So what’s with Melky? Dude hit another homer yesterday, a lead-off shot against C.C. in the first inning. And there was Melky, up again in the ninth, the go-ahead run. Two out, two men on, the Yanks ahead 6-4. He smoked a line drive off David Robertson. But it was a liner and didn’t have enough lift to go over any fence. No, it went right to Ichiro in right who made the catch to end the game. Nice cut, Melk: Now go away.
Sabathia wasn’t great but he pitched a decent game, the Yanks finally hit a home run–Brett Gardner did the honors–as they won the weekend series and evened their record at 3-3.
Today gives the home opener. And with it, seeing all these newcomers in pinstripes, will really make it feel as if the season has begun.
