G116: Rangers drop opener to the Yankees, 7-3

Well, it’s the Yankees. We always lose to them, and in a season like this, I expect to get swept in all the games we play (except possibly tomorrow’s game – as David Cone is pitching almost as bad as Jose Lima this season). Anyway, the Rangers didn’t disappoint.
We were losing 9 pitches into the game 2-0. Actually, I felt Matt Perisho pitched OK the first couple, but couldn’t hold it past the 5th. We were only losing 3-0 after 5, and then it was 6-0. At that point, I stopped watching the game, and watched a couple of Star Trek episodes that had piled up on my TiVo. I tuned in late to see that we had scored 3 runs, but as usual, it wasn’t enough.
We’re now 0-9 in our last 9 games against the Bronx bombers, including last year’s sweep in the playoffs. :(
