“Another bad one,” he said. “The guys battled back, but they just couldn’t stop them. It was a long night, but I hung in. I saw Jeter in the dugout until the end so I figured I could stay in front of the television.
“It’s frustrating,” Marc continued. “We are beaten by the Angels again and now I have to stumble through another day with almost no sleep.
“But I’ll be ready tonight,” he went on. “Pettitte will give us a good start. I hate to see him always have to carry the load, but he seems comfortable with it.
“I’ll be comfortable if we can take the last game of this series,” Marc said. “Three days without sleep will go down a lot smoother with a win.”
