Lots of comments deep into the night, so let’s start a second thread.
Yankees lead 7-2 in the seventh.
UPDATE, 12:37 a.m.: Not Adam Kennedy’s day. He’s 0 for 4 with four K’s.
Meanwhile, the other leadoff hitter is 3 for 5. Jeter is 12 of his last 25. He’s hitting .330.
CC is at 90 pitches with two outs in the eighth. They could let him finish this one in front of all his friends and family. He deserves it.
UPDATE, 12:52 a.m.: No complete game for CC and now Dave Robertson has walked the first two he faced.
UPDATE, 12:57 a.m.: Girardi has Mariano up now. Seems a little much.
UPDATE, 12:58 a.m.: Back later with clubhouse reaction. Carsten Charles will be quite pleased, I’m sure.
