Games 43-45: The Subway Series
What a great series this was! After a disappointing first game that saw us only able to score one run after bludgeoning 13 the night before, the 2nd and 3rd game of this series were a marked and vast improvement. We got stellar pitching in all three games, great bullpen pitching especially, AND in the last two games…..OFFENSE! A grand total of 16 runs scored over the last two games, as opposed to just one in the first. Who wouldn’t take that?
Speaking of offense, Derek had himself a great series against the Mets, notching five hits during the series, bringing him to within 25 of 3,000. Alex also had a great series, going 8-13 with 2 RBI. Alex raised his batting average over 20 points just in this series alone. Derek also raised his batting average quite a bit of late, hopefully showing that the awful slump he was mired in for most of the season is done. At least for now.
Stars of the Series™
The pitching, our bullpen, Derek Jeter, and Alex Rodriguez!
