EWB's Double Play (A Look At The Baseball Teams In NYS)


If I told you after four games in Major League Baseball, two for the Bronx Bombers and two for the Amazings, one New York team has won two games, with their closer having two saves and the other has let up fifteen runs, who would you think is undefeated and who has not won a game yet? Well, for most I would venture to say: “try again”…

The New York Yankees, who have played two out of three against divisional foes the Tampa Bay Rays are still without a win on the season. In the first two match ups their bats have been active, scoring a dozen runs, but their arms on the mound have allowed 15, and so the 0 and 2 record.

The Yanks will finish out this road series against the Rays tomorrow, with Hughes on the mound while the opposition will send Hellickson to the rubber. The game will be on TBS with first pitch being at 1:40 p.m. EST. Interesting to see how many come to the game on Easter Sunday.

On the other hand the New York Mets have taken two from their divisional rivals Atlanta Braves. Both games have been won on the mound as the Mets have just scored five runs in the 18 innings, but have allowed just a pair in that same amount. With the two wins closer Frank Francisco has two saves after two outings.

The Mets will finish out this home series against the Braves tomorrow putting Niese on the hill, who will go against Minor. It will be interesting to see how many people go to the game, 1:10 p.m. EST starting time, on Easter Sunday.
