Yup... a Sharknado or something. I had to work in Sharknado somehow... I did... I'm adorable.
Anyway... It was a great day in the Bronx. We swept the Baltimore Orioles. Hey, that's hard to do, but when a team's hot, as the Yankees are... anything is possible.
Masahiro Tanaka went 7.2 innings, gave up 5 hits and 3 runs. He struck out 7. I'm not worried about this guy anymore. I mean, I don't love him giving up home runs, but I really liked what I saw from him. He looks like the old Tanaka.
The Orioles only scored 3 runs today. All were off Tanaka. The pen was made up of Chris Capuano and Branden Pinder. They did their job.
The Yankee Sharknado went like this...
In the first, Chase Headley doubled knocking in 3 runs. Didi Gregorius then singled knocking in Headley.
In the second, Jacoby Ellsbury homered. It was a solo shot. In the 3rd, Stephen Drew doubled, knocking in Didi. Then Ellsbury sacrificed home John Ryan Murphy.
In the 5th, Ellsbury doubled and 2 more runs scored.
We hammered the O's pretty good today. More importantly, we swept them. Life's good right now if you're a Yankee fan...
Hey... remember that first week and a half the season when the Mets actually won games? Where the hell are those fans these days?
Final: Yankees 9 - Orioles 3
