First, it looked like CC was in charge and the Yankees would win tonight’s game handily.
Then, there were a series of plunkings that resulted in a warning by the ump and a sense that we might be venturing into brawl territory.
Then, CC went all shaky on us, and the defense, which has been so great for so long, spazzed out. (I think Audrey and I jinxed them in yesterday’s comments section.)
Then, Robertson gave up those weird hits and the Tigers looked like they were the ones who were taking the game and sending us to another miserable loss.
Then, we scored huge insurance runs and finally, mercifully, pulled away.
Granderson sure did seem to like the #6 spot in the lineup, didn’t he? The offense in general was impressive (a Janer+), with Chavez continuing to be a stand-out.
I had serious indigestion trying to eat dinner during this one, but by the last bite (grilled mahi-mahi) everything tasted delicious, as happy endings always do.
