Yankees keep winning against Brewers

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Jun 29, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

A four-run fourth inning erased an early deficit and sent the Yankees to a 5-2 win against the Brewers tonight. It was the Yankees fourth straight win and their 14th win in the past 18 games. Russell Martin delivered the big blow with a three-run home run in the fourth. Nick Swisher had already tied it with an RBI single and Jorge Posada later added a solo homer. A.J. Burnett pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on seven hits. Dave Robertson stranded two runners in the eighth and Mariano Rivera picked up the save with a scoreless ninth.

    Wow…is Gameday that slow or did Chad actually post this before the game was over?

    KenDavidoff David Robertson has at least one strikeout in 78% of his big-league appearances. Mariano Rivera? A paltry 66%. #Brewers-#Yankees

    Starting pitching is what wins.

    The mets & detroit having batting practice. Hopefully Verlander cools the Mets bats off before this weekend

    “I can’t believe Mo has only pitched 22 2/3 innings this season…”

    Huh? He just completed inning #31.

    About Hughes and his curve, it was very sharp against Texas the night that he was throwing the no hitter and got hurt. That was a while ago, but it suggests that Hughes had a pretty good curve when he first came up.

    Chris W…When Mo entered tonight’s game, YES graphic had him at 25 games, 1.99 ERA, 15 saves and 22. 2 innings…..I went back to check on my DVR, I know he as more than 15 saves, I guess YeS put up old stats???

    Nice win by The Yankees, we are on a roll. McGhee had no clue in his last AB. Mo is an absolute machine, good morning, good afternoon and good nite.

    Meat Tray as ‘Anthony Weiner’ photos of Cashman and Girardi..

    Mitre currently has the best ERA 3.27 of his career. Goodbye Kitty.

    Watched Hughes on TV today from the 5th until removed in the 7th- curve was very good-dropped like a splitter.

    Welcome back Sergio. Glad to see him back!

    This is exactly what I posted that would be best case scenario in the ST time frame. Send him to another club and re-acquire him at ASB time.

    Our bullpen is really shaping up for a strong second half.

  18. Yankee Trader June 29th, 2011 at 10:29 pm

    Doug Davis, Melvin Mora and Ryan Franklin all released today.

  19. BoJo June 29th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Waiver wires are really heating up….

    Tomorrow is another day, another game, and another win! Good night everybody, and enjoy the evening.
