This is my version of “Live Blogging”. I’m sitting in my basement watching this game, I saw Derek hit two home runs, one by Curtis who also made two run saving catches. The Yankees were ahead by two, now only one. Joba, you can pump that fist, Yankees are still in the lead, and that run was not your fault. Alex needs a head slap, Gibbs style.
This game has been riddled, just riddled with errors. 4 errors by the Yankees, the type of game that people (the kind of people I like to BLOCK on twitter) say the Yankees didn’t deserve to win. I say, a win is a win is a win. Down 4-0 now leading 12-5.
O.M.G! Neither player hit the bag! Too funny, umpire gave it to Swisher ♡.
Posada with a base hit. YAY Sado.
Gardner swings at the first pitch and gets a single. Bases loaded.
Cervelli just hit a freaking GRAND SLAM!! Shut the eff up all you Cervelli haters!!
Bronx Bombers are no longer bombing in Texas, they are hitting bombs. Mark Teixeira with a 2-run home run.
Swisher up again. And makes the last out.
9th inning: Gardner with his third hit of the day.
Jeter with his 6th at bat.
With a 7 run lead Girardi puts Lance Pendleton in for the 9th
Ian Kinsler flies out to Brett Gardner. #1
Elvis Andrus with a base hit. Andrus to second, defensive indifference.
Michael Young walks.
Adrian Beltre pops out to Cano. #2
Mike Napoli strikes out swinging. #3
Ballgame over, Yankees win. Michael Kay’s new saying, “Put it in the left side.”
~~Yankees 12, Rangers 5~~
To recap: C.C. with 6 innings pitched, 5 runs, he came out and pitched to one batter in the 7th then Joba came out ended the inning scoreless, then Rafael for the eighth and Pendleton for the ninth. C.C. gets the win.
Jeter, Granderson, Cervelli and Teixeira all hit home runs. Jeter hit two, Cervelli hit a grand slam, the first of his pro career and in the same inning was Teixeira’s two run home run. This was also the second home run of his career.
In all the Yankees got 12 runs off 16 hits and committed 4 errors. 2 of them by CC. For series this season they are 8-3.
Tomorrow is a day off, next Saturday Kasey and I will be at the game.
