This was not the night for our bullpen to shine.
The Pen didn't just blow it once, but twice. Okijima gave up a run in the 8th to tie, when Cano hit a triple. Oh yeah, and, in case you didnt hear, Papelbon gave up a shot to A-Rod on an 0-2 count, giving the Yankees the lead in the top of the 9th.
Beckett gets a no decision this time. Still undefeated, but without a win last night.
How ironic that A-Rod's homer landed right into our bullpen. An exclamation point from a guy who had one heck of a tumultuous week.
Well, here in the Nation, we get somewhere in the neighborhood of 85 days to think about it. That's because the next time we face those guys, it will be the end of August. A lot can happen between now and then.
For now, it's a long haul to the West Coast, for a series with Oakland, and then Interleague play against Arizona. Our boys will likely be pretty tired. Lets hope they muster enough together, to offer Tavarez some run support.
Talk to you all tomorrow; Look below for some pictures from Saturday's game...
