Nice Father’s Day win for the Yanks and nice Father’s Day display for his dad by Swisher. Go-ahead homers are always appreciated.
I missed the game. I was on a panel at the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. I was talking about my favorite team but unable to watch them in action – the irony. The audience got a kick out of the story of my “divorce” from the Yanks that led to the She-Fan book. I hope all the aspiring authors in the crowd were motivated to write about subjects that stir their passions.
Anyhow, I just finished reading several recaps of the game. It sounds like CC was “off” until he settled down and did his usual workmanlike job of keeping the Yankees in it. Is it me or has he been struggling a little more this season? Maybe he should go back to eating this.
Of course, “struggling” is a relative term. I’d take a pitcher who goes seven innings any day.
Interesting that Gardner led off with a homer, but more exciting to me was the offensive comeback. And we won another series. Yay.
