What a show he put on. It wasn’t enough that he made two spectacular defensive plays; he also hit a homer and worked a terrific at bat in the ninth to give us hopes for a comeback. Talk about a complete package.
Yeah, the Yankees’ comeback fell short today, but the way Nova was pitching (ugh) the boys still made it a contest. And winning two out of three against the Angels isn’t chopped liver.
There was a little bit of everything to like in this one – from good glove work to power offense against Weaver – but our pitching in general was off. And despite the couple of occasions when Chad Qualls has helped us out, I think I’d like his stint with the Yanks to be over. Like now.
Good job, Yankees, even in defeat, and I don’t often say that.
Update: Here’s a pic of our Friends of the Blog, Peggy and Audrey, at the game. Love bringing great fans (and, more importantly, great people) together.
