Phelps holds Rays down as Yanks take series finale with 4-3 win

The Yankees were unsure what they were going to get out of David Phelps in today’s game, but the results were quite delightful as the Yankees were able to snap a 9 game skid while playing at Tropicana Field with a 4-3 win.

Although David Phelps went 4.1 IP he was very impressive by allowing only 1 run on 2 hits and 8 strikeouts. In total, the Yankees had 16 strikeouts in the ball game (8 by Phelps, 3 by Cody Eppley, 2 by Boone Logan, 2 by David Robertson & 1 by Rafael Soriano). If Phelps were more stretched out then he could have went longer in the game and had probably have been more dominant as the game went along.

In the beginning of the game, the Yankees were having trouble with David Price who only gave up 1 run on 4 hits in 7 innings, but in the 8th the Yankees old buddy Kyle Farnsworth was able to bail them out of losing 10 straight at Tropicana Field by leaving the bases loaded before getting lifted for Jake McGee. Robinson Cano scored 2 runs off of Jake McGee (Both runs charged to Farnsworth).

The Yankees have an off-day tomorrow but on Friday they are playing in Fenway Park in a 4 game series (2 games on Saturday) vs. the Red Sox. Make sure you drink a lot of coffee for this series folks! You’re going to need it.

  1. Ken……. Look at this video…..see how still and relaxed his swing is…..then compare to the game where his high leg kick seems to throw off his timing…..

  2. Fish, matt, ken….Mo is the best ….but believe it or not….there is one Yankee who has allowed less career HRs per 9 innings ….guess who it is? Hint: he was a reliever.

  3. No but very close.

  4. Ken – help Matt out with the TWASP quiz:

    What Yankee has a better career HR per inning number than Mo…… A reliever!

  5. 1970′s

    Ken – you should know this!
