After avoiding being swept by the O’s yesterday in Baltimore (whew), the Yankees now take on another tough opponent. I admit I was puzzled by Girardi’s lineup on Sunday, but it paid dividends as the Yanks finally scored some runs with the little used Romine, Refsnyder, Severino contributing.
Every game at this point is a “must win” with so few left to play, but there’s always a chance that Gary Sanchez will snap out of his little funk and save us again :)
I would have felt a little more hopeful if the Yanks had swept the Orioles, making up real ground for the second Wild Card, but at the moment I’m not as optimistic. Especially with Green, who was pitching nicely for us, suddenly the latest to go down with an arm injury.
Toronto is always tricky to play, but if everybody’s intensity level is there and we get a little lucky, maybe????
Meanwhile, I’m hooked on the US Open, so my sports attention is over on Ashe Stadium. Last night’s match between Nadal and Pouille, the French kid, was spellbinding.
