4/28 – Yankees at Orioles

Hello again from Baltimore, where the sun is setting and the Yankees have already taken an early 2-0 lead against Orioles right-hander Jeremy Guthrie. 

Some quickie notes as we progress in-game:
Curtis Granderson entered play Wednesday hitless in his last 17 at-bats, the second-longest hitless stretch of his career, behind a 21 at-bat drought in 2006.
 
“For the most part, it’s a couple of games here where I haven’t been able to get on base the way I’ve wanted to,” Granderson said. “You just kind of go with it and realize sometimes you’re going to hit the ball hard and it’s going to go right at people. Things will turn themselves around.”
Nick Johnson was back in the lineup on Wednesday at Camden Yards, having missed three consecutive starts with lower back stiffness. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he thought about dropping Johnson – hitting just .135 – in the order and keeping Brett Gardner in the two-hole, but ultimately returned to his Opening Day lineup.
“It was something that we talked about,” Girardi said. “Nick is a proven hitter. I think it’s important that you stick with your guys. You know that he’s going to come around. You try to go with a set lineup.”
RHP Chan Ho Park had his right hamstring examined with a MRI on Wednesday in Tampa, Fla., which revealed the same low-grade strain. …RHP Alfredo Aceves would not be available Wednesday after throwing two innings and 31 pitches on Tuesday.
Seven Double-A Trenton Thunder players participated Wednesday in a Habitat for Humanity home build in East Trenton, N.J. RHP Grant Duff, OF Austin Krum, RHP D.J. Mitchell, RHP David Phelps, RHP Ryan Pope, IF Justin Snyder and RHP Eric Wordekemper helped install lattice on the back porch and worked on the ceiling of the front porch.

This mauling was bound to happen sooner or later. The Orioles are not a good team.
