Moose Still Waiting

Today’s game was Mike Mussina’s third regular-season start since picking up career win number 199, and he’ll need to wait at least one more start before he gets number 200. The Yankees gave Mussina a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the sixth inning, but then he fell apart completely.

Jose Cruz Jr. opened the inning with a very long home run to right field, and then Tino Martinez, Julio Lugo and Toby Hall hit consecutive doubles to put Tampa Bay ahead 5-3. Paul Quantrill came on to retire the next three hitters on three pitches, but it wasn’t soon enough to save Mussina.
