A Loss, But A Happy Night Nonetheless

Yanks Drop First to Jays

After splitting a four game set with the White Sox, the Yankees started a three game set against the Blue Jays. The game itself was pretty aggravating: the Yankees were sloppy and they left too many men on base in their 5-3 loss. Yet today, still, I am full of smiles.
Freddy Garcia toed the rubber for the Yanks last night, and he was not as dominant as he had been in his previous starts. The longball beat him. Garcia went 5 innings (he threw 101 stressful pitches in those 5 innings), and allowed 3 runs (homers buy Bautista and Arencibia) on 7 hits. Even though it wasn’t his best outing, I was proud of Garcia last night. He didn’t have his best stuff, but he found a way to grind it out and keep the team in the game. He left down 3-2.

Unfortunately, the bullpen let things get a little out of hand.
David Robertson relieved Garcia in the 6th, and right away I knew it wasn’t going to be a good inning. He walked the leadoff man, the speedy Rajai Davis. Sure enough, that inning was a disaster. I didn’t even know what was going on. I was halfway watching, halfway studying for my AP Psych exam I have to take on Monday. So what I saw were a few guys on base, and Robertson trying to catch Davis in a rundown, but he threw the ball into centerfield. By the end of that inning, it was 5-2 Jays.
The Yankees offense last night was 2/3 Robinson Cano, 1/3 Russell Martin. Russell Martin drove in Robinson Cano, who walked, with an RBI double in the 2nd. The other 2 runs were on solo homers by Robinson Cano. He has really been putting on a laser show of late!

This loss was annoying because the Yankees HAD so many chances to go ahead. But they were 0-8 with runners in scoring position, and left 11 men on base. Not the way to win, guys. Not at all.
So why am I happy?
I’ll give you a hint…

HE’S BACK!!!

Francisco Cervelli, my FAVORITE, has been activated off the DL. And I saw him in the dugout yesterday, sitting there, smiling, looking cute as always. His little footsie is all better – no longer broken. My Cervelli is back, and ready for action. 

Thanks to Gustavo Molina for filling in nicely for my Cervelli. Hope he enjoyed his little stint with the Yanks.

Cervelli’s not in the lineup today, but with so many games and no off days coming up, I expect to see his shining smile on the field really soon.

GO YANKS!

If it were any other team, I’d say yay for the Yanks, but I’m glad the Blue Birds won. They’re a team in the making.

FRANCISCO!!! Watching a lot of YES Network in my times of boredom, I developed a little affinity for him too. I really hope he gets the starting job eventually.
