Hey guys, Drew back here, and awfully darn happy about the turnout of last night's game. As you probably know, the Yanks won 4-1 and advanced to the ALCS! Yay!
This post is mainly about the new Yanks in this series, here we go:
CC Sabathia pitched a great 1st game, going 6 and 2 thirds allowing 1 run, while striking out 8. Yeah, he can't pitch in the postseason for sure. Jeter & Matsui got the long ball going, while Nick Swisher had a key RBI 2B. And that guy who everybody says is a choker, A-Rod, had 2 RBI in the game as well.
In Game 2, the new acquisition, star 1B Mark Teixeira hit a walkoff homer and A-Rod hit a game-tying 2 run homer in the 9th to spark up the Yankees chances. Reliever David Robertson retired all 3 batters after he loaded the bases, and who can forget A.J. Burnett, who went 6 innings, allowing 3 hits and striking out 6!
And finally last night, Andy Pettitte pitched really well, and after he gave up his only run, the Yankees got right back in it. A-Rod hit a game tying homer and Posada broke the lead with another homer!
So, check out A-Rod's 1st round stats:
Yes, that's 3 GAMES!
