G15: Yankees do it again, this time 4-2

I thought we made out better than the game looked. I also thought Helling was pulled too quickly.
I’m really tired today – I don’t feel up to writing commentary.
Commentary by Jim Meeks:
It’s the same song, the second verse. The Rangers just cannot beat the New York Yankees. They lost 4-2.
Wednesday, the Rangers and Rick Helling squared off against baseball’s premier pitcher, Roger Clemens.
Clemens was wild in the first inning. He uncharacteristically walked three hitters. Goodwin, who led off the game with a walk, stole second and third and came home on an error by catcher Joe Girardi. No hits, one run after one-half inning. The Rangers, however, couldn’t muster anything after this, except for a 4th inning solo homer by Todd Zeile (his 4th).
The Yankees really didn’t do much either, but they did hit 2 homers off of Helling. Helling has now given up a homer in each start this year – and two in each start but one.
Clemens settled down and wound up giving the Rangers just one earned run in 7+ innings.
One lone bright spot remains the pitching of Jeff Zimmerman, who threw zeroes for 2 innings. He’s been nothing short of remarkable.
The Rangers have lost 4 of their last 5 ball games, yet remain the leader in the A.L. West because the other teams are playing poorly also.
