Red Sox-Yankees Series Preview

Posted by Ace Staff on August 6th, 2009

The Boston Red Sox find themselves 2 1/2 games behind the New York Yankees for the AL East Division as they head to Yankee Stadium for this weekends four game series.  The first game is scheduled for tonight at 7:05 pm with John Smoltz and Joba Chamberlain as the projected starters.  Joba Chamberlin is 3-0 with a 0.83 ERA in his three starts since the All-Star break.  Collectively the Yankees have been on a tear since then, winning 14 of their last 19 games.  Despite their recent success New York still feels the most pressure going into this series, due to the fact that they are 0-8 against their rival opponent Red Sox.  Boston is coming off two disappointing losses at Tampa Bay, but manager Terry Francona states that it isn’t the best idea to be concerned. “If we’re concerned about this weekend, I don’t know if we’re going to put our best foot forward [Thursday],” Francona said. “We’re going in and playing a team that probably feels really good about themselves. I think we’re looking forward to it, like we always do.”  Even though the Rays series wasn’t what we had hoped for, we can still take in many positives going into this crucial series. Victor Martinez has been more than comfortable during his short time in a Boston uniform, going 10-for-21 from the plate with two doubles and a homer.  Martinez and the rest of the Sox line up will have to step up, knowing Jason Bay will be out for the first two games after aggravating his hamstring earlier this week.  Boston should be excited about the rotation going into the series.  Josh Beckett is scheduled for game two and Clay Buchholz and John Lester will take on games three and four.  Get ready for what should be a thrilling preview for a possible playoff series later this year.  Tickets for the Boston Red Sox are now available!

Cabrera Hits for the Cycle

Posted by Ace Staff on August 3rd, 2009

Center fielder Melky Cabrera became the 13th Yankee in their 100+ years of existence to hit for the cycle as New York defeated the White Sox 8-5 yesterday in Chicago. He started his day with a three-run homer to left off Mark Buehrle to give the Yanks a 3-0 lead.  In the fourth he led off with a double to right and later knocked a base hit in the fifth. In the seventh inning he worked the count full before hitting a frozen rope off the right field wall, bouncing to the left giving him just enough time to reach third base.

Everyone was pulling for him,” said Derek Jeter, who was present when Tony Fernandez hit for the cycle almost 14 years ago. “It’s difficult; you can’t just go up there and try to hit a triple.” The Yankees are scheduled to travel to Toronto for two games against the Blue Jays before hosting the Boston Red Sox for a four game series starting August 6th.

A-Rod & Texiera Go Yard, Yanks Win 7 Straight

Posted by Ace Staff on May 20th, 2009

The combination of Alex Rodriguez and Mark Texiera is proving to be a powerful one for the New York Yankees as the two sluggers again homered in the same game last night en route to a 9-1 Yankees victory over the Baltimore Orioles.  The win was the seventh straight for New York and their ninth win in eleven games.  C.C. Sabathia looked sharp in his fourth win of the year, giving up just three singles in seven innings. A-Rod’s return to the lineup has really helped out the stuggling Mark Texiera. Since A-Rod’s return, Texiera has homered six times.  On Monday night Tex and A-Rod went back to back for the first time ever despite playing together in Texas for a few years. Wednesday night was the fourth straight game with a home run for Alex Rodriguez.  The recent win streak for the Yankees has tightened things up in the AL East. New York trails the first place Toronto Blue Jays by 3.5 games and their rival Red Sox by just 1 game.  Toronto is currently playing at Boston.  The Yankees will host Baltimore for two more before they welcome in the World Series Champion, Philadelphia Phillies for the start of interleague play on May 22.  New York Yankees tickets are available now for all games.

Tempers Flare as Sox Sweep Yankees Again

Posted by Ace Staff on May 6th, 2009

The Boston Red Sox have run their season record against the Yankees to 5-0 with a rain-soaked win in NY on Tuesday night. Joba Chamberlain was roughed up for four runs in the first inning, before settling down and striking out 12 through 5 2/3. Josh Beckett gave up 3 runs through 6 innings of work, all of which came on a monster home run by former Boston centerfielder Johnny Damon. The Sox got another run in the 9th on a bases-loaded walk charged to Mark Melancon. Boston relievers Hideki Okajima and Takashi Saito combined for 3 perfect innings to preserve the lead and give the Sox a 5-0 run against their rivals. After hitting a 3-run homer to give the Sox the early lead, Sox left fielder Bay was hit with a pitch in the 5th. Chamberlain, who has shown a tendency to hit first-baseman Kevin Youkilis, will not be penalized for the HBP. The win gives the Sox a 17-10 record, while the Yankees fell to .500 on the year at 13-13. Centerfielder Jacoby Ellsbury left in the 4th inning with tightness in his right hamstring, but is not expected to miss significant playing time. The Sox return home on Wednesday night to face the Cleveland Indians, who currently reisde at last place in the American League Central division. Boston Red Sox tickets are available now!

