Pitching: Andy Pettitte LHP vs. Glen Perkins LHP


This is the final game between the two teams in this series, the yankees have won all 3 in walkoff fashion.

...back with updates later...

Update 7:13: it's already 1-0 twins in the top of the first, joe mauer singled to center scoring brendan harris.

Update 7:15: 2-0 twins, pettitte's got nothin.

Update 7:26: Mark Teixeira has arrived, 3 run homerun... 3-2 yankees.

Update 7:28: 4-2 Yankees, back to back homeruns by mark teixeira and A-Rod

Update 7:41: Yankees hammered Glen Perkins, it's now 6-2 and he is being taken out of the game. It's still the bottom of the first by the way.

Update 7:53: Ken Singleton said Delmon Harris about 5 times... it's Delmon Young you fool!

Update 8:03: is anyone else sick of the yankees calling mauer and morneau the M&M boys? i'm pretty sure that title belonged to Mantle and Maris... but... i guess it's being used freely now.

Update 8:21: i wonder if David Cone uses the 'jerking off' term today to describe a pitcher.

Update 8:29: the yankees have been playing some insanely good defense today.

Update 9:15: i'm a little curious as to what happened to this umps strike zone over the last half inning... the pitch that jeter struck out on was a foot off the plate, and the one that damon struck out on clearly broke around the plate.

Update 9:27: Girardi is going to bring in Jose Veras with runners on base and a 2 run lead... this is a recipe for disaster.

Update 9:32: such a dumb move by Girardi.

Update 9:33: Andy Pettitte looked terrible today... but it's the middle of the 7th now and the yankees have the lead 6-4.
