I assumed Alex Rodriguez would do something big last night. I honestly didn't think Didi would, but no one did. It were a few homers that put the Yankees ahead of the Rangers last night and alot of clutch hitting... and we just keep on rolling, this time it was in Arlington.
Ivan Nova took the mound for New York and went 5 innings, giving up 5 hits, 2 runs and struck out 3. The Rangers would not score again off of Shreve, Wilson and Betances.
In fact, big 'ups' to Shreve, the guy has been everything we could have asked for... and more. Don't forget, we got him in the Manny Banuelos for David Carpenter trade. Carp is gone... Shreve is killing it for us. Love that!
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the 3rd, it was Didi who hit a 2 run home run. That was followed by Chris Young who sacrificed home a run.
Then, in the 6th, it was the Alex Rodriguez '40th birthday' shot heard 'round the world. After that, Didi came up in the 7th and singled home 2 more runs. Beautiful.
The Yankees beat the Rangers. They're looking real good. Keep it up!
Final: Yankees 6 - Rangers 2
