A Familiar Theme for Yankees’ Hitters

Although the Yankees did put up five runs in last night’s loss, they were not the prettiest of runs aside from Brian McCann’s 3-run homer. We scored on another gift wrapped wild pitch by Chicago reliever Jake Petricka, and was followed up by Jacoby Ellsbury’s sac fly RBI (his first RBI since May 4). The real issue that seems to be a very familiar trend even going back thru...

Jacob Petricka Looks MLB Ready, At Least So Far

And so far, he's been pretty much as...

White Sox 4, Royals 3(12)

Jacob Petricka had been joking with White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper that they were just waiting for the right moment for the reliever to make his big league debut. How about runners on first and second and one out in a tied game in Kansas City? In extra innings, no less.
