Pictures from Orioles series & other information
First off let me start off by saying I have been slacking for the last two series. But, let me say nothing major happened against the lackluster teams of the Baltimore Orioles and Houston Astros.
Alex Rodriguez was forced to come out of the season finale against the Orioles due to what he called a sore groin. It was later diagnosed as tendentious in his right hip flexor, the same side in which Rodriguez had surgery on his right hip last season. Consequently Arod sat out the entire Houston series and skipped the series opener against the Phillies on Monday. Rodriguez returned last night to the game as the designated hitter. It is not known when he will take the field.
In the Houston series, a Yankees sweep, Jorge Posada returned to catching and his stroke returned on the offensive side of the ball, hitting two grand slams in two games. Phil Hughes also earned his ninth win of the season on Saturday. Andy Pettitte also continued his masterful season, earning his eighth win. With his start against the Astros on Friday, Pettitte can now boast that he's pitched against every team in the Major Leagues except of course for the New York Yankees.
Now I'll leave this post with some pictures I personally took at Camden Yards, when Phil Hughes beat the Orioles last Tuesday. The final score of the game ended up being 12-7. The highlight of the game was when New York scored six runs in the seventh inning.
So as promised here are the pictures.
