The Chicken Man Brings Home Dinner Tonight
The real reason the Yankees lost tonight was because Andy Pettitte gave up five runs in the first inning. There was a 53 minute rain delay and the lefty has had trouble in his career after delayed starts. After the first inning, he shut down the offense and went six innings. The Yankee offense kept getting runs but they didn't amount to anything important as they managed to lose to Niese and the Mets. Once again, they got runners on but came up empty aside from Cano in the eighth inning when he lifted a two-run blasr against Miguel Batista to lower the Yankee deficit to two runs.
