For the third straight day I was out and about enjoying what’s been a beautiful Memorial Day weekend, this time partaking in an awesome family barbeque up in Ardsley, Westchester. As a result, I was once again following the Yankees via BlackBerry, and things were looking grim after the top of the 7th, as the Indians jumped out to a 3-0 lead.
My family was busy cursing the Yankees for inexplicably not jumping all over Justin Masterson and were ready to chalk up another unacceptable loss to a terrible baseball team. Fortunately Nick Swisher, Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira had other ideas, pacing the Yankees to a five-run seventh culminating in a much-needed go-ahead three-run jack off the bat of Teixeira.
The Yanks would add two more and go on to win 7-3. In addition to the offensive heroics, the story of the game was A.J. Burnett, who gave the team eight innings of three-run ball (only one earned) while striking out eight.
The Yankees absolutely have to go to town on Mitch Talbot this afternoon and win this series. You may recall on last Memorial Day Phil Hughes had his best start of the 2009 season, throwing eight shutout innings against Texas as the Yankees won 11-1. I wouldn’t mind seeing a similar final score today.
