I can’t have a New York sports blog and not blog about the epic 15-9 comeback victory over the Sox. Coming right after the day Fenway Park celebrated it’s 100th birthday, the Yanks come in and crush those Red Sox. The score ended 15-9 but going into the 6th inning, Boston had a 9-0 lead. I was getting ready to throw in the towel and then the runs started pouring in. Swisher hitting a grand slam followed by a 3 run dinger from Teixeira, the score was suddenly 9-8. The way the Red Sox bullpen is looking, I would prefer to put Little Leaguers out there if I was Bobby V. Their closer couldn’t even record an out in the 8th, facing 7 Yankees and walking 4 of them. Are you kidding me? This pathetic pitching outbreak lead to 7 more runs in the 8th. Making it a 15-9 victory for the Bombers in extraordinary comeback fashion.
What this means: sweep of the Red Sox on Fenway’s birthday, Yankees tied for first place in the division and the Red Sox in last. I couldn’t ask for a better way to start the first 15 games of the season.
