  Chien-Ming Wang turned in another subpar outing today. He only went 5 innings, (he was pinched hit for in the 6th) giving up 3ER and picked up his 6th loss (0-6) of the season. He still hasn’t recorded a victory this season.

The whole team is in a slump now. They were in the game the whole time, but Tommy Hanson completely shut them down. Sure, sometimes it’s okay to give credit to the opposing pitcher, but it seems like instead of the Yanks admitting that they suck right now…they are just giving hat tips to the other team. Enough is enough. The Yankees can’t seem to figure out pitchers they have never faced before. This has been going on for a while now, and it’s not something new. They ground into doubleplays, they leave men on base, and they can’t knock in runs when they have runners in scoring postion.

As a team, the Yankees were 0-8 with RISP and they left 11 players on base. The offense couldn’t do anything tonight. Swisher went 0-5..Teixeira went 0-3…A-Rod went 0-4. That pretty much sums up how this game went.

The only highlight of this game was watching Phil Hughes pitch great out of the bullpen. He has been nothing less than spectacular. He threw two perfect frames and struck out two batters.

The Yankees now move 5GB in the East.  At least the Yankees will remain in first place in the WC. (If the Angels win tonight than they will share 1st)
