Bad Night in Seattle

Chacon couldn't find the plate, got behind, walked and hit batters and pitched the Yankees to an 8-3 loss.

The Yanks had a chance to break the game open in the first when they had the bases loaded and one out, but Bernie and Posada popped out to end the threat. Then in the second inning they had first and second and two outs and Matsui flied out to end that threat. After the second I knew we were in trouble. Usually when you let a rookie pitcher off the hook early in the game it comes back to bite you in the ass. Chacon melted down by giving up five runs in the second and three runs in the third and that was that.

Boston rallies against Tampa and we lose another game in the standings for the division title.
