…and is promptly gunned down at 2nd. Hey, it’s nice to finally have an average, even if it’s .043. Poor guys hasn’t had a Major League hit since 2002!
Went to the game last night – nice win. Abreu was in the 2 slot mainly because Giambi sat and the aforementioned Nieves played as Posada got a day off with a day-game today (Thursday). Jeter, looking as much like a 3-hitter as anyone can, had 3 ribbies to lead the way. Moose was sharp, you could tell quick he was on, even with the hiccup in the 3rd inning.
Mariano came in, he was throwing well even though he got interrupted twice by two numbskulls running onto the field…Mientkiewicz made some sharp plays at 1B, and continued his hitting streak – I’m warming up to him.
Believe it or not, the headline of the night:
MIKE MYERS GOT A LEFTHANDED HITTER OUT!!!! REJOICE!
Granted, it was a .230-hitting Wilkerson, but hey, we got to start somewhere…
Slightly off-topic question to those who happen to check this: Does anyone know what the song name/artist is for the tune the Stadium plays for Arod when he comes to bat? I’m usually up on all this, but this one eludes me…I’m hoping that someone who attends the games frequently this year may be able to help out…or someone who consistently jams to hip-hop…
