The Muscles Were Flexed!

September 7th, 2012 by Jane Heller

First Russell had muscle with that three-run shot to put the Yankees on the board. Whew. Then Pearce, whoever he is (yes, I know he was an Oriole) hit one out. Then A-Rod joined the evil homer party. It was swell to see the Bronx Bombers again, truly. Jeter had a great offensive night too.

Hughes was mostly good enough to keep the O’s in check. Cody Eppley? Not so much. Why Girardi keeps going to him is beyond me except that I guess there’s no one else. D-Rob must have read last night’s post because he was much better. And Soriano did his untuck thing. Game won. First place secured…at least for now.

    Much better result tonight, very satisfying. If the Yankees can just hold serve till the last ten games against the weak sisters of the poor, the Orioles and Rays can carve each other up. here’s hoping.

    Here’s hoping is right, NYL.

    Hoping right with you all. We almost had a Janer. It was fun and not too stressful. I’d like more of that please. Go cc.

    It was upsetting to see a seven run lead dwindle but at least we kept enough of it. Hughes was pretty good and it was good to see Robertson back on track. Jeter continues to amaze and it is really nice to see Martin up over .200. Please, sir, I want some more!

    Yes, go CC, Barbara. He needs to have his best stuff for this pivotal game.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we had two good games in a row, Audrey? I want some more too.
