Into the break

July 9, 2006: Tampa Bay 6, N.Y. Yankees 5

Bubba at the dugout rail, hoping in vain to get in the game.

An ugly loss. The Yanks went up 5-0 in the top of the 3rd, but were unable to hold it. Young Kris Wilson collapsed in the bottom of the 3rd, meaning a long row to hoe for the bullpen.

Bubba never got to play in this game. With the Yanks down by one by the 7th inning, Joe wanted to keep his best hitters in. Not only did Bubba not get in, Kevin Thompson, in right field, ended up being pulled in favor of Johnny Damon and Bernie Williams.

Just as well. This was such a downer of a game I'm glad he wasn't part of it.

Not a good note to on which to start the All-Star break. :-P
