The Yanks beat the Rays in Game 4 on the strength of good pithing—and a sterling showing from the bullpen—and a couple of big hits, including a towering home run by Gleyber Torres.
That gives a Game 5 win-or-go-home scenario tonight.
We pause for a moment, however, to tip our cap to Whitey Ford, who died last night at the age of 91. Ford was the biggest of big game pitchers for the Yanks during their dynasty years. We salute the Chairman of the Board.
And tonight, we’ll be watching and rooting for our guys.
Never mind the nerves:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
