On and on and on

Can't disagree with Joe Girardi on this:

"Just kind of a weird night," he said after the Yankees' 4-3 loss tonight, a game that featured two rain delays.

It was 4-3 before the second delay, which lasted 2 hours, 10 minutes and it stayed that way when the game resumed.

“It seems every year there’s one of these games,” Lance Berkman said. “You’re going to sit around forever and try to reestablish momentum.”

Dustin Moseley wasn't nearly as good as he was in his previous start, Sunday night against Boston, as he allowed four runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings. He was better after the first delay, touched up for only one big hit. Unfortunately for him, it was the biggest one of the night, Billy Butler's opposite-field home run off the foul pole in right.

"When it came off the bat, I definitely thought it was going to be foul," Moseley said.

As for Moseley's start, which included the three second-inning runs, Girardi said the pitcher "didn't have his breaking ball going." 

Moseley agreed.

"I was just missing up with everything,” Moseley said. “Everything was elevated early on.”

*** This, word for word, from the notes: "Boone Logan celebrated his birthday on August 13, but didn't make an appearance in the game until August 14."

*** Mark Teixeira (1-for-4) has hit .312 with 13 homers, 12 doubles and 38 RBI since July 1.

And with that, back later today as Phil Hughes (13-5, 3.92) takes on Sean O'Sullivan (1-3, 5.05).
