That was fun. I tuned in with the score at 1-1 in the 7th, just as Nuno, who must have pitched a hell of a game, departed. Too bad he didn’t get the win, but how about that comeback victory for the Yankees.
With two down in the 9th and Rodney, the Rays’ iffy closer on the mound, I had hopes that the Yanks would miraculously score a couple of runs and tie the score, but I let out a scream when they actually did it. (Thank you, Brett Gardner, Lyle Overbay and Brennan Boesch.)
I groaned when Nova got into trouble, loading the bases, but – another miracle – he pitched out of it. And then it was Overbay’s turn to be a hero again. What a pickup he’s been, despite the error earlier in the game. And special mention must go to Ichiro for that spectacular, run-saving catch in right.
Mo notching another save was icing on the cake, talk about miracles. He’s having his best season yet.
Great baseball Memorial Day Weekend so far!
