Where Yankee Fans And Their Bomber Buddies Come To Talk Baseball...

NUNEZ DOWN AND OUT

Derek Jeter’s replacement may need a replacement.  Eduardo Nunez left Sunday’s game after four innings with tightness and irritation in his left rib cage.  Results of his MRI were negative and he is day to day. But Joe Girardi did not think he would be available Tuesday when the Yankees face the Colorado Rockies.

Although relieved by the results, Nunez said he was “very tight” after the game and felt pain when swinging the bat and throwing, what else is there?  The Daily Snooze reports the Yanks may need a Shortstop.

 Just how long until we strat worrying about Andy Pettitte?

 

VERY PHUPHILLING

Phil Hughes may have pitched his best game of the young season as the Yanks beat the A’s 4-2.

Robbie Cano, CC Sabathia and Vernon Wells spent the night watching the Bulls eliminate the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclay Center.

Hughes, who gave up four hits and didn’t allow a man past second base, became  the first Yankees right-handed starter to throw eight shutout innings and strike  out at least nine since Mike Mussina on Sept. 14, 2004, at Kansas City. He earned his first win of  the year.

A.J. Griffin pitched six-hit ball into the eighth inning Friday night and Adam Rosales homered on CC Sabathia’s first pitch, leading the Oakland Athletics to a 2-0 victory over the New York Yankees.  Despite the loss that may have been CC’s best game of the young season.

Derek Norris hit an RBI single in the sixth inning to help Oakland open its 10-game road trip with its fourth win in five games.  Griffin (3-2) coming off two losses in which he allowed 11 earned runs and 13 hits in 11 innings, Griffin was smooth on the mound, too.

The Yankees had two runners on base only once, in the third inning, and Griffin needed only nine pitches in the each of the fourth through sixth innings. He struck out four, walked one and was removed for Sean Doolittle after Gardner’s bunt single to start the eighth.
