"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Sunday Best


And on Sunday the Yankees didn’t score much once again though Evan Longoria and Robinson Cano looked like the studs that they are. Ivan Nova and Alex Cobb were in good form and then the bullpens took over with the score tied, 2-2. It went to the 11th when Alfonso Soriano doubled with 1 out, stole third and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Curtis Granderson.

Mariano Rivera got 3 outs on 5 pitches–including a scary line drive off Longoria’s bat–as the Yanks avoid the sweep and win the game, 3-2.

Okay, now we can digest.

Not to be a damper on the mood, but I no longer believe the Yanks will make the playoffs. I am now rooting for the Rays to win the division and the Sox to miss the wildcard.

And enjoying Rivera's final pitches.

Family stuff, and couldn't watch. Reading the recap and game thread was exciting by itself. The Yanks will not roll over. [1] Much stranger things have happened than the Yankees chances.
