Yanks lose 2nd straight
The New York Yankees lost to the Chicago White Sox by the score of 10-5 tonight. They didn't play a good game at all but it all starts with the starting pitcher and Sergio Mitre was just awful, he hasn't been much better then the guy he replaced Chien-Ming Wang and the Yankees didn't aquire a pitcher so this isn't looking good. I hate to say this but you may actually see Kei Igawa. Mitre has a 7.90 era now on the season, he pitched 3 innings giving up 5 runs on 7 hits. Dave Robertson came on in relief and gave up a run but the game really turned in the 7th inning when Aceves gave up 4 runs, it was just a sloppy inning all around though, Jorge Posada throwing through to second with a runner on 3rd allowing the run to score, a ball of of Mark Teixeira's glove that Cano makes a lazy throw home on and Jorge Posada drops the ball when the runner would of been out at home.
The Yankees scored early but then only scored 2 runs the rest of the way, they left way too many men on base again. A-rod had 3 hits and Eric Hinske hit a 2 run homerun, it seems everytime he starts he hits a homerun. Jorge Posada was 0-5, he just killed them in this game. The good thing is they have their best 2 pitchers going now the next 2 days although they are facing 2 pretty good pitchers themselves. The Yankees can't let this spiral out of control as their 3 game lead has now turned into a 1 game lead, the Yankees need to be in first place when they open the 4 game series with the Red Sox next thursday.
