I missed today’s game (see my Mainly Jane blog), but from what I read Nova pitched a beauty. Good for him to rebound from that awful start in Boston and get his confidence back. The Giants aren’t the Red Sox, but a complete game shutout is nothing to sneeze at.
Sounds like Soriano continued his power hitting, despite his sore thumb, and Nunez had a very big day at the plate. I’ve stopped scoreboard watching for the most part, because I still don’t think the Yankees have much of a shot at a Wild Card spot, but another win is sweet.
Tomorrow is the day I’m both looking forward to and dreading. Not only will it be Pettitte’s last home game but, of course, Mo’s official farewell. The game is on TBS and I really hope they’ll show at least some of the pre-game festivities. If not, I’m sure there will be clips on YES. I also hope Mo gets to pitch at home one last time and that Girardi will put him in the game even if it’s not a save situation.
