Yankees Split With Cubs

The Good

The Yankees out lasted the Cubs last night, and edged them out on a throwing error by Jose Veras in the 13th inning.  Might not be how you'd draw up a win, but a win is a win.  Chase Whitley pitched a decent game going 4.1 innings and allowing just 1 run, however the bullpen was remarkable holding the Cubs to one run over 8.2 innings.

The Bad

Tanaka wasn't his typical unhittable self, though even then he gave us 6 innings of 4 run ball (3 earned) and struck out 7 in the process.  This was his first loss of the season.

The Ugly

The Yankee offense has been underwhelming contributing to yesterday's game requiring 13 innings and an error to get ahead, and Tuesday's 6-1 loss.  It wasn't for lack of hitting per say (the Yankees had 13 hits yesterday), but the Yankees are displaying a recurring inability to drive in runs.  Before, they could rely on the long ball, but now they need to hit with runners in scoring position, and that's been a challenge for this offense. 

Not in Wrigley

The Yankees have left Chicago without contributing a single dollar to charity.  Are the Yankees against charity?  Only time will tell.
