Game 17. Yanks blow 4-0 lead. Bullpen can’t p/u Kuroda.

The Yanks got off to a 4-0 lead, and had a 5-3 lead w/two-0uts in the 7th, but lost 11-5 to snap their five-game winning streak.

Scott Sizemore cleared the bases with a bases-loaded double in the 2nd.

Hiroki Kuroda ran out of gas.  5 2/3, 3 R, 7 H, 2 walks and 2 K. ERA to 4.07.

Phelps 1/3, 1 R. Thornton 2/3, 1 R.

Warren 1 IP, 3 R. (L). There is one thing about Warren’s performance tonight that I did not like. Three straight batters. Three straight that he got two strikes on and could not put them away. All three times, when he got two strikes, he went to a cutter or slider. No fastballs, curves or changeups. If you are the other team, and know he only goes to cutters or sliders when he has two strikes on you, what are you sitting on? You have to diversify better than that.

Cesar Cabral was terrible and needs his ass kicked. 3 R, 0 outs. 3 h. But 3 HBP and he was kicked out of the game. The Yanks may have someone thrown at b/c this dummy hit three batters. There is no excuse for that.

Update: After the game, Cabral was DFA’d & Matt Daley was called up.
