Wow. Two back-to-back wins in extras over the Royals. I’m impressed.
I wasn’t feeling so great after losing that last game to the Orioles. Ditto: the first game to the Royals. But the Yanks came out of KC with another series win and drew a tiny bit closer to the second Wild Card spot. I’ll take it.
Gary Sanchez’s bat seems to have cooled off (how could it not), but others have picked up the slack. Castro has been a beast lately and Didi continues to be an offensive weapon for us. McCann has lifted his game. Ellsbury too. And Tanaka and Cessa were great the past couple of nights. It’s Pineda who’s always a question mark.
After today’s off day, it’s back to work against the O’s, this time at Camden Yards where the homers will be flying out. I hope they’re our homers, not theirs, and by the end of the weekend we’re right where we need to be in the playoff race.
