TEX & YANKS BEAT KING FELIX!
The text came in in the middle of the night. I only know that because I saw the time stamp. It was from my buddy... "The Yankees beat up King Felix tonight." I woke up at 6 today, turned on my phone and there it was. Bottom line... I fell asleep last night and never got to see a moment of it. Call me old... call me tired... call my not a die-hard.... I call myself well rested... so there.
Reviewing everything, it was clear, Michael Pineda was on a mission. To beat his former team. The Yankees had to win too. They haven't been playing so great so last night was important. Pineda went 6 innings, giving up 7 hits and 2 runs. Those runs were the only 2 the Yankee pitching would give up. Pineda had 9 strikeouts.
The Yankee run scoring started in the 4th, when with ARod batting, Felix threw a wild pitch and Gardy scored. Next Brian McCann hit into a double play, but in the process, another run scored.
In the 5th, Headley sac'd home a run, and then Mark Teixeira hit a Grand Slam. The dude is on his way to prove to 1 person... Mike O'Hara, that Texgiving is happening this year.
The Mariners attempted to come back in the 7th, scoring 2 runs, but the Yankee pen handled them, and so, that was all. Oh, and if you're wondering... Robinson Cano went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts... and from what we hear... is miserable.
Yanks win. Let's keep it rolling now.
Final: Yankees 7 - Mariners 2
