TAKE THAT WALK-OFF & BUILD MOMENTUM!
It was a wonderful win last night. Brian McCann sure as hell helped Masahiro Tanaka with 2 big home runs.
Tanaka just didn't have it... he had his tits lit up. In the end, it was Didi Gregorius to get that big Yankee walk-off. Damn... I still love watching that replay!
Luis Cessa kept the Yankees in the game, pitching 3 innings of 1 hit ball, giving up only 1 additional run to the Rangers. He was the only other pitcher after Tanaka.
But it was the Yankees offense that showed up to pick up Tanaka last night too. 6 runs in the bottom of the 9th. For anyone that was still in the Bronx, what a treat!
But it's more than a walk-off now... it's an opportunity. We just wrote about Brett Gardner yesterday in YANKS WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE? GARDY THINKS SO. Many fans poo-pooed Gardy's statements thinking Gardy is nuts and the Yankees are just too far back to make any run this season. The reality is, YES it's gonna be hard, but the Yankees CAN do it, IF they use last night's game as a building block. One game at a time... one moment at a time.
Yes, this season's been difficult for us Yankee fans... but I still have hope, especially after last night's win.
Final: Yankees 9 - Rangers 7
