Alex Rodriguez wasn’t half-bad at the plate last night. He had a bloop single in his first at bat, drove a high fastball to deep center the next time up (hit it pretty well but it was just high enough for him not to center it), was late on an inside fastball in his third at bat and flied out to deep left, and then struck out looking to end his night. Unfortunately, Andy Pettitte wasn’t half-good. The White Sox scored 3 runs in the first inning and while nobody hit the ball hard and luck was on the home team’s side, things got worse after that and Pettitte was gone before the end of the 3rd inning.
Rough night for the Bombers. Final score: White Sox 8, Yankees 1.
