As soon as Ichiro led off with a home run on the first pitch of the game against Javy, I thought… here we go again! Then Russell Branyan hits a home run in the upper deck in right field! Then another home run for Ichiro! We tied it but Javy is gone after three innings! Well, enough with the exclamation points but we ended up piling it on later and the bullpen was great in handing it off to CC tomorrow. Great story with newly called up Eduardo Nuñez getting his first hit, RBI and run scored. That look and the kiss for the ball was priceless. A high energy kid that will be getting a good look with A-Rod going on the DL for that calf strain. Good win.
