LUCKY 13 IS KILLING THE AROD HATERS
It's a tough pill to swallow if you're an ARod hater, and I get it. I mean, the guy was a steroid user and suspended for a 162 game season. Fans HATED him after that. They hated him the first time he lied on ESPN with Peter Gammons, but then it got worse and you really couldn't believe that he was that stupid... but he was.
Now however, he's walked into camp in 2015, shut his mouth and used his bat to do the talking. He hasn't been a problem at all, knock on wood, and he appears to be a model citizen. The biggest thing though is he's contributing to the team. When that happens, it appears all is forgotten. Tonight was a big night for ARod. Not only that... the Yankees won. Hey now.
Let's start with the pitching. Adam Warren started and gave up 4 runs against the Rays in Tampa. Luckily for us, the Yankees were hitting tonight. Both ARod and Stephen Drew had homers. ARod with 2 and 4 RBIs. Drew's solo shot came in the 4th.
But the big blow came in the 8th with the teams tied and that's when ARod singled in Brian McCann to put the Yanks in the lead.
At that point Dellin Betances was getting the win, especially after Andrew Miller came in and shut the door. Save number 3.
ARod carried the Yankees on his back tonight. The haters will dart for the shadows, but they secretly root for the guy. Whatever the case... a win is a win. And guess what? I'll take this win any day of the week.
Final: Yankees 5 - Rays 4
