That title was the text I received as soon as the Yankees beat the Rockies 9-8 today. The truth is, Joey Moses, living in Australia and being a huge Yankee fan, was absolutely right. It was big.
It was huge actually... It showed us Yankee fans that despite a pretty lame season, the Yankees are still trying to fight. Thank God!
It was a see-saw battle today. When Chase Headley hit his first ever Yankee grand slam, I thought for sure we were on our way, but the Rockies came back against CC.
Now... CC went 4.1 innings, gave up 7 hits and 6 runs. Not exactly his best outing of the year, but I'll give him one... he's been outstanding otherwise this season.
The Yankees were down 8-4 at one point. It was in the bottom of the 7th that Carlos Beltran was able to slug a 3 run homer, and that was followed by Didi Gregorius singling, knocking in 1 more.
In the bottom of the 9th, with Starlin Castro up... a homer, and a walk off and win for the New York Yankees. When clutch happens... it's usually Castro. It's why we have him.
And so, there you have it... Joey Moses was right... the win was big... the win was huge, and Yankeeland is happy once again!
Final: Yankees 9 - Rockies 8
