Johnny Damon Injured!

Rain ManCorrespondent IJuly 4, 2008

If you thought this season for the Yankees hasn't gotten worse already, It has now. Johnny Damon injured his left shoulder in the third inning. Boston's Kevin Youkilis hits a fly ball to left field, Damon went back, leaped, and made the catch. Or so it seemed. The ball went to Damon's glove, and bounced out as he crashed to the wall, landed into the fence, and back in play. Damon got up, and picked up the ball, and threw to third, but Youkilis slid into third. It was ruled a two-run triple. Talk about a bizarre play. The Yankees lost the game 6-4.
