Swisher slugged an RBI triple, which seems really exciting! Jeter and Cano had a pair of hits each, and Chamberlain managed to get his ERA down with a scoreless inning. Marte also pitched a scoreless inning, but it will be lost to the times since the Yankees lost.
The Yankee offense was shut down by Seattle cast away, and former Red Sox releiver, Joel Pineiro. The man threw 7 innings allowing one run against us and 7 strikeouts. He's my fellow countrymen so I can't be too mad at him, but I can be very mad at the Yankee offense for not scoring more runs against him. Its Joel Pineiro for crying out loud!
Javier Vazquez. Also my countrymen, but cannot let that excuse him. Not after 2004. His 5.1 innings of 4 run ball is a marked improvement over his 5.2 innings of 8 run ball he threw in his last start, but some remain unimpressed. However, following this trend, he should throw 5 innings of 2 run ball his next time out, which should be good enough for our offense.
The Long Ball That Chicks Supposedly Dig
No homeruns today as the only Yankee power came off a double by Cano, and a triple by Swisher. Swisher admitted that he could have made that a homerun, but simply could not find the love in his heart to do so.
