Game #2: New York Yankees 3, Philadelphia Phillies 1

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The World Series by chinmusic on Friday 30 October 2009 at 8:26 am

Pedro Martinez gave the Phillies six solid innings last night as he gave up three earned runs while striking out 8 Yankee Batters. But he gave up solo homers to Mark Teixeira and Hideki Matsui which was more than enough offense for the Yankees. Chan Ho Park, Scott Eyre and Ryan Madson worked a combined 2 shutout innings to keep the Phillies within range of the Yankees last night. The Phillies could only muster six hits against the Yankees last night. Raul Ibanez was the only player on the Phillies with more than one hit last night as he was 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and 1 RBI. Matt Stairs got the start at DH for the Phillies last night and he was 1 for 4 with 1 RBI. Carlos Ruiz (double), Jayson Werth and Shane Victorino all had 1 hit apiece in this game for the Phillies. Ryan Howard had a night to forget however as he was 0 for 4 with 4 whiffs. The Phillies are now tied up 1-1 in the World Series with the games shifting to Philly.

    It was great to see Pedro Martinez on the big stage again. Although they didn’t win, Pedro showed he still has what it takes to compete at the highest level. Pedro’s best stuff is long behind him, but he showed the strong determination and competitiveness that has driven him to success throughout his career. Pedro is a future Hall of Famer and that may have been the last time baseball fans got to see Pedro Martinez on the mound. This series has not disappointed so far and I am looking forward to game three in Philly.

    I don’t think this was Pedro’s last game. With the way he has pitched for the Phillies he has shown that he has a lot left in the tank. He will likely start Game #6 at Yankee Stadium in the Phillies win Game #5. I think a few teams will be interested in signing him over the winter with the Phillies being #1 on that list.

    The Yankees have achieved a level of success in the world of baseball that is so gaudy, so well known, and so storied picking a handful of players to call their all time best is no easy task. They should be always competitive enough to keep pace with the others. I used to attend their games even their tickets get sold out. Luckily I fond , now I’ll before compare prices before getting tickets. Go Yankees!!
