CC Sabathia pitched a good game, 8 innings 3 hits, 3 walks and 8 k. We did make a try at a come back against Mariano Rivera, got a couple of hits, but wasn't enough.
Ricky Romero, was bad but wasn't great. 5 innings 6 hits, 4 runs, 3 earned, 3 walks and 7 strikeouts. He could have used a bit more help from his defense (and his offense). The bullpen pitched 4 scoreless innings. Camp, Perez, Francisco and Rauch allowed just 4 hits between them.
We just had 5 hits on the day. 2 for Adam Lind. 1 each for Yunel Escobar (who drove in our run), Edwin Encarnacion and John McDonald.
No Jay of the Day. Yunel came closest at .085 WPA. Romero (-.188), Hill (-.172, plus an error, throwing home to get Curtis Granderson going home), Snider (-.115), Thames (-.102) and Davis (-.099, plus he missed a very catchable Nick Swisher fly ball, that became a ground rule double).
Tomorrow Carlos Villanueva (5-1, 2.99) goes against the Yankees and Phil Hughes (0-2, 10.57). Hughes looked a little better in his first start back from the minors, against the Indians last week. He gave up 2 runs in 5 innings.
