The Yankee rookie makes his major-league debut in Toronto at Rogers Centre. Comment away.
Ellsbury doubles, Gardner and Beltran with singles to bring Ellsbury across. Fun stuff.
McCann moves Gardner to third with a deep fly to right center, and Teixeira beats the shift to score Gardner. Two runs and Dustin McGowan is still in trouble.
Kelly Johnson protecting the outside corner after a couple of edge pitches, takes the seventh pitch the at bat to right field for a single to load the bases for Ichiro. Nice at bat.
Ichiro down swinging. Yangervis Solarte with bases juiced and two away.
McGowan finally gets out of it. Surprised the Yankees only got two runs out all of that. 30 pitches!
Tanaka facing our old fren the Melkman.
And Melky kills one to right center. Pow.
Bautista down looking. Take that.
Encarnacion down swinging. So homer, ground out, backwards K, swinging K for Tanaka’s first inning in the bigs.
Tuned in to a 3-2 Blue Jays lead already in the 2nd just in time to catch two Tanaka K’s and a reply-extended top half of the 3rd lead to Solarte’s 2-RBI double. Nice. OK, it’s almost 3am here now. Good night krueg!
Tanaka-san was solid. He really settled in as the game went along. He got stronger. Which was nice to see.
Solarte is a golden god.
Tex got hurt again. Left early. Hammy. He might be a lost cause at this point.
.500 feels good.
PS Jacoby Ellsbury is the shit. This guy does it all as we know from the when we was on the other side…people were mad about his signing and I never understood why? He is an MVP-caliber guy. Diving catch, stolen base, 3 hits…does it all.
Love the guy and the wife does too already. For different reasons I think but still…
PSS DRob is 2-for-2. No problems. Looks comfortable. I guess we will just have to get used to “Sweet Home Alabama” instead of “Enter Sandman” for the next decade…I hope.
