THE WINNING THAT IS THE NEW YORK YANKEES
When the Yankees win, it's what's supposed to happen. When we were losing last month, and everyone was in a funk, fans included, there is no reason to talk about the New York Yankees. We were all complaining that Chase Headley sucked and everyone was on the DL and Jacoby Ellsbury was the worst contract in baseball history...
(I actually think Pablo Sandoval's is, but that's me) and blah, blah, blah.
Now, we're winning and everything is wonderful. There's unicorns running around my backyard, and I feel like I'm on the top of the world.
Masahiro Tanaka set the tone tonight. 7 innings of 2 hit ball and he struck out 4. Kirby Yates gave up the Rays only earned run and Aroldis Chapman shut them down after that.
The Yankee run scoring went like this:
In the 6th, Brian McCann grounded out into a force and in the process, Brett Gardner scored. Then, shortly after, Alex Rodriguez homered. It was 2 run shot scoring McCann.
Then Carlos Beltran homered. He is unbelievable this season. Those are your Yankee 4, and like I said, the Rays scored one when Steve Pearce homered in the bottom of the 9th.
So yeah, the Yankees appear to be winning folks, currently in 4th place in the AL East and 5.5 behind the first place Red Sox. Things are happening, and I'm very happy about that. You should be too...
