First 1-0 win since July of last year. Wow.
Well, this locks it up – the Yankees will be a .500 team at the half-way mark of this season. Imagine that even being a question.
I joined this one in the bottom of the 6th. Looks like I did not miss much. But, I have to confess, when Wang came out after just 98 pitches thrown, and then Gordon almost walked the lead-off batter in the 8th, and then gave up two long outs, and then Mo gave up the lead-off double to start the 9th, I was thinking there, a few times, why did they take out Wang?
I cannot say enough about the value of Wang during the first half of this season. Counting today, he’s started 11 games and 8 of them have been “quality starts.”
He has to be in the running for A.L. Rookie of the Year.
