Yanks Run For the Bus, Lose 14-8

The Yanks had a dismal, woeful end to what was otherwise a very good road trip, losing the finale in Toronto 14-8 to split the four game set.  The Yanks committed four errors, misplayed several balls, and looked an all-around mess today.  All that hurt Mitre, who also reverted to Meat Tray and coughed up 11 runs 9 earned on 11 hits and 2 walks in just 4 1/3.  He matched the poor play of his defense, and with Melancon contributed to three bases-loaded walks in the fifth.  Yeah, it was that kind of game, even as the Yanks scored eight.

Jeter went 3-3, pushing his career total up to 2,718 and his season average up to .334.  Swish was 2-4 with his 29th double, his 24th homer and 21st on the road, and 3 RBI, giving him 75.  Matsui was 2-5 with 2 RBI, 76 for him on the year.  JD was 2-5, batting .289.  Melky his a three-run homer in the seventh, his 12th, with 56 RBI, batting .276.  Teixeira doubled, and Hairston singled–oh, and both had an error, as did Pena and Cano.

Ugly game.  No reason to waste more time on it. At least they didn’t waste the better relievers on this wretch. The Yanks are on the verge of giving back a game to Boston (up 6-1 on Chicago now) and the Angels (up 7-2 on KC).  The Yanks now sit 37 games above .500, and return for a long, 10-game home stand starting with 2 tomorrow afternoon against Tampa.
