After Chad Huffman (2 for 3 with 2 RBI) singled after a tough at bat against Broxton to bring the Yanks within a run, Sun Devil Colin Curtis had another tough at bat and hit a ground ball to score Grandy with the tying run in the ninth inning.

Our terrible defense in the second inning just contributed to Andy’s tough outing and really put us in a tough spot until A-Rod hit a two run home run in the sixth inning. Game is tied and Torre brought in George Sherrill. Robbie was hitless in nine at bats against Sherrill and then proceeds to blast the second pitch for a home run and two run lead. Mo had held the Dodgers scoreless in the ninth and came on to close it out in the tenth. A fantastic win to go 4-2 on the west coast swing. A well deserved off day tomorrow before Lee and King Felix come in with the Mariners.
