Bombers Blanked in Baltimore

The only saving grace about this game was that it lasted under 3 hours.

The road trip from hell continued on Wednesday as the O's shut out the Yanks 4-0 in Baltimore.  The offense is sputtering, Roger Clemens may have injured himself and the Yankees have dipped three games under .500 on the year.

The Good:

 Brian Bruney.  How bad was it for the Yanks?  The only shining spot was Brian Bruney's seventh inning performance.  Was it spectacular?  No.  Was it meaningful?  No.  Will it be remembered?  No.  Bruney retired the side in order on 7 pitches.  His totals: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K.  Big deal.

The Bad:

Roger Clemens.  Clemens put up zeros for the first five innings, but fell into trouble in the sixth.  The Rocket did something to himself two pitches into that inning.  Stevie Donohue ran out and checked on him, but Clemens assured everyone that he was fine.  It looked he was flexing his arm, but what the hell do I know?  Well, the Orioles jumped on Clemens for four runs including a three-run homer off the bat of Aubrey Huff.  Game over.  Clemens fell to 1-3 on the season with this: 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 0 K, 1 HR.  Clemens failed to strikeout a batter for the first time in 200 starts.

The Ugly:

The Yankee offense.  The Yankees had one runner in scoring position for the entire game.  ONE!  And it happened with one out in the ninth. The Yanks managed only five hits and struck out a total of 10 times.  Bronx Bombers, indeed.

Chien-Ming Wang will go in the series finale against hard-throwing Daniel Cabrera.  Wang is the ace of the staff and he really needs to pick up the squad.

Let's hope the Yanks aren't too far gone.
