In the YES post-game for this one, Bob Lorenz talked about “the resurgence of the Yankees offense.”
The Yankees first run came on Melky Cabrera’s homer – which looked like it was helped a tad by the wind. Their second run came on a DP grounder from Jose Molina with runners on the corners. Their fourth run came on a fielder’s choice. And, their fifth and sixth runs came via homers off Hideo Nomo – who has just as much a right to be pitching in the majors now as Leif Garrett had singing “I Was Made For Dancin’” in 1978.
In any event, gutty effort from Pettitte this evening. Nice to win this one. Now, the funs starts tomorrow…
