YANKEES SWEEP TWINS & CONFIDENCE ALWAYS WINS
5 games ago, Yankee fans were distraught and worried that the Yankees just really sucked this season. 4 days ago Chad MacDonald wrote BACK YOUR YANKEES, DON'T TURN YOUR BACK! That piece became an instant classic on BYB because the reality is, at the end of the day, if the Yankees suck, it doesn't matter because as Yankee fans, we still love our team win or lose. That resonated with all of you... and then something happened... we started winning again...and when that happens, confidence takes over... and confidence always wins.
Today there was a 4 game sweep of the Minnesota Twins. The Yankees won again today, this time behind David Phelps who went 6.1 innings, gave up 8 hits and 4 runs. He struck out 5. He got his 6th win of the season.
As far as offense, well, it's back officially I'd say. We scored 9 runs and it went like this:
Robinson Cano sacrificed Ichiro Suzuki in and then Vernon Wells singled and knocked in both Zoilo Almonte and Travis Hafner. That happened in the 1st.
In the 3rd, Vernon Wells doubled knocking in Pronk and then alittle later Luis Cruz hit in Vernon Wells.
In the 6th, Alberto Gonzalez knocked in Lyle Overbay. Ichiro Suzuki then tripled and knocked in 2 more. Next up was Zoilo Almonte who grounded out, but with just one out at the time, Ichiro scored.
Final: Yankees 9 - Twins 5.
Next up... the Orioles.
