There was nothing exciting about last night’s game.
AJ Burnett was awful, and it had nothing to do with the short rest. It probably had more to do with the tight strike zone and no control of his pitches. The Yankees gave the Phillies 8 runs and scored 6, and brought the tying run to the plate in the 9th. If the Yankees are capable of doing that, then they are much more capable of winning the Series, period.
Here’s a game recap from Greg Cohen at Sliding into Home.
And Benjamin Kabak from River Ave. Blues plays the blame game — is there someone specific to blame? Hmmm….
The Yankees are off today before doing game #6 on Wednesday at 7:57pm. It’ll be Andy Pettitte against Pedro Martinez.
