王建民經過5月份的六連不勝低潮,
不但球迷們擔心,
連王建民自己也不免著急了起來,
好不容易,在今早(6/11)對運動家的比賽中,拿下了第七勝…

這是官網在阿民先發之前的封面照片和報導,
官網也寫著阿民自從5月2日之後就沒拿過勝投了…
翰仔還是和往常一樣,先把官網的照片先抓下來,
並且還有預感,這場球應該會贏,可以用到照片…

這是比賽剛開始的時候,電視抓下來的畫面,
最下面一行寫的是最近四場比賽,王建民的失分都在5分以上…

之前幾場沒拿下勝投的場次,
雖說4、5月份的洋基打擊積弱不振,沒有辦法給王建民強大的火力支援,
但是王建民在之前的六場比賽中,控球失去以往的水準也是事實,
每場比賽無論是保送次數或是失分都失去以往的壓制力。
慢慢的,成績影響心理,心理又影響表現和成績,成績又再度影響心理…如此惡性循環…
所以造成了之前的六連不勝的低潮…
不過,進入5月下半之後,
天氣漸漸熱了起來,洋基打擊的狀況也慢慢有了起色…
這場比賽也是一樣,
一局上半就經由A-ROD和吉胖連續的安打拿下兩分,
讓王建民吃下一顆定心丸~

當然,一定要來看一下台灣的官網,下的標題是什麼~

還是一樣的大字體加上影像的合成囉~
這一勝等得真久丫~

這張是比賽結束後,小卡和隊友掌擊慶賀的狀況…
翰仔發現…小卡真的是蠻愛演的(哈)
這場比賽小卡表現的也不錯喔~
9局上的SOLO HOMERUN幫阿民的勝投多添了1分保險分~

這場比賽為什麼翰仔下的標題是「險」呢?
雖說因為沒辦法看實況的比賽(在辛勤的上班中…),
不過從後來的報導中,
知道在阿民7.1局的投球局數裡,每局首位打者都上壘包~
翰仔光是看官網的文字報導,
局局都緊張到一個不行@@
好在,滾地球投手的好朋友 – 「雙殺」也出現了四次,
讓阿民「關關難過關關過,局局危險局局闖」,
(第7局一、三壘有人,一人出局的狀況也出現了雙殺,安然度過)
7.1局的投球只失了一分~
不過,
其實阿民今天投球的內容是蠻不錯的,
從投球數裡可以看得出來~
今年的阿民在練習其他球種之後,每局平均使用球數較以往提升了不少,
但是今天7.1局只花了83球,
阿民也說,今天他就是相信他自己的球,
把自己的招牌沈球往好球帶中間塞就對了~
沈球就會往好球帶邊緣掉,
可以由以下這球的連續動作中看出端倪

這是王建民在第二局的投球,
打者揮擊之後球直直的往地上鑽,再高高的彈起,
(這球讓翰仔想到過去阿民和ICHIRO對決時,ICHIRO揮擊後,球「定」在本壘板前方的狀況…)
阿民在接到後,輕鬆的觸殺打者的狀況,
Sinker的威力可見一斑…
(看來這場球之後,阿民要不要專注練其他球種可能又是一個討論的話題了…)

Sinker不只可以讓打者揮出滾地球,
也是可以漂亮的三振對手的!

(圖為王建民在二局下演出本場比賽的第一次三振)

最後,來看看比賽數據吧!
080611 wang 7w 07
打擊的狀況,雖然首局就拿下來兩分,
不過後來又被對方的投手完全的封鎖,
直到9局小卡的全壘打,才攻得第3分
還是蠻多局有得分機會時,火力無法接續的狀況…

接下來看一下投球的數據~
080611 wang 7w 08
今天王建民的投球「滾飛比」是15比5,
也恢復了「滾地球王子」的特色~
翰仔覺得,
王建民還是好好的當滾地球王子就好了,至少比較有特色嘛^^

中繼的Veras和關門的老李表現得中規中矩,
順利的幫王建民守下了第7勝,

也希望此勝是阿民連勝的開始,
再次向單季20勝的目標邁進吧!

