Moose with a complete game shutout. The interesting thing is: he threw 131 pitches. Man, they're treating this like a Game 7. Wonder if there'll be any repercussions for overusing him? I imagine the thinking was that he was ON, and they were scoring (A-Rod even got a 2-rbi hit...with 2 outs!!!), so leave him in and stop the bleeding...a loss in the 9th, while improbable, would've felt like the end of the season.
So the Yanks are now 12-19. Their 11-19 start ties (with 1912 and 1966) as their second-worst start of all time (with 1913 being the worst). Those years their final records were
1912: 50-102 (.329); 1913: 57-94 (.377); 1925: 69-85 (.448); 1966: 70-89 (.440).
No Sox game tonight. Damn. Man, I really wish John Henry had a horse in the Derby.
