It was needed and necessary last night in Atlanta. Thank God the Yankees hit to help Masahiro Tanaka win that game against the Braves. The Blue Jays won last night too... and now, because the Yankees dug themselves into a hole and got knocked out of first, it is absolutely needed that they win every single game they can. They need to go on a tear. Hopefully last night was the start of it.
Masahiro Tanaka went 7 innings, gave up only 5 hits and 3 runs. He looked sharp. He also struck out 7.
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the first, 5 runs were scored. Chase Headley hit a ground-rule double knocking in 2. Didi Gregorius then hit a 3 run home run.
In the second, Greg Bird walked with the bases loaded. Then, so did Headley. That was topped off by Didi singling knocking in 2.
In the 8th, Brian McCann homered. It was a 3 run homer. Didi then singled and knocked in a run.
In the 9th, Chris Young homered. It was a solo shot. After that, it was McCann sacrificing home 1.
The Braves would try to catch up... the the Yankees were way too much.
In the end, this was huge. Let's hope it continues.
Final: Yankees 15-Braves 3
Remember this song?
Yup, I'm a dork.
