Kei Igawa got the start for the Yanks, and didn't pitch too well. He lasted just 3.1 innings and gave up four runs on five hits and three walks. If Igawa had pitched well he probably would have made the 25-man roster as a long man, but as of now that's still up in the air. ... Jeff Karstens pitched 1.1 innings, and gave up no runs on one hit, but left the game with what appeared to be a hamstring injury. ... Scott Patterson continues to dominate. He pitched a perfect 1.1 innings. ... Ross Ohlendorf and Brian Bruney both pitched scoreless innings.
NOTES: (Thank you Derek for bringing this to my attention.)
