~~ Yankees 9, Tigers 3 ~~
This game started tied at 1-1, that’s because of the rain out yesterday and since it’s post season, the game is picked up where it left off, not restarted. Nova was on the mound for the Yankees and pitched into the 9th inning. No run ball. Ayala gave up the only runs today. Nova was considered as pitching ‘in relief’ since CC started the game yesterday. The two runs Ayala gave up were charged to Nova, but in my head they were his fault. Mo came in for the final out.
Robinson Cano connected for his team’s first postseason grand slam in nearly 12 years and Ivan Nova fired 6 1/3 sterling innings in his postseason debut, leading the Yankees to a 9-3 victory over the Tigers in Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Saturday.
The grand slam came an inning after a ball that bounced off the top of the wall and ended back in the field was ruled a double. This was a no-doubter, landing in the 2nd tier of seats.
The Yankees are now 10 wins away from another World Series victory. Kasey keeps telling me she wants a parade. And tomorrow is my first post-season game. Can’t wait.
