“We’ll have to fight through this,” Mets manager Jerry Manuel said. “This is definitely a tremendous test for us.”
"I feel bad. I feel so bad,” Castillo said, about his committed error. “The ball was moving a little bit.”
Castillo finished the game going hitless, but managed to score a run. Mets outfielder, Carlos Beltran, scored two runs and had one hit with one RBI. He happened to get walked three times.
Mets starting pitcher, Livan Hernandez, pitched five innings and allowed six earned runs with seven hits. He finished with only one strike out.
Rodriguez couldn't believe his eye's. “I still don’t believe it,” Rodriguez said, (A-Rod's only one hit). “I couldn’t believe what I saw. I’ve never seen that before.”
Was A-Rod relieved that he wasn't going to get "killed" by the media for the pop up or because the Yankees got away with a close victory?
Yankees short stop, Derek Jeter and second baseman Robinson Cano, finished with two runs and two hits (including one home run) each. Jeter feels lucky and believes the Yankees got away with a steal. “Of course, we feel like we just stole one,” Jeter said. “We were lucky. That’s just the bottom line.”
First baseman, Mark Texeira, had two runs with one hit and only had one home run. Yankees starting pitcher, Joba Chamberlain, finished with two earned runs and five walks. He pitched four innings with three strike outs and only allowed one hit.
