Interleague play at the Stadium is televised on FOX today. Here’s hoping Andy gets another winning streak going this afternoon. Comment away.
From the OC:
WE F-CKING SUCK!!! COME ON PETTITTE YOU LOSER!!! WE HAVE NO CHANCE OF WINING THIS GAME!!!
Bottom nine, Damon on first. Damon swipes second. Teix looks befuddled as he goes down swinging against Lidge.
ARod takes a ball, then a strike. The 1-1 breaks low and ARod swings over it. The 1-2: low. Deuces: low to make it full.
The payoff: ARod hits a two-run shot out to right.
Talk about drama.
Cano singles a grounder back up the middle.
Cano swipes second on a 1-0 pitch for a ball. Great jump by Robi.
Melky takes a strike to make it 2-1. The steal pays off as Melky drops a single into shallow right. Cano scores. Yankees win, 5-4.
Hope you saved room for pie.
That was crazy. It’s been a year, maybe, at least, since I felt this good about the Yanks, heh. Lidge has been awful, but it’s never easy down 2..
Id just like to point out how unclutch A-Rod was here. He only managed a two run shot to tie the game, a real clutch hitter would have hit a walk off game winner….
I didnt watch the game, how much time did fox spend on the Joba to the pen BS?
Only got to see the ninth from when Damon stole second; was on daddy duty for the rest of the game. Guess I started watching at the right time.

I don’t comment on Friday…we lose. I negatively reinforce today…we win. It’s all me baby!!! YANKEES WIN…THHHEEEEEEEE YANKEES WIN!!!
Was at the game today. What a great win! Anyone know what the record is for walkoff wins by one hitter in a season? Melky has THREE. I am ashamed to say I was in support of trading him for Mike Cameron. Thank god the Yankees got greedy and demanded the Brewers pay for Cameron’s salary.
It was really disturbing to hear all the Philly fans in attendance cheer for Philly homeruns and Yankee futility. I would estimate at least a quarter of those in attendance were Philly fans. Come on, Yankee fans, attend the damn games! Tickets are certainly cheap enough on StubHub.
And to think, it could be 9-1 after tomorrow.
