Tough go for the Yankees last night in the second game of this Second City weekend series. They didn’t pitch well and they didn’t hit much. Baseball games are hard to win when you don’t do those things.
Bryan Mitchell got the spot start and he showed flashes of the potential that’s always kept him on the Yankees’ top prospect lists. His fastball was lively and his curveball drew some swings and misses. He also gave up a lot of hard contact and the White Sox got to him for 4 runs in his 4 innings of work. Alexei Ramirez tagged him for a solo home run in the bottom of the 2nd, which is always embarrassing, and he set the stage for Melky Cabrera‘s 3-run homer in the 5th that basically put the game away.
