It’s good to be back, and better yet to come back to a box score like last night. The Yankees go for the sweep against the Nationals, pitching Ivan Nova while Edwin Jackson is on the mound for DC. The Bombers will tie their longest winning streak since 2009 should they capture the victory today.

ARod. Fail. 0-for-1 w/RISP
3-0 count on Cano…then they just walked him.
2nd and 3rd with 2 outs now…
Better than nothing.
Come on man.
Well, totally let him off the hook.
That’s our MO.
25 pitches in the 1st for Jackson, bases loaded, 1 fucking run.
Breezy 1-2-3 1st for CSN.
Then a 1-out double for Stewart.
Had a chance to blow it open in the first.
Streak is over.
Guaranteed failure coming.
2 outs too?
Fuck this bullshit.
I’m watching Germany in the Euro’s.
AND Podolski gives Germany the lead in Euro…awesome.
The Danes tie it up.
Draw gets us through though. No biggie.
ZE GERMANS WILL DOMINATE!!!!
Jeter puts on in the outfield and fat Andruw decides not to try and score…
Would have been safe.
2 outs now.
0-for-3.7 million w/RISP
2nd and 3rd with 1 out for Jeter and Curtis.
Like every motherfucking game we play…we should be up 15-1.
4 pitch, 1-2-3 6th for CSN.
Good thing since our offense is FUCKING PATHETIC.
ROBBIE CANO….DON’T CHA KNOW!!!!!
HR OR BUST!!!!
WHICH MEANS BUST IN THE POSTSEASON!!!!
1 out double for Tex….
That should do it for the inning.
3-1 after 6.5.
0-for-3.89 million w/RISP
WILD PITCH ON BALL FOUR AND TEX SCORES!!!!
THE ONLY WAY THIS FUCKING TEAM CAN SCORE WITH RISP!!!!!!
ANOTHER passed ball gets Andruw to 2nd…
Automatic out now.
Wasn’t hard to call that.
4-1 after 6.5.
Thanks garbage backup Nats catcher. Because science knows the Yankees aren’t going to fucking hit anything w/RISP.
Fantastic start by CSN.
7 innings. 1 run.
Our pitching has been EXCELLENT.
Gets a standing O from the Yankee, I mean National Stadium crowd.
4-1 after 8.
RISP in the 9th with 1 out.
So that should do it.
1st place in the AL East and the AL.
The Universe is right.
Now, if we could hit with RISP?
Germany won too.
What a stretch of baseball. Pitching + HRs = 19-4 streak and 3 sweeps of NL East teams.
Any chance you are going to the game 6/27 IH???
Sadly no — you’ll be there??? I’ll be in Washington, DC. Am leaving tomorrow morning. Going to Rays-Nats tomorrow night, coming back Friday. Have a blast! And stay cool – I think that is supposed to be the one really hot day of the week!
