My reaction to tonight’s game:
And this isn’t going to be a long, drawn out, verbose recap because, honestly, I’m really not in the mood to rehash the whole game.
But here’s what you need to know: CC Sabathia was cruising, he even took a no-hitter bid into the sixth and then BAM! He gives up three runs in the sixth and gave up a solo shot in the seventh to Nate McClouth and the Yankees lost the game.
This kind of game is the most frustrating one to sit through because it looks like everything is going right and then suddenly the wheels fall off. The Yankees scored first, Robinson Cano may be coming out of his funk (he finished 3-5 with an RBI) and even Vernon Wells had an RBI. The Yankee offense had 11 hits. 11! And the Orioles only had five but they made the most of those five hits.
I guess a positive is that Joba Chamberlain came in and pitched a scoreless eighth inning, didn’t give up a hit and had one strikeout.
