The Yankees had a chance to sweep the Blue Jays, but the poor pitching and mediocrity with runners in scoring position kept them from getting it done. Again, Nova wasn’t terrible. He just can’t seem to throw a clean inning, always working in and out of trouble. And Phelps. What happened to him? He was so reliable, but his last two outings have been ugly.
The Jays once again gave the Yankees breaks, walking runs in with the bases loaded, balking and otherwise playing sloppy baseball, but the Yanks couldn’t capitalize. Vernon Wells did do a great job of tormenting his old team though. In addition to his offense, he made a really nice catch in left that stunned Encarnacion and led to a fun double play.
Can’t argue with the series win. I’ll take it gladly.
