The Kid's AlWright


Visitors: 141

No, I’m not talking about fan-favorite David Wright of the New York Mets; I’m talking about Jared Wright, that “other" Wright who was despised of by all Yankees fans last season, but is slowly gaining acceptance in the Bronx. In the rubber game of a three-game series, and in order to salvage a .500 road trip against the weak NL East, Jared Wright gave the Yankees five innings of shutout ball, striking out six guys in the process, which helped the Yankees coast to a 5-0 victory. Wright managed to work out of trouble a few times in his five innings of work, as he walked four batters, but he wiggled his way out of trouble and gave the Yankees a decent start. All we need from this guy now is for him to give us some innings, so that our bullpen isn’t dead come September. I don’t necessarily understand why he was pulled because he only threw 84 pitches; Michael Kay and Ken Singleton made reference to Utley, Abreu, and Burrell coming up in the lineup in the sixth, but why won’t they let him challenge these premier hitters? Are the Yankees going to continually pull Wright and other pitchers in big spots, semi-deep into games?

It was a big win for the Yankees, and a good start for Wright. The Yankees needed this game so that they’d be coming back home on a two-game winning streak, and a .500 road-trip. Thursday is a much needed day off for the Bombers, before they embark upon a three-game, weekend home series against the Florida Marlins, who are just coming off a nine game winning streak. Many fans may want to overlook the Marlins, but they have been hot as of late, and Joe Girardi would love nothing more than to upset the heavily favored Yankees, in Girardi’s old stomping grounds. After the Marlins, the Yankees are looking at a struggling Braves team, and then a highly anticipated series against the Mets, in which the Yankees will be looking to avenge their series loss to the Mets in May.

Interesting notes from this game: Alex Rodriguez’s seven-game hitting streak ended; he went 0/2 with two walks and a HBP. After a 5/5 night at the plate, Bernie Williams went 0/4, leaving two runners on base. Johnny Damon was a perfect 3/3 with one RBI, raising his average up to .299. Jason Giambi continues to struggle as he went 0/4 with 3 K’s, leaving four runners on base in the process.
