October 15, 2010 — The Yankees are losing, 5-0, but with their lineup — and with four more innings to work with — they are not out of the game.
With that said, this game — and more specifically the fifth inning through the ninth inning — will prove to be a great test for the Yankees bullpen. The task at hand for Joba Chamberlain, who replaced CC Sabathia at the start of the fifth inning, is to put a few zeroes on the scoreboard. If he can do that — and specifically that — the Yankees will have a chance to climb back into this game. But it really starts with Chamberlain and whoever replaces him in the later innings of the game. There is no margin for error tonight.
