Game 11 Recap: Minnesota Twins 3, New York Yankees 8

After Monday night's victory, I was a little concerned that the Mayans were right about this year. Order has been restored, and all is apparently right with the world: The Yankees beat the Twins again tonight.

Despite actually scoring some runs against Sabathia early in the game, both leads they earned were promptly lost by Liriano who continued his struggles. Once Sabathia had a lead he mowed the Twins down like he seems to do every time they face him. I didn't really have my hopes up since, well, it's the Yankees. Add in watching Span & Gardy tossed by an insecure umpire, and it wasn't a terribly fun baseball game.

Win tomorrow and the series win is still in order. With Jason Marquis on the mound I have no fear!

WP: Cap'n Crunch Sabathia (1-0) | LP: Francisco Liriano (0-2)
Josh Willingham: Awesome baseball player.
Greg Gibson: Terrible umpire. Oh wait, that's redundant. Umpire.

  1. I like Trader Clete too. That "pinch-hit" double for Span was the highlight of the game for me...but that could be because I turned it off after Jones' homerun.

  2. Hey sean, it would be kind of cool if we had a spot on the homepage to show the date/time for the next game. I feel insecure having to go to sinister sites like, 4ltr, etc. to look it up, and having it on display here would help Citizens note if it's a day game or an off day. Just a thought...

      1. Do you use Chrome or a different browser, Rhu? In Chrome, they've got an MLB scoreboard extension you can download. I don't see any broadcast info on it, but it's about half of what you're looking for.

    1. Just noticed this. I think it would be possible. There's a large amount of blank room at the top that could be used or it could be placed on the heavily used sidebar.

            1. Oh, shun me, will you!!

              *shakes fist. Threatens to move to Twinkie Town. Realizes that he'd be better off with the Stribbers. Sobs quietly to self*
