WILD PITCH WINS IT IN THE BRONX
Masahiro Tanaka went 6.1 innings last night. He had some nice moments, but for the most part, he wasn't "Tanaka" in a sense, although, he did strikeout 11. He also only gave up 2 runs. Little did we know the Yankees would struggle with Garrett Richards... but that's baseball. What followed was Adam Warren and David Robertson and they cleaned it up real nicely, holding the Halos to only 2.
The Yankees had only 3 hits last night. In the bottom of the 5th, Ichiro Suzuki grounded out, and in the process, Mark Teixeira scored. Then, in the bottom of the 7th, Mark Teixeira homered. It stayed that way until the 8th. With Brian McCann up, there was a wild pitch by Nick Maronde.
That scored Jacoby Ellsbury. Again, the Yankee pitching held the Angels after that and in the end, we scratched out a win... with alittle help. It doesn't matter... a win is a win and today is an off day... that's the way to do it.
Final: Yankees 3 - Angels 2.
