I miss pie, but I’ll take the Gatorade any day. Was that a fun win or what? And I loved that it was “little” Brett Gardner who picked up the bucket of sticky stuff and dumped it on Wells after the walk off.
Nova deserved to have the offense pick him up. He was sensational except for one measly pitch, and he went the full nine innings. Wow. He even made a good play to cover first base.
Johnson, the O’s closer, helped the Yanks out when he couldn’t find the plate, but full credit goes to our hitters for being patient and to Wells for getting a pitch he could hit and hitting it. I keep reading how hard he’s been working to get his swing right, and the work paid off big time.
Cano was beautiful to watch defensively tonight. So smooth.
It was one thing to sweep the Twins, but it’s another to get swept in Baltimore and then come back and win Game 1 of the series against the O’s at the Stadium. More please, Yankees.
