Marlins spoil Mariano Rivera homecoming, no-hit Yankees in Panama

“Sorry We Ruined Your Party” (Frenchmen LP search now under way!)

The celebration of Mariano Rivera took a historic turn of sorts, but not in the way the Yankees had hoped.

Four Marlins pitchers combined to no-hit the Yankees in front of a packed house at Rod Carew National Stadium, beating the Bombers, 5-0.

...“I don’t think it’s what we imagined,” Girardi said. “It wasn’t the historic night that I envisioned.”

...“We hit a few balls hard; they pitched extremely well,” Girardi said. “You see the first baseman make a diving play, you see the right fielder run the ball down; you never want to be no-hit. I don’t care what game it is, what level.”

Looks like the "Curse of the Canal" didn't last too long - or moved on to the Marlins today. Yankees won 7-0, Sabathia pitched 5 scoreless with 5 strikeouts, and no one got hurt. Still, best part of their trip was probably the Panama hats. Back in the USA, Tanaka pitched well again - 4.1 innings, 6 strikeouts, 2 walks and 1 earned run. I remain cautiously optimistic.
