Yesterday was my birthday (the big 2-9), and instead of giving me the gift of a Yankees victory over the Red Sox…..I got the exact opposite. A loss. Oh joy. That’s 6 straight losses against the Red Sox this season, which is an even better belated birthday gift.
I hope Mark’s okay though, that was one hell of a HBP he took. He mentioned on Twitter (yes, I follow him) that he was doing alright, so that’s good to hear. Derek got a couple more hits last night, so now he’s only 12 away from 3,000. Garcia didn’t even get out of the 2nd innings, with Noesi doing the longman’s work, pitching 6 relief innings.
Can we please win this series? I hope it’s not too much to ask.
