YANKEES WIN! I LYLE LOVE IT!
Matt Moore pitched for the Rays tonight. He's tough, we all know he's having a great season. The reality is, if you can get past Moore, you usually have a shot. Tonight, we did. Moore went 6 innings, allowed 5 hits and only 1 run.
Vidal Nuno started tonight for the Yanks and pitched 6 as well. He gave up 5 hits and 2 runs. Shawn Kelley followed and gave up the other run. Then a combination and bridge to Mariano Rivera just shut down the Rays until the Mariano Rivera save. It was Save number 18 as the Mo Tour continues.
Travis Hafner struck first and knocked in Brett Gardner in the first. Then, we waiting to strike again... in the 9th inning. That's when Brennan Boesch doubled to score Lyle Overbay. Brett Gardner then singled knocking in Boesch.
Lyle Overbay entered the batter's box and cranked a liner to put the Yankees ahead in the Rays' house. It don't get better than that! That's when Sterling yelled and said what he said. It's was funny... it made me happy and it was glorious. Yankees win... the Yankees win!
Final tonight: Yankees 4 - Rays 3
I love it...
