Yankees' bullpen on shaky ground in ALDS
tickets for any Major League Baseball game
Facts machine: Penned in?
The Yankees lead their ALDS series with the Twins, 2-1, but their bullpen has not performed well so far, blowing a save in Game 2 and allowing six baserunners and three runs in three innings in Game 3. In those two games, the bullpen allowed five of 11 inherited runners to score.

Only in Game 1, when Tom Gordon and Mariano Rivera each threw a scoreless frame, did the bullpen not allow a run or an inherited runner to score. The Bombers no longer have the horses like Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte and David Wells to go eight or even nine innings as in years past, so the bullpen's performance bears watching.
