Yankees Suffer a Second Straight Devastating Loss

Game date- 6/18/06

Yankees- 2, Nationals- 3

W- Majewski (3-2)
L- Wang (7-3)

Yankee manager, Joe Torre, watches the ballgame.

Yankee Starting Lineup:

CF- Damon, 0-5
LF- Cabrera, 0-3 ( BB, R)
SS- Jeter, 2-4 ( 1B, 2B, SB, R)
1B- Giambi, 0-4
3B- Rodriguez, 2-2 ( 1B, 2B, 2 BB, RBI)
C- Posada, 0-1 ( 2 BB, sac fly, RBI)
2B- Cano, 0-4
RF- Williams, 1-4 (1B)
P- Wang, 0-4

Yankee Pitchers:

Wang- 6H, 3R, 2BB, 2K, 8.1IP


Chien-Ming Wang pitched masterfully today over 8 innings, but gave up the walk-off two-run homer to National's Ryan Zimmerman in the bottom of the ninth. He was two outs away from picking up a complete game victory, but came up just short. Fortunately, none of the Yankee bullpen was used today, so everyone should be rested for tomorrow's game aginst the Phillies.

The Yankees only had five hits- two for A-Rod ( a single and an RBI double) and two for Jeter ( a single and a double). Robinson Cano snapped his 15-game hitting streak, going 0 for 4.
