Yup, that’s what happens when you get the early crew covering a late night game. An 8 o’clock start was pushed back a couple of hours by rain–no, by hail if you can believe it–and by the time the Magic dashed the high hopes of Lebron James and the Cavs to take a 3-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference NBA finals, I was just about shot.
It was 2-0 Texas when I fell out. Yanks couldn’t get the bit hit early against Kevin Millwood, Joba Chamberlian didn’t look great, and Melky Cabrera had to leave the game after crashing into the center field wall. The bullpen couldn’t hold it down late.
Final Score: Rangers 7, Yanks 3.
The Yanks remain a game out of first place. Both Toronto and Boston lost too.
