Another win for the Yankees last night. I have to say, I'm starting to get used to this.
First off, don't look now, but Ichiro Suzuki is hitting and I love him in the lead off spot. Having his there can really get a team moving, I don't care if he's 39 or 49... it's Ichiro...think about it.
The big story is David Phelps. Sure, it's great that the Yankees have 3 decent starters, but all us fans want 4 or 5 decent starters. Phelps last night went 5.2 innings innings, allowed 8 hits and 4 runs. He struck out 5. Not awesome, but I'm happy with him and he can only get better.
Robinson Cano and Ben Francisco of all people. I mean, Francisco is getting alot of heat for just sucking the life out of that roster spot, but he knew his role last night and helped out nicely.
The smartest play of the night was Lyle Overbay who stalled on a double play long enough for Eduardo Nunez to score and the Yankees grabbed the lead in the 6th inning. Once that happened, the bullpen boys came in and once again, Mariano Rivera shut the door for save #11.
Very nice win for our guys last night.
Final: Yankees 5 - Astros 4.
