Today’s matchup with the Yankees was a classic pitchers duel. It was awesome to watch the M’s breakup Ted Lilly’s no-hitter in the eighth inning to take the lead and great to see Freddy Garcia finally pitch the way he’s supposed to and go a full 8 innings of shut out ball. Two 1-0 wins this week. Wild.
I don’t know where the Yankees found Lilly, but if he keeps pitching this well Andy Pettitte and Sterling Hitchcock may have a hard time getting back in the rotation. Of course that’s assuming the Yank’s start giving the poor guy some run support. The crazy thing is that Lilly’s record is now 0-2 while his ERA is a mere 1.35!
