Joba Shows His True Colors Once Again. Yanks Drop Game 4-3 to Royals

 Joba Chamberlain threw 91 pitches over 3 & 2/3 innings. I think you could guess how poor he pitched just from that. It wasn’t just the pitch count that got him out of the game, but he was all over the place and gave up hits left and right.

Joba’s pitching line was: 3.2IP 7H 3R 3ER 4BB 3K. He didn’t factor in the decision. Alfredo Aceves threw two scoreless frames in relief. Albaladejo recorded the last out of the 6th inning with ease. Marte came in the game in the 7th inning, surrendered a run and was yanked after recording only one out. Sergio Mitre recorded the last two outs of the inning. Phil Hughes and Mariano Rivera posted up scoreless frames in the 8th and 9th inning.

Derek Jeter led off the game with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning. He wound up going 2-for-2 on the game, picking up a run and an RBI. Nick Swisher hit a two-run home run shot in the 5th inning to tie the game up at 3-3.

The Yankee offense had a chance to win the game in the bottom of the 9th inning, with runners on 2nd and 3rd, but they failed to knock them in. It could have been another walk off win, but I guess Burnett wasn’t in the mood to make any pies tonight.
