It was all going so smoothily. Dan Giese was throwing a lovely game, matching John Lackey zero-for-zero. In fact, nobody scored through the first five innings (not entirely surprising in a day game after a night game in the post-greenie age). Then Alex Rodriguez and Jason Giambi hit back-to-back solo dingers in the sixth and the Yanks had some hope. But that promise was soon obliterated by a horrid performance from the bullpen as the Angels wacked, smacked and slapped the Yankees down once again, scoring eight in the eighth and that was that.
