This seems to be an ongoing pattern for Freddy Garcia & the Yankees. After a start where he threw 5 Wild Pitches, Garcia kept giving up runs. Lots and lots of runs in a 7-3 loss to the Twins.
GARCIA: THE ODD MAN OUT?: Freddy Garcia just didn’t have it. He gave up 2 runs in the first inning before settling down until the fifth. Then Garcia gave up another 2 runs in the fifth and another run in the 6th before he was lifted in favor of Boone Logan. The way that Freddy Garcia (and Phil Hughes) are pitching, it looks as if the rotation will shape itself up as soon as Michael Pineda & Andy Pettitte return.
OFFENSE STARTED…THEN STOPPED: The Yankees easily came back from their first inning deficit with 2 back to back homers from Derek Jeter & Curtis Granderson but after the Yankees scored 3 runs in the first…the offense just stopped. The Yankees bats were shut down by Carl Pavano (really Yankees?) and the Twins bullpen (again…really Yankees?).
GRANDY FLASHES SOME LEATHER: Curtis Granderson didn’t just have a HR. He also made some flashy plays in the outfield. Then again, when your left field teammate is as fast as you are, you end up feeling like a daredevil going after baseballs when you know he has your back.
WHAT’S NEXT: The Yankees will try round 2 with CC Sabathia on the mound. Francisco Liriano will pitch for the Twins. The game is on YES Network and first pitch is at 7:05pm.