Swisher, Chamberlain Give Yanks the Win

Posted by Ace Staff on April 30th, 2009

The New York Yankees survived a near-collapse of their bullpen to notch a 8-6 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night. Joba Chamberlain showed why New York wants him to be a starter; allowing only one run on three hits and three walks through 7 innings, while racking up 6 k’s. Nick Swisher was the offensive catalyst for the Yanks, racking up 4 RBI on two homers and helping to chase Detroit starter Rick Porcello. The Yanks didn’t have it easy after Chamberlain was done, though. The Tigers mounted an impressive comeback, scoring four runs off of reliever Jonathan Albaladejo, as well as getting a huge two run homer off of Mariano Rivera by Curtis Granderson. Detroit fell short in the end, and the Yankees won their second consecutive game. On Thursday night the Yankees host the Angels for the beginning of a three-game set. New York Yankees tickets are available now.

Yankees Win with Cabrera Walk-off

Posted by Ace Staff on April 23rd, 2009

Melky Cabrera belted two homers for the Yankees, including the deciding home run in the bottom of the 14th to win over the Oakland A’s 9-7 last night at the new Yankee stadium. Cabrera has been playing well lately for the Yanks and hopes this will keep his confidence going. “I knew it was gone and I knew that we won,” said Cabrera. “I was just trying to get on base and make good contact. I’ve worked really hard to get to where I am right now.” The Yankees bullpen were the real heroes of the night, pitching 7 1/3 innings with out allowing any runs.  C.C. Sabathia struggled from the mound allowing seven runs in 6 2/3 innings.  New York was able to get enough run production to tie it up as Jose Veras relieved Sabathia with three scoreless innings.  “I feel real happy,” Veras said. “I let my team down the first game of the season here at Yankee Stadium, and I knew I had to do something good for my team to pick up the bad. I feel really good today.” The Yankees will next make their way to the legendary Fenway Park to square off against the Boston Red Sox for three weekend games in a row.  Tickets for the New York Yankees are now available.

Cleveland Destroys Yankees 22-4

Posted by Ace Staff on April 20th, 2009

Chien-Ming Wang struggled last Saturday as he gave up eight runs on eight hits in just one inning, resulting in a 4-22 loss for New York.  The Indians lit up the Yanks in the second inning scoring 14 runs with 3 home runs.  The line up finished the game with 25 hits to the Yankees 7.  Wang has an 0-3 pitching record so far this season, serving up 23 runs in 6 total innings. Johnny Damon had some less than reassuring words for his starting pitcher. “He’s making it real tough on our bullpen right now.  We have to count on guys in our ‘pen to go seven or eight innings. We have six losses on the year right now, and he’s got three of them.”  He continued to criticize Wang, saying “in all three of those games, we’ve been blown out and we’ve had to go to our bullpen, so maybe our bullpen’s not sharp the following days. I don’t know what more to say, but hopefully he can figure it out, because it’d be tough to keep on going like this.” The Yankees came back on Sunday with a 7-3 win over the Indians, but it still doesn’t nearly make up for one of the worst losses in their 108 year history. The Yanks will next make their way to Oakland to face the A’s before traveling to Boston to face the Red Sox for three weekend games. New York Yankees tickets are available now!

Red Sox, Yankees Off To Slow Starts

Posted by Ace Staff on April 14th, 2009

You don’t often see the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees at the bottom of the AL East standings, but one week into the 2009 season, that’s exactly where they are.  At 2-5 and 3-4 resepectively the Red Sox and Yankees have struggled out of the gate but no one is throwing in the towell just yet.  It is afterall just the first week of the season.  By the time the two teams meet later this month they could be battling for 1st place.  Let’s hope. The Red Sox continue to struggle at the plate. The A’s defeated Boston last night 8-2 in Oakland.  Starting Pitcher, Jon Lester also struggled for the Red Sox and dropped to 0-2 on the season.  Kevin Youkilis did get Boston off to a nice start with a solo homer in the first but the Sox never gained any momentum.  The Yankees had an even uglier night in Tampa. The Rays raised their 2008 AL Championship banner to the rafters and celebrated with their bats, knocking the Yankees around for a 15-5 final.  Chien-Ming Wang surrended 8 runs in one inning of work for New York, dropping to 0-2 on the year.  The Yankees will finish up their series in Tampa before returning to New York for Thursday’s home opener and the regular season debut for the new Yankee Stadium.  New York Yankees tickets are available for all 2009 games. The Red Sox will return home on Friday, April 17 to host the Baltimore Orioles. Red Sox tickets are available for this and all games.

Yankees Lose 2 in a Row

Posted by Ace Staff on March 24th, 2009

After winning eight straight spring training games, the New York Yankees have lost their last two against the Tampa Bay Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies.  The Yankees pitching has not been strong as of  late, letting up five runs to the Rays and eight to the Phillies.  Raul Ibanez hit 3-for-3 for Philadelphia, and Eric Bruntlett went 3-for-4.  Matt Stairs and Miguel Cairo added homeruns for extra run support. Chien-Ming Wang allowed five hits, three runs and two walks in five plus innings.  Though the numbers don’t look pretty, Yankees manager Joe Girardi was happy with the outing.  “Each inning that went on, it seemed like his sinker got better,” he said. “That’s a good sign.  He was down a lot in the zone.  That was clearly, to me, his best outing” Right field has been an open spot for New York since the start of spring training.  Girardi has recently stated that Xavier Nady is looking like the better candidate over Nick Swisher with two weeks left.  New York will meet the Boston Red Sox one last time before the start of the 2009-2010 regular season.  The game will take place in Tampa, Florida tonight at 7:15 p.m. New York Yankees tickets are available now!
