We Clawed Back, But Clawed Short

The Good

The offense came alive last night hitting 6 homeruns including multi-homeruns from A-Rod and Teixeira.

The Bad

Though the Yankees clawed their way back and put the tieing run at the plate with 2 outs in the 9th, they couldn't get it done. An ugly swing-and-a-miss strikeout for Cano left A-Rod stranded at 2nd, and fans weeping in the stands.

The Ugly

Andy Pettitte showed massive signs of rust and maybe even some tetanus poisoning with his 3.1 innings of 7 run ball (6 earned). Though he may shake off the rust, tetanus is a little more difficult to shake, and could prove costly in late innings of his starts.

Homeruns Not the Problem

Although this loss cast the Tampa Bay Rays into first in the division, children everywhere were able to breath a sigh of relief when they heard the Yankees hit 6 homeruns, drawing $12 additional dollars from the RJG blog to heal the babies by way of the Children's Health Fund.

Posada 18hr = $36

Winn 1hr = $2
Miranda 3hr = $6
Curtis 1hr = $2
Kearns 2hr = $4
Nunez 1hr = $2
Berkman 1hr = $2
Total = $372
