Lester dominated the Yankees tonight
. It was a sad sight to behold. Three double plays to kill the pitiful attempts at rallies the Yanks put together. Melky and Cano had two hits apiece, Jeter added the fifth in the ninth. There isn't much more to say about this one.
Pettitte pitched to bad luck early on. A Jeter error was responsible for the first two runs. The third scored on a couple of broken bats. The fourth on a bloop single, stolen base, bunt and sac fly.
This series has me extremely worried at this point. I'll be in the Bronx tomorrow afternoon and to be honest with you, I can't say it's a pitching match-up I'm looking forward to. Rasner vs. Beckett, ouch.
The Yanks fall 4.5 games behind the Sox with this loss. A split in this series would be a stroke of luck after losing this one tonight. Another dark day for me, hopefully tomorrow will be brighter.Player of The Game:
