If you thought the Yankees had run out of ways to lose games, you thought wrong. Today’s disgrace of a game featured two unearned runs off of Andy Pettitte, the second coming when Aaron Hill stole home to regain the lead for Toronto in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Yankees came back to tie the game in the eighth, then yielded what would become the game-winner in the bottom of the eighth.
Pettitte deserved better. He went 7.1 innings, giving up 3 runs, only 1 earned, on 6 hits and 1 walk while striking out three.
The Yankee offense was provided by Jason Giambi’s solo shot in the seventh, and a clutch two-out single by Jorge Posada in the eighth. Proctor came in with a runner on third and one out in the bottom of the eighth. He promptly gave up a sacrifice fly to Rios, 3–2 Blue Jays. Game, set, match.
A couple of notes:
Player of the Game: Andy Pettitte, he deserved better than another loss with no run support.
