Anyone Have Room For Pie?

Yankees Have Walkoff Win In The Rain

Pheew! I was getting worried that the Yankees were going to lose again! Their bats were sleeping. Thank God I was wrong. The Drama Club put on quite a show last night. The Yankees beat the White Sox 5-2.

I KNEW I would see it again!!!

Pitching Analysis: CC Sabathia was outstanding. He went 7 innings and gave up 2 runs on 8 hits and struckout 10 batters! He was really dealing. His fastball/changeup combo had every hitter fooled. He was really dealing last night.

The only trouble CC had ws in the 7th. Dye leadoff with a double, followed by a walk to Quentin. Rios doubled to make it 2-1. 2nd and 3rd with 1 out. Uh-oh. Ramirez lined out, so the runners held up. Then Castro hit a ground ball to Arod, who got the out at home. And right when I thought CC would get out of it, Beckham singled in a run. Darn. I’ll talk more about this inning later.

The White Sox had their “Phil” of Hughes last night! He had a 1-2-3 8th, and struckout the side with his easy gas. Nice. Mo had a 1-2-3 9th, and Bruney had a 1-2-3 10th. The pitching was fabulous last night. Every Yankee did his job.

Defensive Analysis: The defense was the reason we won last night. In the 7th, the defense was sparkling. On the grounder by Castro when Arod threw home, Molina made a nice tag to nail the runner. The next batter, Nix, hit a ball that should’ve been a double. But Arod made an outstanding play. He dove behind him and kept it to an infield single, which failed to score the run. And when Beckham hit his single to tie the game at 2, Castro tried to score. But Swisher made a helluva throw to Molina, who blocked the plate so well and tagged Castro for the final out. The game wound up being tied and going into extras because of that 7th inning defense.

Offensive Analysis: Jeter led off the game with a homer, his 17th of the year. In the 3rd, Johnny hit a homer. He is so good. I love Johnny. 2-0 Yankees.

The Yankees had many more chances to score, but every time they failed. They could not hit with runners in scoring position. I was getting worried that they would lose the game, especially after the White Sox tied it up. I didn’t think they would hit anymore. But I was wrong.

Robbie!

In the 10th inning, Matsui and Swisher walked. Hairston pinch ran for Matsui. All they needed to win was a single. Robbie Cano came up. He was 0-4 at the time. I thought tha if anyone was going to do it, it would be him since he was hitless. Sure enough, Cano hit a MONSTER 3-run homer. He did “the drop” with his bat, and took a long stare at his game-winning blast. And he got pied by a seemingly angry A.J. All was right in the Bronx. A 5-2 Yankee win.

Robinson Cano gets another serving of pie after the Yankees' victory.

A.J. strikes again.

So with another walkoff win in their belts, the Yankees took the first game of this series. The heroes are CC, for another amazing start, Arod & Molina for saving the game in the 7th, and uhh….am I forgeting someone?……oh, yeah! Robbie Cano!!! The Smelly Sox cheated ONCE AGAIN and won, so the Yankee lead remains at 6 games. And I officially hate Josh Beckett even more, for being a classless *********** and hitting cute little Marco Scutaro in the head. He and the rest of the Red Sox are a bunch of classless ********. MY YANKEES HAVE CLASS! GO YANKEES!! I LOVE YOU!!!

    “Class” is such a subjective term. Is it classy for our players to fistpump all the time? Is it classy to be throwing pies around? We think it’s all fun and good times, fans of other teams might feel different. To copypasta what I said in response to a comment you left me:

    Accidents happen. I didn’t see the game so I don’t know what led up to it, but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he didn’t do it on purpose. Hitting people is only classless when it’s done on purpose near the head/face. Hitting batters elsewhere is part of baseball. Our own pitchers have plunked batters and Joba has come up near Youkilis’s head a few times this season. Considering how he’s pitched this year, we can safely conclude he has control issues so they were clearly not intentional. As Yankees fans, we like to think the worst of everyone that plays for the enemy, but those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

    //The Yankees had many more chances to score, but every time they failed. They could not hit with runners in scoring position.//

    That’s been our biggest problem all season, I think. Our average with RISP is abysmal and that will come back to bite us in the *** come October if we don’t start working on it now. Too many times I see the guys swinging for the fences when they should be aiming for a single or a sac fly or anything to advance the runners.

    *12 walk-offs this season, and quite a few games left to play. This time around it was Robby’s turn – I can’t even imagine who’s next on the list with everybody playing so well this year. I hope Mitre does his thing as well, but if all else fails – another 20 run game should aide him in the win… If we can do it once, we can do it again. That’s the solution for a pitcher having a rough day… HIT! I’ll email you tonight when I get home –
