Game 131: Yankees @ Orioles, 8/31/09

Below, as per Pete Abraham, are tonight’s lineups. A-Rod sits to get a breather, with Hairston taking his place.  Pettite looks to keep the winning rolling, with the Yanks coming off an impressive sweep of Chicago this weekend in The Bronx.  New York also looks to go a season-high 35 games over .500.  Enjoy the game, everyone.

  1. What is it with O’s fans hate of Tex he wasn’t signing there.

  2. KingSwisher gives Yankees the lead with a solo HR

  3. Nick, they think he would have given Baltimore a “hometown discount” since he was born near there.

    ….and I have bridge in Brooklyn to sell them.

  4. Damn I hate that I was getting excited for a sec then for Andy no hitter gone and perfect game.

  5. Well credit to the O’s fans for that standing ovation for Andy

  6. Yeah, the Baltimore fans thinking that Teixeira would sign there is silly, as is their continued petulance.

    Too bad to see how the perfecto was lost, on Hairston’s error, then the single. Hairston looked like he was going to throw up in the dugout, and I’m proud of the team’s reaction, with JD and Jeter patting him on the shoulder, and Girardi and later Pettite comforting him. The team’s camaraderie is admirable.

    You’re right, Nick, and I think there are a good many Yanks fans there. There typically are many, and they made a good load moan when they thought Pettite had a K on a 1-2 pitch in the seventh.

  7. Agreed Jason its great to see there all look like great team mates.

  8. Take it back the fans booed Hairston idiots when he came to his AB.

    GREAT job by Andy.

  9. even better were the kind words from andy to hairston after the game ( see LoHud)

    new things to love about the 2009 yankees every day.

    except the damn bunts…
