One @#$%ing Run

captain-eo-starring-michael-jackson-00Yeah, that’s about the size of it; Yanks have been playing a lot of games this season where they win or lose by (or annoyingly only scoring) one run. Not surprisingly, this was shaping up to be one of those shit-end-of-the-stick one run games; low scoring and other pitcher is lights out. Surprisingly, the team usually scores a lot of runs for The Composer (yunnow, Eovaldi, Vivaldi, ahh nervermind) , surprisingly his gem did not go to waste as Girardi and the batters themselves have a habit of pissing away these kind of efforts with “plays” or notebook strategies or just plain bad at-bats, but no.

Somehow, they managed to get on the good side of karma as the last inning saw them load the bases with none out and Beltran, known more for blown opportunities without even moving rather than good luck, managed to sky the ball enough to let Happy Nutheryearonearth boy Brett Gardner dash in with the winning @#$%ing run in the bottom of the night. Surprise, surprise, Yanks did not lose in extra innings (another annoying habit of late) and beat a surprisingly (if you are playing the Drinking Game with the word surprise, you are a lush) beating-the-league-like-they-owe-you-money Astros club by the score of @#$%ing 1-0.

It’s not that I hate low scoring games. It’s just that I hate having to go to bed in the middle of one with a summer cold and then wake up and write this before an early call. Oh well, enjoy your day and remember: @#$%!

A 1-0 win with a sayanora sac fly seems so perfect and yet so fragile. Like a snowflake on your mitten.

7 K's in 8 innings for Eovaldi. Keep it up kid.

Something good happened last night, Chyll. Having a challenging week? Should we be Mets fans? I like how they scored "the winning run in the bottom of the night", was that intentional? Brilliant either way.

Thanks for the recap. EO is how the Yankees spell ace lately. The Yankees beat a first place team they will hopefully face in the playoffs. Another win tonight would be nice.

Will was picking up on the interesting discussion of diction and grammar in last night's thread, is all.
(It takes a looooooong time to get used to Chyll Will's... perspective on life.)

Got to give it up for Eovaldi. He pitched a great game last night. Funny, 10 years ago we probably would have freaked to know we'd have a starting pitcher who was throwing 100 mph in the 8th inning. Now, there are so many hard-throwers, both starters and relievers, that it seems cool but not remarkable.

1) Beautifully put.
