Losing to the Mets is not the end of the world, but it still sucks.
Mark Teixeira hit his 11th homer in the 3rd, but that was one of only 4 hits the Yankees got off knuckleballer R.A. Dickey (2-5). Freddy Garcia (2-4) pitched well, but a run in the 4th and a homer by Daniel Murphy in the 6th made the difference. Mets 2, Yankees 1. (Francisco "You Want a Piece of Me?" Rodriguez got his 15th save.)
As was the case during their recent 6-game losing streak, the Yankees wasted a lot of opportunities. In the immortal words of Yankee Fan Billy Crystal, "I hate when that happens!"
The Yankees scored 13 runs in Baltimore on Thursday night. Saving any 2 of those for last night would've meant the game. Saving and 1 of them would have meant at least extra innings.
A.J. Burnett goes against Chris Capuano at 7:10 tonight. We need hits and runs, and we need "Good A.J."
I hate the Mets. The world is not coming to an end today... but let's make the Mutts and their fans wish it had!
