The Silent Bats
Andy Pettitte was great for the Yankees tonight despite getting the loss. He gave up two runs and in the seventh inning a missed catch on a pop up came to score after Pettitte allowed a couple of hits to the following batters. Pettitte had a lead after the Yankees scored him two runs but gave it up. The problem with the pitching is that they aren't getting runs to work with so if they give up three runs there is a good chance that they will lose the game, which is the fate Pettitte suffered tonight against the struggling Halos.
CC Sabathia will try to stop the bleeding tomorrow evening as he faces Jered Weaver who recently came off the disabled list for the Angels. The Yankees quest for runs will get interesting tomorrow night as they go against a legitimate ace in Weaver. Sabathia has to keep the Angels off the scoreboard and give his team a chance to score him some runs.
