~~ Yankees 9, Indians 2 ~~
As I am sitting here trying to come up with a title for this blog post, something other than, “CC gets run support again!” the song for the Lotto commercial keeps running through my head, “Are you ready? Are you ready? Get set, Ready get set lets go!” Or something like that. I hate the commercials, I think they are totally ignorant, but the song is catchy.
No one was really worried about this game, even with Cervelli catching and Jorge playing first base, since CC was pitching. The general consensus was, oh the Yankees will throw up about a million runs with Big Stoppa on the mound, and they did. Win #12 for the big guy. I don’t have the average number of runs the Yankees have scored with CC pitching, but I know its high. Like I said, the more confidence the guys have in the pitcher, the better they play. I just hope Phil Hughes gets support his first game back.
The last time the Yankees faced Carrasco was on June 13th, it was the day Jeter got injured and ended up on the D.L. He held the Yankees to 5 hits and no runs. This was a completely different story as the Yankees got 10 hits and 6 runs in 4 innings. Two of those hits were home run number 24 and 25 for Curtis Granderson.
Derek Jeter got two hits and two RBI’s, the second hit went all the way to the wall. So he is now 4 hits away from 3,000.
The line from today’s game was: Yankees, 17 hits, 9 runs. Indians: 7 hits, 2 runs. The two runs were off Lance (Pants) Pendleton, everyone on twitter was freaking out, how he ‘ruined’ CC’s shut-out. Do you think CC really cares? He pitched great, he got the win, everybody knows he’s an All Star even though he didn’t get picked for the team, but instead he gets to go to the Bahamas with his beautiful wife and oh so freaking cute kids. For this game he got to sit in the dugout and watch his team mates run circles around the Indians. So Lance loaded the bases, Posada came over to talk to him, gave him time to take a breath and calm down. I don’t like to speculate on what Jorge said, Probably wasn’t, Dude if you mess this up for CC I will freaking kill you, cause he settled down, two runs, two outs and then a strike out. So I had to tell him, ‘Baby don’t worry, you got this, you can do it’ before the last strike. I really don’t mind. I love all my Yankees, even the brand new ones.
