Game 40: It’s about damn time.

Well.  It’s nice to see the Yankees taking care of business for once.  Finally snapping a six-game skid, we got not only great pitching, but offense that didn’t die on the vine.  Ivan Nova pitched 5.1 innings, gave up 1 ER on 4 H, walked two and struck out four.  Our bullpen collectively gave up just 1 ER on 2 H, walked three and struck out three in 3.2 IP.  Very nicely done.  BTW, last night’s game was the 997th game that Mo has pitched in during his career, which means he’s only three more appearances away from 1,000 games pitched.  You don’t see that kind of longevity in closers anymore.

The offense finally showed up and showed up with some authority.  Alex went 2-4 with 2 RBI, both coming on solo HRs, Jorge went 2-3, Gardy went 3-4 with an RBI, and Derek went 1-5 with an RBI which means he’s only 34 hits away from 3,000.  It was nice to see some slumping players get off the schnide, and it was nice to see just a great overall level of participation from everyone.  Let’s continue it for the series against Baltimore, please.

Our bullpen, Alex, and Jorge Posada.  Good work!
