Boof didn't do so well tonight. He went 4 1/3 innings, giving up six earned runs, walking two, and only striking out one. An A-Rod 2-run home run in the first started things off, and the Yankees tacked on another run in the second. Boof then found himself and sent New York down in order during the 3rd and 4th innings, but the 5th proved impossible. A series of hits and errors resulted in two more runs, and then Jesse Crain was kind enough to allow one of Boof's stranded runners to score.
Hey. It was the Yankees. It was the second start of the season.
And it's not as though Boof pitched out of character - when he loses, he loses by the long ball.
EDIT: Sure enough, the Twins didn't work a miracle, and Boof picked up the loss to slide to 0-1.
