This one wasn't pretty. Getting destroyed by a dozen at home is not the way to open a weekend series.
- Hirok was horrendous last night. Couldn't locate anything and the Angels tuned him up for 8 runs on 10 hits in 4.2 IP.
- No offense to help him against C.J. Wilson. Brett Garder was the only player with multiple hits, Carlos Beltran had the only XBH, and the only run scored on a sac fly in the 6th.
- Bruce Billings took one for the team with 4 innings of long relief. He gave up 4 more runs.
- Yanks need a better showing this afternoon when Vidal Nuno and Hector Santiago get the start.
