OK, I admit. That was a very bad and very predictable pun. But it sums up Chase Wright's major league debut:
5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3BB, 3 K
Not Cy Young-caliber, but he didn't implode the way Sean Henn did when he made the Double-A to major league jump two years ago. And if the Yankees can hold a five-run lead, he'll get the win.
Now the question is whether he gets another start on Sunday night at Fenway against the Red Sox. You would think he's earned it, and it's not like the Yankees have a lot of other options anyway. But we'll see.
Also, I learned this evening that Scott Patterson will make a spot start in the second game of the doubleheader tomorrow, assuming they play it. It will be his first start in two years.
