Ivan Nova had a great night on the mound, throwing 7.1 innings, giving up only 2 hits and no earned runs, with 0 BB and 1 K. Soriano pitched well, and Mo came in and notched save #12 for the season, which leaves him only 31 saves away from the all-time record. I hope he can get it this season. It would be great, regardless of what the Yankees do as far as the playoffs go.
Another game, another offensive drought. Sure we scored four runs, but we also had other opportunities to score a lot more than that, but didn’t capitalize on any of them. As I said in another write-up, beggars can’t be choosers. Our only real offensive powerhouse was Curtis Granderson, who went 2-4 with 3 RBI. Which you’ll notice is 75% of our total runs scored all night. He was also the only Yankee to get more than one hit. I just hope that our total runs scored tonight is at least twice what we scored last night. It would be nice.
