That's it Alex, lean on the bat. Not like you're doing anything else with it.

Last night marked the 4th time this season that the Yankees' pitching and defense held the opposition to 3 runs or less and still lost. They are 22-4 in such games.

They also fell to 6-10 in one run games.

None of that is incredible about last night's game.

Jered Weaver threw 27 pitches in the first inning.

He threw 26 pitches in the second inning.

He threw 10 pitches in the third inning.

He threw 26 pitches in the fourth inning, to bring his total to 89.

He threw 12 pitches in the fifth inning; total 101.

6 pitches in the 6th inning thanks to one pitch ABs by Cano and Martin.

12 pitches in the 7th inning, to bring his total to 119.

Sometimes, a guy makes pitches and you tip your cap.

But sometimes, you bench your .278/.319/.505 2B whose walk rate has collapsed from 8.2% last season to a near career low 3.9%.
