The Yankees starting pitching in the Mets series was worthy of capturing wins, but with the offense in the slump that it is currently experiencing, the starting pitchers giving up even two runs in a game is too much. Vidal Nuno pitched a good ball game tonight, as he allowed only two runs in six solid innings on a two-run home run to Marlon Byrd. The third Mets run came in the eighth inning on a swinging bunt by John Buck that scored the runner from third as David Adams let the ball roll in fair territory, hoping it would go foul. He wouldn't have a chance to get the hustling Buck anyhow as he was playing back and the ball was a slow roller down the line.
Not to fear Yankees fans, as reinforcements are on their way tomorrow night. The current team as it stands is not getting the job done anymore. The Yankees getting Teixeira and Youkilis back in time for the Boston series may be what the doctor prescribed. The games won't get any easier though, as the Sox send a thriving Jon Lester to the mound against a struggling CC Sabathia. The Yankees will only go as far as Sabathia will take them. The upcoming series is huge for the Yankees, who are desperately looking for a win. It's been a while to say the least.
