This was a brutal game to watch. Who can remember when the Yanks had 9-3 and 10-4 leads and the game looked like a laugher? CC quickly squandered that those leads in his second straight poor outing, followed by an absolute implosion of the bullpen. D-Rob, Mitre, Marte and Joba combined to record just three outs... yet allowed seven runs between those outs: HBP, fly-out, single, walk, fly-out, single, walk, double, double, single, K. That seventh inning was the difference in the game that would have guaranteed at least a split in this four-game series.
Cleveland went a ridiculous 8-14 with RISP while the 'Bombers' went a respectable 5-13.
David Huff was hit on the head by a line drive from the bat of A-Rod. He hit the ground and didn't get up for minutes until he was finally carried off on a stretcher. A CAT Scan came back negative and he was released from the hospital. A-Rod tried to pay him a visit there but learned en route that he'd returned to the Stadium.
This is a game to just try to forget about and look ahead to tomorrow's match.
Play of the Game: Jason Donald's two out, two-run double off Joba in the seventh (-32%) that put Cleveland ahead.
Comment of the Game: Lord Duggan, for his jab at Joe West. I despise West, so any comments about him find a soft spot in my heart.
