Yes, Travis Hafner has a candy bar named after him. At least he did when he was a slugger in Cleveland. Maybe with a few more tie-breaking homers like he hit tonight, he could get the candy company to revive it with him in pinstripes.
His homer saved me from having to gnaw on my fingernails for longer than necessary, so I was grateful. Nice move by Girardi pinch hitting him for Francesco who, despite his first hit, hasn’t shown much.
I didn’t have a good feeling about this game in the early going. CC didn’t look sharp and the Diamondbacks pitcher,
Miley Cyrus Wade Miley, was very “on,” throwing strikes and throwing them in quick succession. But CC settled down and the Yankees fought their way back, which is such a good sign on both fronts. And, of course, it all set the stage for Mo to come in and do what he does best. Game over.
There were no Pronk Bars around my house, so I celebrated with this. Much healthier. Tasty too.
