"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Delish and Terrif

Nick Swisher hit a solo home run in the second inning to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead over the Mariners this afternoon in Seattle. The following inning, the Yanks put the first two runners on but Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez both grounded out and another potential rally looked to be dead. But Robbie Cano singled home a run and a few batters later, Andruw Jones hit a double with the bases loaded. Exhale. With the big fella C.C. Sabathia on the hill the Yanks never looked back and cruised to a 6-1 win.

It was a stress-free afternoon for Yankee fans after the Jones double, a welcome tonic after the previous two nights. Eduardo Nunez provided the comic relief when he belly flopped into third, a crash landing if you’ve ever seen one, on his first triple of the year, and David “Fangraphs” Cone was again a pleasure to listen to along with Ken Singleton.

Yup, it was a tasty game all round.

Speaking of just desserts, the wife and I went to L’Artusi, a terrific Italian place in the west village last night. Here are the flix.

Here's that dessert again, olive oil cake with raisin marmellata, vin santo, creme fraiche mousse

Mmm, Mmm, good.

Oh, definitely delish, especially that black-and-white one :-)

But it was 7-1, not 6-1.

RAB has up a '61 Mantle/Maris checker.
Imagine being at this game.
"The Yankees played their 40th game of the season on this date in 1961, and it was a huge day. Roger Maris went 3-for-5 with two homeruns, numbers 10 and 11 on the season. Mickey Mantle went 2-for-5 and he went deep twice as well, his 12th and 13th homers of the year."

Just WOW!

[7] good day. I wonder if its specifically chronicled in the movie 61*

[7] what RAB didn't mention is the Yanks beat Boston 12-3. Although the odds would be low to hit 4 homers in a loss, its certainly possible.
