BLOODBATH IN ATLANTA
It was a rout, and it was big for the Yankees. Not only that, it's 3 in a row... that's a winning streak. Boo ya.
The Yankees scored 20 runs today. They had 21 hits. They were literally on fire today. It started with Nate Eovaldi on the mound. He went 5 innings, gave up 8 hits and 5 runs and he struck out 7. Not exactly his best performance this year, but the good news is no one noticed. 20 runs allows you to forget something like that.
The rout went like this:
In the second, Jacoby Ellsbury homered. It was a 3 run shot. Next, in the 3rd, Chase Headley hit a 2 run homer. After that, Stephen Drew cranked on out... another 2 run shot. By now it was 7-0 Yanks.
In the top of the 5th, Drew walked with the bases loaded. Another run scored right there. Then, in the 7th, Alex Rodriguez singled and knocked in 2. Brett Gardner then singled knocking in Drew.
Brian McCann then singled and Young and Gardner. After that, it was Greg Bird doubling knocking in Beltran. Headley then doubled and knocked in 2.
Drew then singled and yet another run scored. By then, it was 17-5.
When the 8th came, Bird sacrificed in a run. Pitcher Branden Pinder then doubled and knocked in Gardner. Shortly after that, Didi Gregorius singled and knocked in McCann.
And that's your 20. Unbelievable.
Yankees won. Stephen Drew is batting .201. Bad news? Blue Jays beat the Tigers 9-2. Damn.
No matter... Yanks just need to keep going!
Final: Yankees 20 - Braves 6
