Tie game

Now, despite his recent success, tonight clearly wasn’t so good for Javier Lopez.

Coming in to relieve Tim Wakefield, Lopez allowed a single to Jorge Posada, followed by a triple to Robinson Cano that went all the way to the wall in the gap in right-center field.

Both Posada and Alex Rodriguez, who was on first base when Lopez entered, scored on the triple, tying up the game. It’s now 4-4 in the seventh.

Prior to tonight, Lopez had allowed just one run in his last 15 2/3 innings (15 outings). He has a 1.08 ERA (three earned runs in 25 innings) in 28 games.
