DON'T GET EXCITED ABOUT THIS WIN... EXPECT IT!
If we don't keep winning, we're done. That's the theme if you're the New York Yankees. It's the job of this team to win, but now, with their backs against the wall, they literally have no choice. If they don't, they're toast.
The Yankees were able to hold on today with a win against the Baltimore Orioles. Sure, I can give you the play by play and recap all day long, but here's the story... WE WON. To be honest, at this point, I don't even care how... just keep tallying the wins, that's what we need.
Shane Greene started and was good. He gave up 2 runs and luckily, the pen was able to hold down the O's and give the Yankee offense a chance to stay in the lead. Greene went 5.1 innings, gave up 7 hits and 2 runs.
David Robertson got his 36th save today. That's a pretty big achievement. For the first time in his career he will most likely get 40 saves this season. Nice work, DRob!
The Yankee offense went like this:
In the top of the 2nd, Brian McCann hit a solo shot... his 19th of the year. Then, Antoan Richardson singled and knocked in Mark Teixeira. Then, with Jacoby Ellsbury at bat, Chris Young stole home... there are your 3.
Say what you will about Chris Young, but he's leading the charge of this club right now. You need to tip your cap, he's been fantastic.
Today's a big win, but big in the sense that the Yankees should always be winning. Don't get over excited as a fan, expect it. This is their job... and they need to keep doing it. Go Yanks!
Final: Yankees 3 - Orioles 2
