Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
August 12, 2006: N.Y. Yankees 5, L.A. Angels 2
Hallelujah. Those pesky Angels went down today. Though it was really more a meltdown on the mound for them than anything we did. Escobar had one really bad inning, giving up five runs on two homers (one by Cano, one by Damon). That was the second inning, and he ended up going six, so it really was a fluke more than anything. He served up meatballs for one inning, and that was enough.
Tomorrow it's Wang on the mound. He's always better at home, so I'm optimistic about our chances of winning this series. Even against the Halos, our nemesis. The only team to have a winning record against us in the Torre era.
And we need it, because the rumors of the Red Sox demise have been greatly exaggerated. They came from behind to pull out an OT win against the Orioles today, so they're still two games back.
The Clippers play the Richmond Braves again tonight, at 7pm. Bubba is in the lineup. He is playing RF and batting 7th tonight. You follow the game online here.
