Yankees fall short in Crazy game
The first inning of tonight's game was one of the wackiest I've ever seen. Jered Weaver leaves the game in the first with a back injury. The Yankees score 3 runs thanks to two errors then in the bottom of the inning then the Angels come back to score 4 runs on five hard hit balls off of Hughes. The craziness in this game could have been avoided if Hughes didn't give everything away in the first inning. The Yankees offense showed their toughness by matching the Angels score in their at bats. However, they fell short in the ninth when Cory "Walk-Off" Wade gave up a home run to Mark Trumbo to give the Angels their seventh straight win. The Yankees lose a heart breaker where they got hits from guys who desperately needed them. They loaded the bases in the ninth but Jeter grounded out before Trumbo hit his home run in the bottom half of the inning. Teixeira continues to stay hot and Alex Rodriguez still can't get a hit with runners in scoring position.
