Carlos Gomez promised to “surprise” New York tonight, and he did so in the third when he misplayed Derek Jeter’s foul ball. You could see it coming. With a second chance Jeter would get on and Alex Rodriguez would homer.
Perez wasn’t flustered by the error and Damion Easley made a nice scoop-and-throw to get Jeter.
Perez, by the way, appears to have settled down since the first.
It will be interesting to see how Gomez responds.
