This one just wasn't meant to be. I have to think that 2 hour, 9 minute rain delays can interrupt the flow of the game just a bit.
The Yankees bullpen came back from the "recess" to pick up some of the slack for Dustin Moseley (he put up a less than stellar 4.1 innings, 4 earned runs) by not allowing any baserunners once play resumed. Unfortunately, the Royals bullpen was nearly effective, allow just 3 hits and a walk, so no runs were scored by anybody in the final 4+ innings of the game.
Play Of The Game: for the Yankees, it was Lance Berkman's 3rd inning double; for the Royals, it was Yuniesky Betancourt's 2nd inning double.
Quote Of The Game: goes to long time listener's comment in response to Chad Gaudin and George Bush/Al Gore:
I hope Chad doesn’t leave one hanging.
