Thank You, Boys, Can We Have S’more?

The Yanks scored a couple of two out runs in the first inning on a double by Nick Swisher. Might have been more but Curtis Granderson’s line drive was snagged by the pitcher Chad Jenkins. Actually, the ball hit his mitt and the glove popped straight up in the air. He caught the mitt with the ball stuck in the webbing, good for one of those I’ve-never-seen-that-before moments.

Down in Baltimore the Red Sox scored a run in the first inning, too. In the second, the Yankees loaded the bases and managed just a single run. Meanwhile, the Orioles scored six in the bottom of the first.

The Blue Jays were sloppy, got a runner nailed off second base in the first inning, another picked off third an inning later. They hung around and closed the score to 3-1. In the sixth, the Yanks put the first two men on base then Curtis Granderson and Raul Ibanez whiffed. Looked like another wasted opportunity. But Russell Martin worked the count full and then yanked a 3-2 slider over the wall in left for a homer.

Bombers didn’t look back. Martin, Cano, Swisher, and Ichiro each had a couple of hits. Eric Chavez hit a homer. Rafael Soriano came in to get the final out on the count of he hadn’t pitched in a week. Brett Gardner played left field in the ninth inning. Hiroki gets his 15th win of the season.

Final Score: Yanks 11, Jays 4.

O’s cruised too so nothing’s changed. Yanks still ahead by one.

Here's the video of that play in the first when Granderson lined the ball at the Rays rookie pitcher, and knocked the glove off his hand, and the subsequent out. I've never seen that in almost 50 years of watching baseball (damn that's a long time, but Ken Boyer did make me cry at a very young impressionable age). Watch this:

[1] I wrote Rays, but I meant Jays. Typos are embarrassing!

Baseball is too cool! Over 120 years old, and plays that have maybe never happened before are going on.

Today it's Andy against Romero. Hard not to think this one should be easy.

And how bad are the Sox? But truth be told, they may be better off then they were by Spring of 2013. Will then go for Hamilton? Upton #1 or Upton #2? Melky? SWISHER (God!That would be terrible). They have a clean slate and tons of money.
