Game 144: Yankees at Rays

9/13/2010

10:17: If the Yankees lose here in the 10th with Chad Gaudin, this is going to be the most intense Girardi post-game of the season. Gaudin has put runners on the corners with two outs. B.J. Upton is at the plate.

10:09: Gaudin in. And Yankee Universe collectively says, "What?"

10:06: Boone Logan in here in the 10th, trying to keep it scoreless.

9:53: We go to extras. Benoit in here in the 10th. Tremendous game here.

9:36: The Yankees couldn't do anything with Price. Now they are trying to get after Soriano in the ninth. CC probably is done with 119 pitches.

9:25: Yankees get a runner on, but Swisher can't do anything as the pinch-hitter. He also can't run. Bottom of the eighth.

9:07: After Longoria walk, Teixeira with a beautiful diving stop to his right to get Pena.

8:54: Price gives up a soft single to Cano and walks Teixeira, but A-Rod pops out toe second and Thames flies out to center.

8:43: CC with a another 1-2-3. We go to the seventh.

8:29: CC strikes out the side. To the sixth we go.

8:23: Posada caught stealing. Why he was going, I don't know?

8:21: Price had retired 13 in a row until he walked Posada with two outs in the fifth.

8:12: CC with another 1-2-3 inning.

8:04: Through four innings, Price has faced the minimum. He gave up a leadoff single and then the doubleplay eliminated Jeter.

7:55: Bartlett's lineout to Cano ends the inning. First threat of the night for either team.

7:53: Shoppach with a base hit and Upton with a walk, brings up Bartlett with a chance to do some damage.

7:42: Another strong inning from Price. He is mowing down the Yankees. But CC is doing the same.

7:35: CC brings the heat, two Ks, touch mid-90s. Pitcher's duel.

7:22: CC puts up his own zero in the first. This game has a good feel to it.

7:17: David Price gave up the single, but that was it. Good first for Price. Now, it is on CC.

7:12: Well, that didn't work out. Cano hits into DP.

7:11: Jeter with a blooper to right for the Yanks.

7:10: Here we go. Price vs. Jeter to begin.
