Yankees Settle Into Two Team Race With Red Sox

by @ 5:52 am. Filed under 2011 Yankees

Those pesky Red Sox.  They did make some nice moves this off season and you knew they were going to bounce back.  Still, the Yankees despite all of their troubles this year, have stuck with the Red Sox and they’re just two games back and they have a nice lead in the Wild Card.  So it’s looking a lot like 2010, just with a different team.  You should get your Yankees tickets now because I can see them being hard to come by these last couple of months.

Yesterday, the Yankees destroyed the Orioles.  They scored twelve in the first and by the third they were up 16-1.  By the end of the second inning, Robinson Cano was already three for three.  He finished five for five with five RBIs.  Curtis Granderson had four hits and three runs and Nick Swisher and Andruw Jones both went yard in the game.

Lost in all of the offense was a nice start by Ivan Nova.  He gave up two runs on six hits and one walk with six strikeouts in seven innings.

The Yankees finish up their series with the Orioles today then they head to Chicago for four against the White Sox.  Freddy Garcia gets the ball for the Yankees this afternoon.
