Four hours and one minute for nine innings of baseball…well, if you call this game “baseball,” this is…
No question about it. When you have a 7-2 lead, needing 18 more outs for the win, and then you allow the other team to tie the score, that’s not pretty at all. But, on the plus-side, the Yanks did manage to eek-out an 8-7 win in this one…and, winning is all that matters, right?
So what if it’s not exactly a fine display of championship level play…or even just a good display of baseball, period?
Thank the stars for the off-day in Yankeeland tomorrow. After the way the Yankees had to use their pen in this series, they can use it.
