…That the Red Sox and the Rays both won tonight? That Russell Martin hit into a triple play? That Rafael Soriano screwed the pooch and gave up the deciding three-run home run? How about that Boston’s third-string catcher, Ryan Lavarnway (and what a wonderful name that is), hit two home runs? Lavarnway also made a critical play to get the second out in the ninth inning too.
It all happened folks. And so there will be another night of channel-flipping, nail-biting, and general playoff mishegoss. Would you expect anything less at this pernt?
The good news is that Bartolo Colon pitched reasonably well for the Yanks in the 5-3 loss.
Otherwise, the Yankees were a footnote in this drama. Final game of the season. Dig ‘um, smack.
