Last night’s game was long and strange and it took awhile to shake off the disquieting feeling that settled shortly after Bryan Mitchell was struck in the face with a line drive in the second inning. Turns out he’s okay–and we can only hope the same is true for Mark Teixeira who left the game not long after he fouled a ball off his knee–but the image of him being hit was hard to shake.
Wait, they still had to play the game?
It was a slog and the Yankees trailed several times. Big hits from Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran kept them in it, and they won it in the 10th on an error by our old chum, Eduardo Nunez. Go figure.
Final Score: Yankees 8, Twins 7.
Get the papers, get the papers.
