We beat the Dodgers 8-6!!!! We were scoreless for 5 innings and to be honest I was bummed because the Dodgers were already up by 5. Then I looked up to God and said, “I went to church at 5 and on time. On top of that I miss 4 innings just for you”. Then A Rod hit a homer in the top of the 6th letting Teixeira score. Which made us trailing 3 points behind the Dodger. Than Dodgers scored one in the bottom of the 8th. I didn’t give up yet because we’re Yankees we don’t let anyone get off that easy even in the bottom of the 8th. So Torre decided to bring out this lumber jack looking guy that could be a descendent of Paul Bunyan to close the inning; but didn’t work because Cano double which allowed A Rod to score. Then the rookies step their game up to tie the game and of course Mo shut the Dodgers down in the bottom of 9th and 10th. On the top of the 10th the Dodgers decided to change pitches twice but didn’t work because Cano homers which brought A Rod to home plate as well. So, what is the lesson learned Dodgers? Hit one of our teammates and you will pay.
A.J., I know its has been a REALLY bad month for you but don’t worry it’s almost over and July is just around the corner. As a matter of fact it starts this thursday. I don’t know what’s going on in your mind but you will overcome it and I felt bad for you when you yesterday because I know you didn’t want to let your team down, especially to ruin your captain’s Birthday. You’re in a serious slump and you are in a team that is own for winning. But you will overcome this horrible slump.
