It’s overcast and 69 degrees here at Legends Field. Rain could be coming.
In a matchup of legends, it’s Jon Albaladejo vs. Randy Wells. The game is on YES and WCBS, so my dedication to live blogging could be limited. But I’ll chime in from time to time.
Just ran into Ron Howard in the lunchroom. I had no idea what to say to him, so I stopped at “Hello.”
In retrospect, I should have gone with “Cinderella Man was underrated,” but I missed the chance.
Anyway, enjoy the game.
This inning just has to be recorded for the sake of baseball scholars.
Eckstein: Singles on an 0-2 pitch
Rios: Groundball through the legs of Jeter. Duncan foolishly throws to third and Rios advances to second
Wells: Grounds to third, drives in a run
Rolen: Fly ball to left that Shelley drops, run scores
Thomas: Single off the base at third
Hill: RBI double
Stewart: Bloop single into short right, two runs score
(now it starts raining)
Scutaro: Double over the head of everybody to center, one run scores.
5-0 Jays and Albaladejo is out of the game and probably en route to Scranton.
Still only one out. Scott Patterson on to pitch.
Kyle Farnsworth pitched the second inning and allowed a double and a walk before getting out of trouble. Shelley made a diving catch for the last out and left a crater in left.
Now we’re in a rain delay.
UPDATE, 2:33 p.m.: The game was just canceled.
