~~ Yankees 7, Mets 3 ~~
Last week in the section next to us were a ton of RedSox fans. At this game there were Mets fans in the section where the RedSox fans were. Kasey said that next year, D has to get her better seats. It was also pouring, if you ever wondered if the Army could parachute in to rescue you in a rainstorm, they can. I love the Golden Knights show and it is even more impressive in the rain. Fortunately it stopped raining before the game started, but it was really coming down in buckets.
The Mets fans started being annoying in the first inning, cheering and making lots of noise, then cheered more in the 5th, stupid Mets fans, Mets were still behind. The cheering stopped in the sixth, when the Yankees got 2 runs to their one pathetic run in the fifth. The Yankees were relentless, they just kept scoring runs.
Derek Jeter stole his 326th career stolen base tying Rickey Henderson for the most in franchise history. He then scored on a sacrifice fly by Mark Teixeira.
Russell, Mark, Curtis and ARod all hit home runs. Alex’ was funny because he didn’t realize he hit one. He was looking around with this confused look on his face, then realized the ball had gone over the wall. Watching from the stands I wasn’t sure either. It was kind of hazy and he jumped up with his mitt, it was just over the wall. I missed Mark’s home run, I had gone down to go to the bathroom and get a pepsi for Kasey. The line for the bathroom was unbelievable, so I walked down one level and then couldn’t find the ladies room, just the men’s. So I walked back up and by now the line was gone. When I was in the bath room I heard John Sterling say, “A base hit for the Captain!” and how many more to 3,000, I came out of the bathroom to the roar of the crowd, I ran to where I could see the field and there it was home run #12 for Mark Teixeira.
AJ got the win, he deserved it, held the Mets to 3 runs and left to an ovation. Logan, David, and Joba all pitched perfectly, well Logan gave up a run. Then Ayala came in for the ninth and got three quick outs. Want to know how quick? We always go down during the ninth inning, we like watching on the big screen. I wanted to see the first out from our seats, by the time we got down the stairs, it was out number 2. I told Kasey, “We have to hurry, he’s already got 2 outs.” By the time we took the elevator down to the great hall, we looked up at the screen and the Yankees were hi-fiving each other. Frank was singing. Ball game over, Yankees win. Attendance was 48,286.
