Sorry for the late recap. I was out getting free t-shirts at the Brewer game and celebrating a little too hard post-game. Part of that celebration was due to A-Rod’s game-winning home run for the Yanks, a big hit to save a second half-opening win over the Mariners.
If it wouldn’t have been for the existence of Kyle Seager, Masahiro Tanaka would have had a spotless performance last night. Seager got to him for a solo home run in the 3rd to get Seattle on the board and a 2-run shot in the 5th to give them the lead. Other than those 2 hits, Tanaka was on point last night. 7 innings, 5 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts. Probably not good enough for some NY sports writers, but plenty good enough for me.
