Boom goes Alex Rodriguez! Last night was big. Not only was it a great win for New York, but Alex Rodriguez hit the 25th grand slam of his career. That's pretty amazing when you think about it.
It all started with a CC Sabathia outing and it was a pretty decent one I have to say. After word spread of his incident in Toronto, and then him coming out owning it, which was the right thing to do, he took the mound and did his best to make sure the Yankees stayed in the game. 6 innings pitched, allowing just 5 hits and 4 runs. He struck out 5. He did not get the decision last night, and there's a reason...
The Yankees scored their first run in the 4th. Greg Bird singled home Beltran. The Twins came back to score 1. Then in the 7th, the Twins scored 3 more.
That's when ARod came to the plate, hitting his grand slam and putting the Yanks ahead 5-4 at that point. In the 8th, Chase Headley doubled, knocking in 2, and that was followed by Jacoby Ellsbury then singling home Headley. In the end, Nick Rumbelow got the win, his first of the season.
Andrew Miller was there to shut the door, and get his 27th Save, and just like that, the Yankees win... nice and neat.
Final: Yankees 8 - Twins 4
