Pettitte, Yankees blank Rays! Mickey Mantle sports bar closes!

@SportsBata ..nuff said

Andy Pettitte and the Yankees blanked the Rays, last night! Conversely, Mickey Mantle Sports Bar, Central Park S Eatery, closed Tuesday after months of unpaid rent! In other #MLB news, a woman is suing Stadium Pizza, just outside #Yankee stadium; claiming that sex was offered on the menu!

Andy Pettitte and the NY Yankees blanked the Tampa Bay Rays, 7-0, last night! Pettitte gave up just two hits, struck out 10 batters in seven and 1/3 innings pitched! The Yankees also got support with a Russell Martin Grand Slam in the fourth inning! The Yankees (30-24) are just behind the Rays (31-24), battling for first place in the AL East with the Baltimore Orioles (31-24)!

Mickey Mantle Sports Bar located on Central Park South was forced to close, yesterday, after months of unpaid rent! The hot spot was serving #NYC for over 25 years! The owner, Chris Villano, claimed that disputes with the landlord (ATCO), rising food costs, and “shifting city regulations” is what let to the closing! The place was co-owned by none other Mickey Mantle himself until he passed away in 1995, and ownership was shifted fully to Villano in 2002. The NY Post tried to get interest in the place since April when the place really started struggling, but to no avail.
