E-Rod Strikes Again
By mvyb, 21.07.2006, 10:31

Yankees- 4, Blue Jays- 5 (11 innings)
-
W- Tallet (3-0)
L- Rivera (4-5)
-
Notable Yankee Players:
-
C- Posada, 3-5 ( 1B, 1B, 2B, RBI)
2B- Cairo, 1-3 ( 1B, R, RBI, SB, sac fly)
LF- Cabrera, 1-3 ( 1B, BB, R, 2 SB)
P- Mussina: 7IP, 6H, 4R, 4ER, 6K
P- Proctor: H, 2K, 2IP
 
 
These are the toughest games to watch and then write about.... Mike Mussina pitched beautifully and deserved his 12th win of the year. Scott Proctor was brilliant and gave the Yankees the chance to win the ballgame in extras. Jason Giambi and Jorge Posada led a comeback against one of the game's best closers, B. J. Ryan. All for nothing.
 
Yes, Mariano Rivera gave up the walkoff home run to Wells, but the real cause for this loss was Yankee thirdbaseman, Alex Rodriguez.
 
Here's the scenario: It's the sixth inning, Yankees up 3 to 0. Blue Jays have a runner on third with one out. Hill chops to third base, and Alex Rodriguez fields the ball easily. Because of the artificial turf, the ball came right at A-Rod, giving him plenty of time to throw the runner out at home, and maybe even start a 5-2-3 double play.
 
Instead, Alex makes a terrible throw home (a truly terrible throw) allowing the runner at third to score and the batter, Hill, to advance to second base. Rodriguez was given an error on the play, but Mussina was still charged with an earned run. Things crumbled for Mussina in that inning as he allowed four consecutive hits. All four runs were earned and charged to Mussina. ( Now if I was the official scorer, at least two of the runs would have been unearned. ) A-Rod's miscue clearly messed up Mussina's rhythm, because when Mussina came back out in the seventh, he pitched an easy 1-2-3 inning. If Alex makes the throw home, the Yanks win the ballgame. ( And even if Alex threw the Hill out at first, allowing the one runner to score- the Yanks would have still won the game.)
 
During the YES network postgame, Mike Mussina was asked about Rodriguez, "We need him back, the way he's supposed to be."
 
Roy Halladay wasn't as sharp as I expected him to be, so the Yanks did get 8 hits and 3 runs off of him. Jorge Posada had the big night with three hits and an RBI. It was nice to see the Yanks play small-ball last night- the sac bunt, sac fly, and 3 stolen bases were very helpful in pushing a couple runs across against Doc Halladay.
 
Yankee Player of the Game: Scott Proctor
