Its about time the Yankees got a win, I was getting a little worried there, but, no need to, because we have our offense back. And doesn't the game seem so much better when you see this,
Instead of this,
Rather than this, I know I definitely do, first, let's talk about the offense. Everyone in the lineup had a hit except Teixeira(and there's nothing to be worried about with him, he's done with his slump's for the year) and both Curtis Granderson, who has been on fire of late, and Robinson Cano had solo home runs. To open up the game, Austin Jackson, the former Yankees top prospect, hit a home run in the first at-bat of the game, but not to worry, we took care of it. Swisher, in the 5 hole (A-Rod's injured), got two RBI's with a hit to left field after Cano walked to load the bases. Then, later in the second, Curtis Granderson turned on a fastball by Justin Verlander to right field to make it 3-1 yanks. On to the seventh, and with the score being 4-2 New York, the offense needed to put some space between them and the Tigers, and that's exactly what happened. First, Cano hit his 22nd homer of the year to right-center field. Then, Nick Swisher got hit by a pitch(sort of, it grazed his jersey) and then after a Posada strikeout Thames got a infield single. Granderson walked to load the bases, and then Ramiro Pena got a sac fly to make it 6-2 Yankees, which would end up being the final score.
C.C. was awesome as usual, not much to talk about with him, but I'll do it anyway. He had nine strikeouts in 7 innings only giving up 5 hits with two of them being homers, but still, fantastic and he got his AL-leading, not tying, win number 16. Hopefully, he can pull away with the wins race, win the Cy Young Award, and win number 20 for the first time.
One last thing, the Yankees Bullpen has been outstanding, giving up only 3 runs (Chamberlain, and Rivera ) in the last 13 games. You can add bullpen on the checklist for things the Yankees dominate.
