Yanks Win Game 2 & Even Series
That’s comforting. Game 1 seems so far away now that we’ve won game 2. Now my boys head to Philly with the series even. But they have the momentum now. My babies won game 2 3-1, and it was a great game.
Pitching Analysis: A.J. Burnett in a big, BIG game? Most Yankee fans were a bit worried about that. Honestly, I was a teeny-weeny-bit nervous about A.J. But after the first pitch, those nerves were gone. I mean it. When I saw him throw his fastball for a strike on the first pitch, I knew I was going to see the good A.J. And boy, was he good! Burnett went 7 innings and allowed just 1 run on 4 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 9 Phillies. The Phillies looked as lost at the plate against Burnett as the Yanks did against Lee in game 1. A.J. was that good. He deserves a ton of credit. I love how the FOX announcers didn’t give him any. Eff them.
Look at that stare…damn…when he’s this good, I just fall for him….I was drooling for him last night….;)
Mariano Rivera was called upon to get the 6 out save, and I don’t blame Girardi for doing that. I don’t trust anyone in the Yankee bullpen right now. Mo did a nice job.
Defensive Analysis: Great defense last night. My favorite play was in the 4th. Jayson Werth led off with a single. I hate Jayson Werth. I think he’s gross. He looks like a goat. No, he looks like that wrestler Edge!
Maybe that’s why I hate him.
Anyway, he was on first. Molina decided to show off. He made a snap throw to Tex, who made the tag on Werth for the out! Haha, Molina caught him sleeping! It was so cool.
Werth looks like he’s gonna spank Tex! How dare he?!
Offensive Analysis: That play by Molina may have sparked something in the Yanks. Mark Teixeria led off the inning with a solo homer into the Yankee bullpen. Then in the 6th, Matsui hit a solo homer to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead! Haha, Pedro, who’s your daddy now?
Oh, yeah, it’s still us!
Hahaha, I love it
The Yanks added on another in the 7th. Posada knocked in a run with a pinch-hit RBI single. That made it 3-1, and that’s how it ended.
I liked this game better that game 1. Game 1 made me angry….very. Winning is a good thing. The heroes for the victory are A.J. Burnett, for beasting, Mariano Rivera, for preventing the stinky bullpen from pitching, and Mark Teixeira, for his homer and for just being adorable.
And speaking of Tex, he reminds me of someone….
Well, I see it.
