Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Aug 07, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

We go to extra innings at 0-0. Just a terrific game.

Alfredo Aceves in to pitch for the Yankees.

UPDATE, 10:31 p.m.: Walking Chris Woodward in a 0-0 game with two outs? Alfredo, Alfredo. 19 walks in two nights. Not good.

UPDATE, 10:36 p.m.: Ramon Ramirez to face Cano, Hairston and Cabrera.

UPDATE, 10:45 p.m.: Jeter with a chance to be a hero. Would they dare pie him?

UPDATE, 10:53 p.m.: No pie for you, Derek.

Yankees and Red Sox in extra innings scoreless for the first time since May of 1976.

UPDATE, 11:00 p.m.: Nice work by Alfredo Aceves, two scoreless innings. Damon, Tex and the overdue A-Rod to face Papelbon in the 11th.

UPDATE, 11:09 p.m.: Well, the bad news is that this game refuses to end. The good news for the Yankees is that Papelbon is probably finished.

UPDATE, 11;20 p.m: The two bullpens thus far: 8.1 innings. 3 hits, 0 runs, 10 Ks.

Brian Bruney warming up. That’s apparently it for Aceves.

UPDATE, 11:29 p.m.: Another shot for the Yankees. Melky with runners on first and second and two down. Yankees 0-8 with RISP.

Ironic if the Red Sox lost because of walks.

UPDATE, 11:32 p.m.: Where’s Luis Castillo when you need him?

Brian Bruney in to pitch. We haven’t seen much of him lately.

UPDATE, 11:39 p.m.: Bruney gets it done. Back to the top of the order for the bottom of the lucky 13th inning.

UPDATE, 11:45 p.m.: Jeter 1 for 11 in the series.

UPDATE, 11:50 p.m.: Alex with another shot to end it.

UPDATE, 11:54 p.m.: Going to the next thread. Part IV.
