Great Start, Usual Finish

You know you're in trouble when you reserves get injured, on top of that, your pitcher can't hold his composure, the bullpen is crap, and errors are present
That's right, everything went wrong.
Jaret Wight (god no), took the mound and surprised the hell out of everyone with his solid start and earned his first quality start of the year, only to reach the seventh inning. Wright tossed six shutout ball only to give up three runs in the seventh, all the offense Texas would need.
On top of that, the bullpen allowed three more runs courtesy of Scott Erikson and a Robinson Cano error.
On to the injury chapter of this sad saga. Reserve outfielder Bubba Crosby strained his hamstring on a diving attempt and joined Carl Pavano, Gary Sheffield, Hideki Matsui and maybe soon Johnny Damon on the disabled list. What fun, Yankees spend money on hospital bills and salaries.
Yankees start a tough series against the Mets and the Red Sox with a weak line up and poor pitching and lose their second day game in a row.

Final Score:
Yankees 2, Rangers 6

Up Next:
Yankees @ Mets
Randy Johnson (5-4, 5.13 ERA) vs. Jeremi Gonzalez (0-0, 5.40 ERA)

Red Sox Update:
Sox didn't play, but gain the lead.
