Mitre couldn’t go tonight because of a sore forearm after getting hit with a line drive in his last start. That start, not to mention, was his best as a Yankee, and probably the best of his career. So, to take his place, Gaudin made the start. He was good to begin with, but seemed to get a little tired and lost the strike zone. He ended the night going 3.2 innings, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks. Those walks really haunted him. Romero on the other side, gave up four runs in the first inning. Two were on errors. He got very strong for a few innings, then fell apart again. He ended going 4.1 innings giving up seven runs on six hits and seven strikeouts. Only five of those runs were earned. Aceves, Robertson, Bruney and Marte did another great job. They pitched a combined 5.1 innings and gave up just two hits and two runs. Both the hits and the runs were given up by Aceves. The Yankees got to Frasor in the ninth. At that moment, it was a close game. A-Rod hit a line drive right over the left field wall and Posada hit a two run moon shot to right. That blew the game open and made it 10-5.
Player of the Game: Jorge Posada: 4 for 5, R, 4 RBI
The Wrap-Up: Now seven in a row for the Yankees. They have scored 20 runs in the past two days. Wow. Save some for the playoffs boys! Boston won — who cares — so the Yankees still have a 7.5 game lead in the East. Just a little observation. I don’t know if you heard it, but there was someone at the stadium screaming “Vernon Wells, worse contract in baseball!” Then he was yelling out his stats. Pretty funny.
Coming Up Next: Chamberlain (8-4, 4.28) against Halladay (13-8, 3.13). Halladay just hasn’t been the same pitcher since he wasn’t traded. There will probably be some stupid innings limit tomorrow as well. We are in for an interesting game.

    Hey, I noticed you commented over at Lisa’s blog [Perennial Pinstriper] and I thought I’d come by and check out the digs. Very nice! I’d love it if you made a regular appearance in the comments section of my blog – I could always do with the fresh blood. 🙂

    The bullpen was definitely one of the main reasons we won this game. While they made it a little more close than I would have liked, they kept our lead which is in essence, what a bullpen is supposed to do.

    I’m hoping we can get to Halladay since he’s looked human lately. That means of course he’s due to throw a perfecto against us, but I’m hoping his bad luck will continue. As for Joba…..I’m hoping we score about 10 runs in the first two innings so that whoever comes in after him has no pressure. I’m also hoping that the innings limit doesn’t mean he throws 30 pitches or else our bullpen will be taxed to hell and back.

    *Can’t wait for tomarrow’s game. Roy vs Joba should be an interesting matchup for sure. We’re lucky we’ve been hitting so well lately, because Gaudin didn’t do his part at all filling in for Mitre… Great game on our batter behalf though. AND our late relievers…
