Jerry Recco began his first update of the morning by rehashing everything that when on during the Yankees 5-2, rubber-game win over the Mariners yesterday afternoon in Seattle. Afterwards Boomer and Craig offered some analysis of Joe Girardi’s job in the dugout, saying the Yankee skipper ‘managed his ass off’.
The Mets lost their 10th game in their last 11 tries, falling to the 1st place Nationals 5-2.
