Freddy Garcia went seven innings, allowing only two runs. Chamberlain and Robertson both followed with scoreless innings of their own. Teixeira snuck a home run over the right field wall.
One run was all the Yankees could muster against R.A. Dickey and the Mets. "R.A. Who?" you ask? Yes. R.A. Who.
It may be that the pending investigation into child abuse against the Yankees by Baltimore Social Services and the Maryland County DA may have been weighing heavily on the Yanks.
"If they file charges, we can't go back to Baltimore," explained Joe Girardi. "Those are automatic wins. Automatic! We can't lose those! I don't think any of us slept last night."
The offense seems to have slept instead during the game.
Baby, Baby, Baby, Baby, Oh Baby
That's right, a Carpenter's reference. You know you love that song! You really do! (Damn, I just hit you with another one). Teixeira's utterly pointless solo shot is redeemed by our charitable efforts. $2 more for the babies.
