STOP! HAMMER TIME!
The Yankees have been demolishing their opponents lately scoring a crap load of runs. Are you noticing that? They seem to be clicking on all cylinders. It's nice to see. It's Hammer Time!
God... remember when this was a hit?
Last night the Yanks hosted the Red Sox and many, like I, almost feel as though the rivalry, as much as I love it, isn't the same rivalry we've been used to from the 1970's and 1990's. It's much different. Maybe it's the characters they have now on the Sox. Dustin Pedroia is just too damn likeable. Ortiz is just old now. Varitek is gone... you see what I mean? Anyway, let's talk about the game.
Masahiro Tanaka was on the mound going 6 innings and giving up 5 hits and 3 runs. He only struck out 3 and gave up 1 home run. He has not been spectacular, but he has been decent and doing his job. Sadly, many of us here at BYB are just waiting for something bad to happen. He doesn't appear to be the same pitcher we signed. It's strange. By the way, those 3 runs were the only 3 the Sox would score all night. The rest of the pen did their job wonderfully. I tip my cap.
The Yankees Hammer Time went like this:
In the first, Mark Teixeira singled in a run. In the 6th, Tex singled in another and then we started a mini-rally. Brian McCann doubled knocking in 1. Carlos Beltran then grounded out, but in the process, Tex scored.
Then the 7th came... Zoo Wee Mama!:
Alex Rodriguez singled knocking in Ellsbury. McCann hit a 3 run homer.
Then Chase Headley doubled knocking in 1. After that, Ellsbury singled and another run scored. Then it was Chris Young, crushing a 3 run home run and sticking a thumb in the Sox eye.
It went like that... it was hammer time... and it was glorious in the Bronx last night. More today? Let's hope.
Final: Yankees 13 - Red Sox 3
