Yanks Clobber Rays

Well, a Yankee starter finally gave up another earned run.  But it wasn't until the 7th inning of a laugher in Tampa.  Earlier, CC, who had benefited from both a double and triple play behind him, had given up an unearned run on a passed ball.   Soriano, McCann, and Solarte all homered.   Ellsbury tripled, and Roberts, back in the lineup,was a homer short of the cycle.  They still need to walk more, but it was a 10-2 final and there's not much to complain about.   Dellin Betances pitched a scoreless 8th and 9th.  The 8th was an adventure as PitchFX showed the home plate umpire squeezing Dellin into two walks.   But he got out of it,  then worked a 5 pitch 1K 9th.    He still has no ERA.   Yanks might be on a bit of a roll and Kuroda cannot drop the baton tomorrow.  Let's go, Yanks!

Solarte is looking to Wally Pipp someone.

I'm glad that Betances was able to pitch without Girardi pulling him prematurely.

Yeah, he was getting squeezed in the 8th, but he kept grinding.

I wonder who will pitch Sunday? They're saving Tanaka and Pineda for the Sox. Nuno?

Probably Nuno. I figure that's why he didn't come in today.
