Tough Loss in Beantown…

Game 1 goes to Julia of Julia’s Rants

The Yankees lost to the Boston Red Sox on Friday night, 5-4, in extra innings.  The Red Sox had tied the score in the bottom of the 9th against the great Mariano Rivera, with a dramatic two-run home run by Jason Bay.  The Red Sox have hit well against Mo in recent years in certain clutch situations, and this, unfortunately, was another example.  Kevin Youklis ended it in the 11th inning with a homer off Damaso Marte…

 

 

I have been on vacation this week so unfortunately I have been unable to post my usual blogs.  I apologize for the lack of greater participation in the latest Yankees-Red Sox series.  Like who would schedule a vacation when the Yankees are playing the Red Sox?  I know, a bonehead move on my part.

Nevertheless, there are still two games to go.  A.J. Burnett will be on the mound today, and Andy Pettitte on Sunday.  Regardless of what happens, it should be a good series.

I do want to wish Julia a very Happy Birthday!

 

Of course, the Yankees have allowed her to start it a little too happily but hopefully there will be sone vinegar in that cake frosting by the end the day!  Sorry Julia, just kidding…

Enjoy your day!  Well, at least until the final score of today’s game… 

Go Yankees!

I don’t know, Scott, it looks like you picked a good time to go on vacation after all. Wow. But I guess I don’t feel quite so bad about the Twins getting thumped by the Sox anymore.-Erinhttp://plunking-gomez.mlblogs.com