最後來看看官網的報導吧~
(翰仔期末考又要到了,這次還是不翻了,乾脆球季結束再來翻好了@@)
==========================================================================

OAKLAND — After washing away some of his worries with six innings of one-run ball, Chien-Ming Wang was faced with a true test to see just how much he trusted his sinker, the bread-and-butter pitch that lately had not been nearly as much so.
It was the kind of situation that could undo an entire night’s work, but Wang unloaded and got the escape he’d hoped for, a double play roller that essentially clinched the right-hander’s first victory in six starts. The Yankees did the rest of the work, putting the finishing touches on a 3-1 victory over the A’s at McAfee Coliseum on Tuesday night.

For Wang, who hadn’t posted a victory since May 2 vs. Seattle, the toughest spot of the evening was in that seventh, when the A’s loaded the bases with one out on two singles and a walk, the Yankees leading 2-1. Kurt Suzuki hit a sharp ground ball to Alex Rodriguez at third, starting an inning-ending 5-4-3 double play.

“That’s the biggest one he got, to Suzuki,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “We needed a double play ball there and he got exactly what he needed. He got four double play balls tonight and that’s the kind of guy he is when he’s on.”

The start was progress for Wang, and after allowing 23 runs over his last four starts, it didn’t come by accident. Wang spent much of the last five days reviewing tape, comparing and contrasting to his 2007 form, and pitching coach Dave Eiland identified a flaw by noticing that Wang’s leg lift was a little slower, thus dragging his arm speed.

“I watched videos of last year and this year,” Wang said. “Last year I was quicker.”

Wang called Tuesday’s start a “big help” for his confidence, and Eiland agreed, saying, “He was frustrated, but today was a huge step in the right direction.”

With A’s left-hander Dana Eveland slow to find his own command, the Yankees took advantage by jumping out for two runs in the first inning. Derek Jeter worked a one-out walk and moved up on a Bobby Abreu single before scoring on Rodriguez’s hit to center field, a play that saw Abreu erased on a strong throw by Oakland center fielder Carlos Gonzalez.

Jason Giambi knocked in New York’s second run with a single to left, scoring Rodriguez, and that would be all the Yankees would manage against the effectively wild Eveland. New York was turned aside through the next five innings by Eveland, who scattered four hits and six walks in a 100-pitch outing, striking out three.

“He’s conveniently wild in a sense,” Girardi said. “He throws strikes but the ball is moving all over the place. He’s got good depth on his slider and he throws his changeup with a fastball that’s cutting at times and sinking at times. He’s got interesting stuff that really keeps you off balance. I thought we’d be able to tack on, but we weren’t able to.”

Trailing 2-0 to Wang, the A’s cut the Yankees lead in the fourth, when Jack Cust singled off first baseman Wilson Betemit’s glove and Mark Ellis ripped a run-scoring double up the gap in left-center field. Wang finished up after getting the first out of the eighth inning, walking two while striking out two.

“He’s got a great sinker, and we never got him to come up in the zone,” A’s manager Bob Geren said. “We never really got anything going against him. Instead of us getting the big hit, it was him making the big pitch and getting a double play. It was frustrating, but Wang will do that to you when he’s on like that.”

Jose Veras took over, recording two outs in the eighth inning before Girardi was pressed with a decision — use Kyle Farnsworth, who had been guarding a tender right biceps, or turn to Mariano Rivera for a fourth consecutive evening. To help seal the choice, Girardi used his one telephone call, ringing down to the bullpen and bypassing coach Mike Harkey to speak to Rivera himself. Girardi said it was the first time he’d done so all year, but Rivera said such activity was commonplace during the Joe Torre era.

“It took one second,” Rivera said. “He wanted to see how I was and I told him the truth.”

It helped matters that Melky Cabrera tacked on a run for New York in the ninth with his seventh home run, a shot to right off Oakland’s Keith Foulke. Rivera pitched the bottom half around a hit to record his 17th save, and if it so happens that the phone rings again on Wednesday, he aid he’d be amenable to try for a fifth consecutive game.

“I’ll be ready,” Rivera said. “I’ve been feeling real good. I know that [Girardi] will try not to get me in the game tomorrow, but we’ll see how I feel tomorrow.”
