Game 97: Not You Again!

New, comments

Sean O'Sullivan last pitched on Tuesday, defeating the Yankees 10-2 as a member of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Now he looks for his second straight victory in his second straight game against the Yankees, this time as a member of the Kansas City Royals.

Last time out O'Sullivan went six innings, giving up two hits and two runs. One of the runs given up was on a historic home run, Nick Swisher's 150th home run.

Ok, not so historic, but a good segue! Alex Rodriguez will try for his 600th home run once again today. Personally, I just want him to get it in a Yankees victory. I know some people want him to hit it at home, some on his birthday, some at 7:43 on a Tuesday night (ok exaggerating a bit), but if the Yankees win and he hits it, I don't care about the situation.

Sorry for the lack of pitchers stats, Sean O'Sullivan's page is having technical difficulties.
