Though I haven’t posted this in b/r, I still want my “article” posted so I’ll have it here. Comments, suggestions, and anything of the like are welcome. Thank you.
It all started with almost an hour of delay because of rain.
Mark Teixeira’s missed catch from Suzuki allowed the Seattle Mariners’ right fielder to earn a double RBI.
Ichiro Suzuki also earned a 2-run double in the fourth inning when
centre fielder Melky Cabrera missed Suzuki’s flyball to his territory.
As if those were not enough, another base was made available for Suzuki
in the ninth inning when Aceves missed to catch the ball from Mark
Teixeira, but it was accounted as an error of the first baseman. It
would’ve been the first out of the inning.
Next in line to Suzuki was first baseman Russell Branyan, who on the
first pitch of Aceves had hit all the way to the restaurant of the
The 2-run homer of Branyan was the last hit of the Mariners. It was
also the last stay in the mound of Aceves, who replaced CC Sabathia and
brought the last out of the sixth inning. David Robertson replaced

Mariner who grounded out was the first one to hit a homer, Franklin
Gutierrez who hit right back to David Robertson.

Yankees against the Seattle Mariners. So, I just contented myself with MLB Gameday, like what I usually do in situations like this.
The Yankees won the second game of the series, 4-2, against the
Mariners. Good. It was their seventh straight win and Mariano Rivera’s
502nd save. Congratulations, Mr. Rivera! Also, A-Rod had another 2 run homer, right into The Monument.
I wanted to write about the game, but I haven’t watched it with my own eyes though I have the game details through the Gameday and Game Wrapup. I also want to write about Ramiro Peña. I’m going to miss this guy. He’s got talent, and he is good.
There was an article written, but it was my opinion about Joe Girardi’s
decision to pull Phil Hughes out and replace him with Brian Bruney.
It’s Mr. Girardi’s call, not mine. I have it posted in Bleacher Report. If anyone wants to read what I wrote, it’s here: The Arcane Eight Inning Decision of Joe Girardi
The next starting pitcher is CC Sabathia and I thank God that ESPN Asia will cover the game. 0700H GMT+8.
