The New York Yankees 4 @ Tampa Bay Rays 3
Yankees Report Card
Guys who did their jobs:
- Derek Jeter, whose 9th inning double brought home Cody Ransom to break the 3-3 tie.
- Andy Pettitte, with a solid 7.1 innings. Andy looked like a hard luck loser, but the Yanks tied it up and got him off the hook.
- Cody Ransom, who came in as a pinch runner for Godzilla, finally delivered in the clutch with a double in the 9th inning off of Troy Percival
- Johnny Damon, who tied the game with a double in the 8th
- Robinson Cano hit a 2-run HR in the 4th
- Brian Bruney’s 2K’s to finish the 8th were awesome. I’m tired of the MEDIA and so-called Yankees fans complaining that Joba Chamberlain doesn’t setup when we have Brian Bruney.
- Mariano Rivera got Save #2 in a 1-2-3 9th inning. Folks, if your MLB.TV freezes up for a minute, you will miss him.
Guys who didn’t do their jobs:
- No need to nitpick after taking 2/3 from the American League Champions.
How the Yankees won: Excellent starting pitching by Andy Pettitte, a never-give-up attitude from the offense, and a perfect bullpen performance by Bruney and Mo.
