First game goes to the Astros who beat the Yanks, 3-2 on Thursday night at the Stadium. Jacoby Ellsbury, the tying run, was thrown out at the plate to end the game. The Yanks were down, 3-1, runners at second and third, two out, when Gary Sanchez singled to left. It was the right move to send Ellsbury. It’s just that left field Jake Marisnick, a late-inning defensive replacement, charged the ball and then made a great throw to nail him. Nothing wrong with that. Onions all around. Yanks couldn’t get the big break.
It’s early April cold in New York.
Never mind the hot coco:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
