Game Recap 8/29

This would be a prime example of why it’s so diificult to win 20 games in a season. Mike Mussina picked up a no-decision yesterday, despite seven strong innings. He allowed only two runs, on five hits and two walks. He struck out six. The second run scored in the fifth after a chopper just…

Game Recap 8/22 – Oh so close

Thank God the we don’t face the Orioles again this year. There wasn’t much of shot for a win in this one from the beginning. After Radhames Liz struggled to find the strike zone in the top of the first, the Yankees spotted Moose a 1 run lead. It didn’t last long. In the Oriole…
