How crazy was today’s game? Well, it’s after 7:00 p.m and I am just writing the recap for a 1:00 p.m. game.
How crazy was today’s game? The teams combined for 19 runs and 31 hits.
How crazy was today’s game? Both teams used nine pitchers each.
How crazy was today’s game? Raul Ibanez, who came into the game in the fifth inning, finished 3-4 with two home runs and a double.
How crazy was today’s game? The A’s scored four runs – including hitting back-to-back home runs and three total – in the top of the 13th inning to break it open, and they didn’t win.
How crazy was today’s game? The Yankees were down 9-5 in the bottom of the 13th and tied it up with three singles in a row, a wild pitch, a sac fly and a home run.
How crazy was today’s game? The Yankees won it on a walk-off error by A’s first baseman Brandon Moss. It was the team’s third error of the game.
How crazy was today’s game? I think I may have aged 15 years.
So the Yankees seem to be exacting a little bit of payback for the four-game sweep at the hands of the A’s in July. With two walk-off victories in a row, what’s in store for tomorrow’s game? Both bullpens are taxed so both teams are probably hoping their starters will pitch deep into the ballgame.
- From @yestoresearch: The last time the Yankees overcame a four-run deficit in extra innings and won was on 9/17/80. The Blue Jays scored four in 10th, the Yankees tied it in the bottom of the 10th and won in 13.
- This is Ibanez’s 16th career multi-homer game and second as a Yankee.
- The Yankees have won seven games in a row.
