Yankees 7 Tribe 3

Great win. There are three story lines in this one. AJ was superb today. He went 8 innings to rest the short bullpen with only giving up one earned run, no walks and 8 strikeouts. He’s now 6-2 with a 3.28 ERA. The throwing error by Jete led to the two unearned runs in the top of the 7th, so what does he do in the bottom of the inning? Starts a 5 run two out rally with a 2 RBI single followed by Tex’s 3 run bomb to deep left. A big play for Tex and the Yanks.

For the final out of the game, Mo jumped straight up in the air to avoid a broken bat and is able to knock the ball down and make the throw to first. I agree with Joe’s post game comments that he doubted most pitchers make that play.  They either avoid the bat and miss the ball or catch the ball and get hit with the broken bat. A truly unbelievable play. If I find video, I’ll post it. A great win after yesterday’s loss. Let’s go for the series win tomorrow with Andy on the mound.
