If you believed the Yankees were going to beat the A's and Sonny Gray tonight, raise your hand. If you believed David Phelps would only give up two hits in 6.2 innings of work and pick up the win, raise your hand.
If you believed Kelly Johnson would knock in a run, raise your hand.
YOU'RE LYING LIARS WHO LIE.
No one believed any of that was possible but it happened! The Yankees beat the A's, they scored three early runs off Gray and Phelps kept Oakland's lineup in check. It was pretty great.
Phelps struck out four and walked three in his 6.2 innings but when he needed double play balls, he got them.
The Yankees have now won four in a row on the West Coast. I know, what is this madness and can we keep it for a while?
