Before I start the actual recap of this craptacular* game, here are a few of stats you can chew on for a while:
- The Yankees are 3-8 over their last 11 games.
- All eight losses have been by two runs or less and six have been by one run.
- The Yankees’ last nine losses have been by a combined 12 runs.
Fun, right? So, let’s get on with the post mortem, shall we?
To be honest, I don’t even know how to start this. Tonight was the third night in a row the Yankees have come up short in an attempt to comeback and win a game. And sometimes I think losses like this are much more frustrating than blow outs because at least your team is out of it and doesn’t tease you with a lead off double in the ninth inning which could be the potential tying run but that doesn’t score.
I’m sorry, where was I?
