When your backup SS (Brendan Ryan) is your best pitcher of the night, that is not good. Combine that with your offense getting one run and four hits and it’s not good either.
The Yanks were thrashed 15-1 by the Astros Tuesday night and dropped one game out of first place because Toronto rallied late to beat Texas.
Carlos Gomez of Houston, who was a jackass years ago in Milwaukee and who had a confrontation with Brian McCann (then with Atlanta) a few years back, had a confrontation with Joe Girardi and John Ryan Murphy during the game Tuesday night. The guy is a clown.
Not much to say about this one except to get to the pitching line.
As for Capuano, who has been DFA’d and brought back 3x, what can you say? I just wonder how many of his 9 cat lives he has used up.
Teixeira played, but was pulled early when the game got out of hand.
