Derek Holland has, very quietly, made one hell of an appearance out of the bullpen. After inheriting a difficult situation from Tommy Hunter, Holland's thrown 3.2 shutout innings, allowing just two baserunners.
The seventh was Holland's latest masterpiece. Armed with a big lead, Holland got Brett Gardner to ground out to lead off, and then he had little trouble disposing of both Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter.
We're only in the eighth inning now, and it's only a four-run game, but already the crowd in New York is thinning out.
