The Yankees... well, they were hot... but not "hot" like winning hot, but more like weather "hot".
I had to play that video.... it's been a while.
Anyway, the Yankees lost. David Phelps was great. Yankee run support was limited, as per when Phelps pitches. Also, Derek Jeter was on fire tonight passing Carl Yastrzemski (8th) on the all time list for hits. Not bad for a guy people are still calling "overrated".
Phelps went 6 innings, gave up 8 hits and 4 runs. The Yankees had to hit off of Yu Darvish and company. That's never easy. We actually out-hit the Rangers 11- 8, but we couldn't get the runs home. In fact, I'm pretty down on Brian McCann... and I tweeted this after a strikeout with 2 men on in the 7th:
That K was Bullshit McCann. #BYBIt was a big moment blown. Enough's enough. When's this dude gotta be worth the money?

The 2 runs the Yankees scored went like this... In the 3rd, Brett Gardner homered. In the 5th... he did it again. He was 3-5 tonight. Jeter was 3-4 with 2 singles and a double. McCann and Carlos Beltran struck out 2 times each... just sayin'.
The Yanks need to learn to give Phelps run support. Do that, and we're on our way.
Final: Rangers 4 - Yankees 2
