Blue Jays 16, Yankees 7

Sigh

The Toronto Blue Jays defeated the New York Yankees tonight 16-7, thanks in part to an eight run first inning off of Yankees starter Bartolo Colon, and the awful pitching of Sergio Mitre.

Colon pitched two thirds of an inning, surrendering six hits and eight runs, only three of which were earned. Colon certainly did not impress, but he was not as bad as the box score suggests. Colon looked slightly injured at various points in the first, so we should see if that means anything.

Andruw Jones homered twice to help the Yankees cut the deficit to two runs, but the Yankees then brought in Sergio Mitre.

Mitre leaves me speechless. It perplexes me that the Yankees allow him on their roster. Not just their roster, but the AAA, or even AA roster. That he pitched in a four run ballgame in the seventh inning is awful.

Hector Noesi, on the other hand, was terrific, only allowing two runs over three and a third innings pitched.

Still, it was not enough, as the Yankees could not come back from the first inning debacle. This is a game I want to forget quickly.
