No, Mo didn’t save it, or play CF, but the Yanks beat Houston last night, 3-2.
The Yanks got all three runs in the fourth on an RBI single by Mark Reynolds and a 2-run double by David Adams.
Adam Warren started and went 5. (W, 3-2, 3.39) 0 R, 2 H, 1 H and 4 K.
David Phelps 1 2/3, 2 R, 1 H, 2 walks and 1 K. 5.04.
Phelps wasn’t THAT bad. He left with two on and two out in the seventh and for some inexplicable reason, Girardi brought in Joba who immediately, on two pitches, gave up a double and single to let both inherited runners score. Then, after a SB and 2nd and 3rd, and a walk to load the bases, he got an out to get out of it. Terrible.
Joba 1/3 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 1 walk, 0 K. 4.93. Truthfully, Joba should have the ERA over 5, not Phelps, but what can you do?
Claiborne 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 walk, 1 K. 4.17.
David Robertson got the save, and a lot of boos. The Houston crowd wanted to see Mo. No offense to them, but I hope Mo doesn’t pitch again. The way he went out Thursday night at the Stadium should be the way to go and should be the last pitch he ever throws. Now for CF, who knows?
Robertson (Save #3), 1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 walks and 1 K. 2.07.
I’ll post Rivera’s and Pettitte’s career stats after the season is over, but tonight, Pettitte makes the last start of his career. Hopefully he wins. He is 10-11 and NEVER has had a losing season in his whole career. (He went 14-14 in 2008).
Only one man ever has pitched in 10 or more seasons and had a winning record in EACH one. Do you know it was Babe Ruth?
