Farnsworth Surrenders Lead in the Ninth

Game date- 6/01/06

Yankees- 6, Tigers- 7

W- Rodney (4-1)
L- Farnsworth (1-3)

Kyle Farnsworth recorded just one out in the ninth inning, but surrendered the tying and winning runs to the Detroit Tigers.

Yankee Starting Lineup:

CF- Damon, 1-5 (2B, R)
LF- Cabrera, 1-4 (1B, BB, R)
DH- Giambi, 2-5 ( 1B, RBI, R, solo HR [14] )
3B- Rodriguez, 0-3 (2BB, R)
C- Posada, 1-3 (2B, 2BB, R, 3RBI)
2B- Cano, 4-5 (1B, 1B, 1B, 2B, R)
1B- Phillips, 3-4 (1B, 1B, 2B, sac, fly, RBI)
RF- Long, 0-5
SS- Cairo, 0-4

Yankee Pitchers:

Wang- 8H, 5R, 3BB, 2K, 4IP
Rasner- H, K, 1.2IP
Myers- H, 0IP
Proctor- BB, 4K, 2.1IP
Farnsworth- 3H, 2R, BB, .1IP


Chien Ming Wang pitched a very rough four innings, giving up 5 runs on 8 hits and 3 walks. Rasner and Proctor were brilliant in relief, striking out a total of five batters. But Kyle Farnsworth could not hold the Tigers down in the ninth. Rivera could not pitch because of a back spasm, so Farnsworth was the temporary closer.

Jason Giambi hit his 14th homer of the season, a solo homer that gave the Yanks a three run lead in the 5th. Cano had four hits- three singles and a double- and Phillips had three hits, driving in two.
