I really don’t like saying that a game on September 1 is huge but today’s game was. The difference between a one-game lead and a three-game lead is tremendous. Especially considering the Yankees are heading down to Tampa following this series and they’re also still involved in this three-way race to the finish line.
So the heroes of today’s game were: Jayson Nix, Steve Pearce and Eduardo Nunez who all contributed greatly to the Yankees’s seventh inning game-winning rally.
And let’s not forget Derek Jeter and his bases loaded walk to tie the game and Nick Swisher’s hard hit ball that caused J.J. Hardy to commit an error, allowing all of the base runners to be safe and allowing Nunez to score as the game-winning run.
There was some negative news, of course, because can there ever a day that goes by this season without something bad happening? Curtis Granderson left with an injury. They’re saying it’s tendonitis.
Anyway, I’m glad my last game recap for the foreseeable future was for a win. I am taking a break from the internet and will be back in a week or so. The site will be left in capable hands, I promise.
