A Goldbricker’s Delight today, afternoon game in Seattle and the Yanks trailed the Mariners 2-1 in the eighth inning. The sound you heard was not the grinding of gears but the grinding of teeth back in New York. The hapless fuggin’ M’s. Enough already. So anyway, the Bombers loaded the bases and with one man out, Jason Nix planted a 2-2 pitch into the gap in left center field. That cleared the bases, gave the Yanks the lead and that lead would be good enough for a 5-2 victory thanks to an excellent performance from the bullpen.
Exhale y’all. Tomorrow gives a day off. Then: BoSox in the Boggie Down this weekend.
