Waiting out the rain
Nothing says the Fourth of July like the Yankees, the Red Sox, and a rain delay!
We’re set to start back up at around 5:45 p.m. ET. Seems I may have been a bit off today – I actually did believe Darrell Rasner was going to throw a good one on the board. That didn’t work out quite so well, with Mike Lowell’s three-run homer so far standing as the difference.
The Yankees do have six outs remaining but, once again, the offense has been underwhelming. So much for that meeting — if this score holds, they’ll be stuck looking at the bases-loaded, two-out situation they missed in the fourth inning and the bases-loaded, one-out jam Hideki Okajima and Manny Delcarmen pitched out of in the seventh.
Hope you’re enjoying your Fourth regardless of what transpires here in the Bronx — enjoy some burgers and hot dogs off the grill, and maybe down a cold one or two before the fireworks show tonight.
