What was supposed to be a pitching duel between two of the best pitchers in baseball turned out to be somewhat of a slug fest for the Yankees. The Mets scored 4 of their 5 runs with two outs, just like they have been doing all season. The defense on both sides was terrible tonight. The Yankees, who entered tonight's game with the fewest errors committed in the league, made 3 errors behind CC Sabathia. Chris Stewart made two of the three errors. His second error however, should have been charged to Robbie Cano. Stewart made a perfect throw to second base and Cano let it trickle into center field. CC Sabathia was not great tonight. His pitch count climbed early and led to his eventual early departure. Cory Wade came in and surrendered the tying run in the sixth inning. After Wade, the rest of the bullpen was lights out, specifically Boone Logan. He has become a premiere reliever in the game.
Tomorrow, the Cleveland Indians come to Yankee Stadium to play three games. Tomorrow's starters are Josh Tomlin for the Tribe and Hiroki Kuroda for the Bombers. The Indians have been playing well this year and the Yankees have won two in a row.
