The moment we’ve all been patiently waiting for…the Yankees’ offense is aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!
Brian McCann had a heck of a game (finally), he went 3-4 on the night. It was scoreless until the 6th inning, when McCann knocked a ball off the right field fence for a triple, scoring Gardner & Arod. Yanks up 2-0. Then, it was rally time in the 7th,Chase Headley singled, Stephen Drew scratched out a double, and Gregorio Petit sac flied scoring Headley. Jacoby Ellsbury singled to RF, Brett Gardner singled to LF, scoring Stephen Drew.
Alex Rodriguez walked making the bases juiced for Mark Teixeira who had a sac fly to right, scoring Ellsbury, making it 5-0. McCann got plunked and a free ride to first, making the bases yet again loaded up.
Cue Chris Young’s Grand Salami pushing the score to a whopping 9-0! Who knew the Yankees’ offense was capable of scoring 9 runs in a single game…call up Papa John’s tomorrow! Ellsbury had another single in the top of the 8th (What? Even Jacoby had a multi-hit game?!?) Arod struck out three times tonight, to follow his homerun derby champion-style performance from last night.
Masahiro Tanaka was the star on the defensive end, pitching 7 innings, collecting 8 strikeouts and only allowing two hits.
The Bronx Bombers look to sweep the series tomorrow against the Rays with game 3 starting at 1:10 pm.
