You know that scene during "The Sandlot," where Porter utters the famous line?
Yea! That's about exactly how I feel about night games on the West Coast. Okay, maybe Porter said that several times during the movie. To be fair, I'm pretty sure I did too tonight. I have a theory about these West Coast night games being cruel, and unusual punishment for us East Coast fans, but it gets a little complicated, and I will just leave it at, I'm not a fan of these games. But I know our West Coat friends enjoy them. At least they get to see the games. I'm still a little bit cranky.
The first inning was a little bit like watching The Three Stooges. The Angels defense was a little bit all over the place. Hector Santiago started off very shaky. To be fair, he hasn't done very well this season. By the second inning, Santiago gave up six runs, including Derek Jeter's first homer of the season. Overall, the Yankees bats were alive tonight, in a way that I can get used to.
Vidal Nuno pitched 4/1 innings giving up 1 run. Dellin Betances gave a little away in the 8th, but for the most part, this is how I like to see the team play ball. I just wish it hadn't been 1 in the morning when the game ended! GEESH!
Final: Yankees 9 - Angels 2
