You remember the Pedro formula, right? Stay close, chase him from the game, win it late against the bullpen.
Welp, that’s just what the Yanks did to King Felix and the Mariners yesterday. C.C. Sabathia allowed one run, so did Hernandez.
It came to this: Game tied, bottom of the 8th, two outs and two strikes to Mark Teixeira who then lines a 98 mph Fernando Rodney fastball over the fence in right field.
That was enough to give the Yanks a 2-1 win, thanks to the combined relief efforts from the firm of Wilson, Betances and Miller.
Each game this weekend was decided by a run; pleased that the Yanks came out on top. Even happier for The Big Fella.
