For the first six innings, things in this contest, offensively for the Yankees, looked more hairy than Nick Tortelli’s back. However, thanks to a “GBA” assisted, 25-minute, top of the 7th inning, icing of the Jays’ starter, Shaun Marcum, the home team was able to pull this one out.
Big hits for A-Rod and A-Phil…along with gutty pitching from the Rocket and…Mike Myers(!) save the day in this one. Oh yeah, an extended Mo Rivera had something to say in the outcome as well.
Before I get to the really good news, let’s talk about Edwar Ramírez. The kid gets called up on July 1st. He pitches on July 3rd and then again on July 6th – and then we never see him again. So, it’s now 12 days since he pitched in a game. Why does Torre even have him on the team if he’s not going to use him?
Enough. Now, the good stuff. Boston lost again. Yes, it’s getting closer yet…just one more and then I’ll start to get really giddy.
