Andy Pettitte gutted his way through this one – and did that well. Jonathan Albaladejo on the other hand…walking two in the 9th inning, with one out and a 8-2 lead…well…I don’t call him Alba-la-no-no for nuttin’…
How crazy was that 2nd inning for the Yankees? Melky doubles. Gardner hits a 100-meter homer. Pena triples. After Cervelli grounds out, Damon triples. And, then, after a Swisher ground out, Teixeira doubles.
That’s all followed by an A-Rod walk and a Cano single.
Two doubles, two triples and a homer in the second inning? When I saw all those extra base hits, so early in the game, I thought, for sure, somebody on the Yankees would hit for the cycle today. In any event, thank you Scott Richmond. Now, if Sabathia comes through on Thursday, the Yankees have a shot at winning this series…and that would be nice.
