Hey guys, guess what? Brian McCann got a big hit when the Yankees desperately needed one!
I know, amazing, right?
The Yankees won, Masahiro Tanaka is now 8-1 (the Yankees are 9-2 in the 11 games he’s started) and tomorrow is a rubber ame instead of a “hey, let’s avoid a sweep” game.
Of course, there are always some negatives when the Yankees play lately, like the fact that they could only muster one run against Kevin Correia and his 6.34 ERA. Seriously, guys, what gives? Oh and they hit into another double play with the bases loaded (the sixth time this season). This time McCann was the culprit but he made up for it with his RBI double in the bottom of the eighth which broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Yankees a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. They had tied the game on a home run by Yangervis Solarte in the fourth inning.
Solarte made a bad baserunning blunder after hitting a single.…
