Yanks offense shut down again, lose series

For the second night a row, a Phillies pitcher came into town and held the Yankees bats silent. Last night it was Jamie Moyer. Tonight it was Kyle Kendrick — 22 years younger than Moyer — who put the Yankees offense to shame, pitching seven innings of one-run ball en route a 7-1 win.

Best of All: Robinson Cano. He notched his 31st multi-hit game with his RBI single in the sixth. Andy Pettitte pitched great (7 IP, 2 ER, 3 BB, 7 K), but the bullpen blew up in the ninth inning giving the offense no chance at a comeback.

Worst of All: Joba Chamberlain couldn’t record an out in the ninth. The Yankees Nos. 1-3 hitters combined to go 0-for-11. It was a rough night in the Bronx.

Coming Up: The Yankees host the Mets this weekend. That should be fun. The only problem is they are playing great baseball recently. I’ll have a series preview up tomorrow.
