Sure, the Knicks kicked another one away tonight in Boston but at least we’ve got the Yankees who took at 5-3 lead into the ninth inning. Enter Sandman…
Mariano allows a lead off double.
A slide into first isn’t enough to erase a soft ground ball…one out, runner to third.
One out, for the dangerous Jose Bautista. Mo pitches around him but one gets away…
and in comes a run. 5-4.
Bautista walks and Mo gets ahead of Adam Lind…
then leaves a cutter on the fat part of the plate and Lind singles, Bautista takes third.
And then…a safety squeeze…Ha!
The game, tied; save, blown.
A double play gets Mo out of the inning but the damage is done. Yanks leave two men on in the 10th and Ivan Nova gives up the game winner with two out in the bottom of the inning. First runs all year against Mo, first blown save. Tough night all around.
Final Score: Jays 6, Yanks 5.
