Game 138: Dead Team WalkingBy
I really don’t have much to say about the current state of the Yankees that I haven’t already said this week. They’ve fallen flat on their faces during the first seven games of this incredibly important ten-game stretch, and now they turn the ball over the Phil Hughes to stop the bleeding. Hughes allowed five runs in five innings to these very same Orioles last weekend, and overall he’s allowed 23 runs in his last six starts (34.1 IP). Not only does he not inspire much confidence, but neither does the bullpen behind him outside of Rafael Soriano. The Yankees are in an ugly place yet can still finish the night in sole possession of first place in the AL East. Here’s the batting order…
RHP Phil Hughes
Tonight’s game is scheduled to start a little after 7pm ET and can be seen on YES.
