Don't stop believing: Yanks win in dramatic fashion

Friday, October 9, 2009

Twins 3 12 1
Yankees 4 7 0

WP: Robertson
LP: Mijares

PLAYERS OF THE GAME: Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira. The two combined for four of the team's seven hits, and all four of the RBI's. Both homered, with A-Rod tying it in the 9th, and Teix winning it in the 11th.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Teixeira's game-winning walk-off home run in the 11th. 'Nuff said.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: After A-Rod's RBI single in the 6th, and this John and I exchanged text messages (no, not Teix Messages) saying, John: I like this A-Rod better. Me: Where was this for the past 6 years?


  • For the second game in a row, the Twins take the lead, and the Yanks come right back and tie it in the next inning. That is huge, as it doesn't let the other team get comfortable, and the Yanks are never out of it.
  • The bullpen was not sharp tonight, there were 2 runs allowed, but also 9 hits and 2 walks.
  • AJ was okay tonight, except for the 5 walks. If he eliminates the walks, his pitch count goes way down, and he throws another 2-3 innings, limiting the use for the bullpen.
  • THIS TEAM WILL NOT LOSE!! This is the kind of stuff we saw in the 90's. Roberston, one of the lesser guys out of the pen, gets out of a bases loaded nobody-out jam, and the Yanks pull out a game where they were down 2 in the bottom of the ninth. Great things are coming.
