Final score: New York 4, Pittsburgh 3. If youre reading the log after the conclusion of the game, youre going to want to start from the bottom and scroll to the top. Ill provide a recap later tonight.
3:45: Bautista pops to Cannizaro at second. Veras works the count to 0-2 on Kelly. Don flies out to Thompson in right-center to end the game. Another heartbreaker for the Bucs.
3:43: Doumit doubles into the gap, and de Caster is held up at third. Bautista up with two ducks on the pond and one out.
3:41: Rajai flies to Reese in left. Veras closed for AAA Columbus last year. Yurendell reaches on a bobble by NYY's third baseman. Lanny's resorted to using the names of Yankee legends for the PBP, as it's too hard to keep track of the changes. If you're scoring at home, Clete Boyer made that last error.
3:40: Jose Veras on to pitch for the Yankees. Rajai leads off for the Bucs.
