On July 18, 1999, which was also Yogi Berra Day, who caught the only perfect game in post-season history, with Don Larson in attendance, who pitched the game, David Cone pitched a perfect game. 27 up, 27 down. It was historic. What does that have to do with today’s game? Well, ……… nothing I guess.
~~Rays 6, Yankees 5~~
Yankees had the lead, up to the 6th inning, then A.J. gave up 5 runs. I guess you could blame A.J., but I prefer to look at the fact that, even though they lost, the Yankees seem to be coming around. They seem to be coming awake, after all they scored 5 runs. The Rays aren’t #1 in the A.L. East because they are lucky, they have good pitchers and good hitters. Tonight they outhit and outpitched the Yankees.
Granderson hit his 14th home run of the season. His success is a testament to Kevin Long’s coaching ability. Half of his home runs (like the one tonight) have been off lefties. Now the rest really need to step things up.
The Yankees are a good team, I believe that with all my heart. Even with this losing streak they are a hair above (.513) Boston and Toronto (.512). All three teams are 3 games behind Tampa Bay, there are 123 more games to go. Some say it is no longer ‘early’, but we still have the rest of the season to go.
So I say, LET’S GO YANKEES!!!
