Yankees 6, Angels 5: Finally Some Runs!

Sorry for the late recap - a lot of pressure these days.

The Yankees overcame another shaky Freddy Garcia start today, defeating the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 6-5.

Garcia struggled, surrendering five runs over five innings of work. The Yankees bullpen, however, followed with four shutout innings of work.

The offense finally put together some runs, thanks to an RBI single by Eric Chavez in the second, a solo home run by Robinson Cano in the fourth, and a two-run home run by Curtis Granderson in the fifth. An error also allowed two more runs to score, including the eventual winning run.

The current state of the Yankees bullpen seems simple to me. When the best pitchers are available, they pitch well. When the best aren't, they struggle. Simple enough. In the playoffs this shouldn't be a problem, as Girardi will have all the relievers up to full strength.

Jesus Montero made his catching debut, allowing two stolen bases and catching one runner.

Enjoy your night, folks, you all get Comments of the Game. Except you, The Melkman. Except you.
