Just a big bruise for Marte
Updating the previous story…
Thanks to that bullet off Ryan Howard’s bat, Yankees LHP Damaso Marte will be sore for the next few days, Joe Girardi said.
“I asked if he had Bud’s signature on there,” Girardi said, referring to Commissioner Bud Selig’s mark that adorns every Major League ball. “He said, ‘Just seams.'”
He was seen working out beneath the stadium later in the game, checking out the bruise in a mirror while applying ice.
“It’s OK because it’s cold now,” Marte said.
- Andy Pettitte’s line – 4 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K (55 pitches, 36 strikes) … Two hits for Brett Gardner, including a standup triple, and a 3-for-3 day for Francisco Cervelli today. … Cervelli took a foul tip off his mask but he’s fine. … Mariano Rivera will pitch Friday — at home, of course.
