The Yanks staked Freddy Garcia to a 5-0 lead but he couldn’t get out of the fourth inning. Joba Chamberlain relieved Garcia after the veteran allowed three runs. Then Curtis Granderson hit a pinch hit home run to give the Yanks some breathing room. Next time up, he blooped a single to left field, driving home two more. And to cap it off he hit a two run double later in the game. Three-for-three, five RBI, now, that’s the way to bust out of a slump. Alex Rodriguez continued to look good as does Russell Martin. Robbie Cano and Derek Jeter had terrific games.
And it helped make this one a laugher as the Yanks cruised, 13-3.
It precisely the way to respond to last night’s loss. Mark Teixeira is going to have an MRI tomorrow, will miss the series this week in Boston, and I’m guessing much more. Still, the news today was good–Joba Chamberlian, Boone Logan and Corey Wade put in quality work and the offense did the rest.
Onward and upward.
