Sir Sidney's luck runs out

It was only a matter of time before Sidney Ponson lost a game for the Yankees. In fact, judging by his atrociously high WHIP (1.72), it's amazing the Yankees went 4-0 in his four starts before tonight.

Against a potent Boston Red Sox offense, Ponson gave up 10 hits and seven earned runs in four innings. The Yankees should consider themselves lucky that they got four wins out of Ponson and move on.

For the record, Jarrod Washburn allowed one run over eight innings against the Toronto Blue Jays today. After giving up nine earned runs to the Tigers on May 25, Washburn is 3-3 with a 2.82 ERA in 11 starts.
