TRIPPING UP THE CHISOX TOWARD MAGIC #3
Good news Yankee fans. The Yanks have won 2 in a row at this point. It's amazing. Can we call it a winning streak? Well, technically you need 3 to call it a winning streak, but I'll take what I can get.
The Yankees won 6-1 today. I'm not going to get into insane detail of what happened today, only the highlights, but it's clear to me that the Yankees can definitely make a push here, and just at the right time.
Rookie Luis Severino went 6 innings today, giving up 5 hits and zero runs. In fact, the White Sox would only score 1 and that would be off of Justin Wilson. In the end, our pen after Wilson... Betances and Mitchell, would shut them down and that's the good thing.
The Yankee run scoring went like this...
In the first, Brian McCann sacrificed home 1 run. In the 6th, Dustin Ackley homered... it was a solo shot. Then with Carlos Beltran up, a passed ball and Slade Heathcott scored.
In the bottom of the 7th, it was Jacoby Ellsbury singling driving in Greg Bird. Then, Bird singled, knocking in 1 and Heathcott followed with a sacrifice knocking in 1. Those are your Yankee 6.
Over all, it's good to see the Yankees putting together a few wins. It would be great if they could just roll HARD to the finish line. Let's see if it will happen. I haven't completely given up hope yet... I'm just so exhausted from this season... I'm trying to reserve my energy. Good win Yanks... keep going.
The Yankees Playoff Berth is down to lucky magic number 3. Me Likey.
Final: Yankees 6 - White Sox 1
