If the Yanks are going to get to that magical two-games-over-.500 mark tonight, they have their work cut out for ’em.
Three weeks ago, Justin Duchscherer was a David Ortiz single away from throwing a perfect game against the Red Sox. This year, he’s throwing to a 2.32 ERA, and opponents are hitting just 212/.280/.285 against him. Darrell Rasner better bring his A game, and whoever’s due to pitch the ninth in a save situation better be on the ball too.
We’ve got another late start and another late finish. Enjoy.
