the offense but they did strand a lot of runners today and have been slumping lately.
