Not A Hollywood Ending for Yankees In Los Angeles

In a quirky two-game series in Los Angeles, the Yanks lost game one 3-2 thanks to a Mark Ellis walk-off hit off Shawn Kelley in the 9th inning, scoring Andre Either.

Lyle Overbay drove in both Yankee runs, with a solo home run in the 2nd inning and a groundout later in the game.  This was a typical game for the Yanks this season, though.  Enough starting pitching and for the most part bullpen work, but not enough hits.

Pitchers Andy Pettitte and Zach Greinke cancelled each other out by each tossing 7 innings and giving up two runs.

Hanley Ramirez went 2-4 for the Dodgers with an RBI.

Derek Jeter went 0-4.  Alfonso Soriano scored the second Yankee run on Overbay’s groundout after doubling and advancing to third on a wild pitch (4th inning).

Game 2 is tonight.  It’s Hiroki Kuroda (10-6, 2.51) vs. Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 1.96). Kershaw won the National League CY Young award last year.
