Okay, if you’re old like me, you’ll remember the show “Love Connection.” You’ll also remember that Chuck Woolery, in his cool ass 1980s suits and giant watches usually went into commercial break saying, “Be back in two and two.” Yeah, Stacey get on with it, what’s with the twos?
Well, the Yankees have won two in a row – after dropping the first two games of the series in disappointing fashion – and CC Sabathia now has two wins on the season.Â See? There is a method to my madness – okay sometimes.Â Sabathia pitched seven strong innings giving up three runs, seven hits and striking out seven.
Hey wait! Another two! Nick Swisher batted second and his bat came alive – finally – to the tune of three hits and four RBI. The biggest for Swisher being his home run in the bottom of the seventh inning which was his first of the year.
Brett Gardner started the bottom of the fifth inning with a home run and 32 minutes later, ended it with a strike out. In between his two at bats, the Yankees scored six times. Eduardo Nunez – who played for Derek Jeter – was the only Yankee starter without an RBI in the game.
Eric Chavez started for an injured Mark Teixeira who was out because of his sore right shoulder. He’s day to say. Aren’t we all?
The Yankees still have not lost a series at home. They will try to keep that streak alive when the Toronto Blue Jays visit for a three game set starting tomorrow night. Hopefully I didn’t pull a Michael Kay and jinx them. Kidding.
