Hey – I know this is super cliché, but I’m going to say it anyways. Don’t be mad at me, okay? But: You can’t win them all.
I’M SORRY, BUT IT’S TRUE.
And let’s be honest, our half-Yankees/half-RailRiders squad has won a SHIT TON of games to start this season; more wins than I expected, to be honest, with all of our unforunate injuries.
The MLB season is filled with bumps in the road. This particular stretch is one of those bumps. It happens.
Wow. I sound very wise right now. Credit to me.
CC gave us his classic 5 innings of work, but it could have been better for sure:
5 IP, 7 hits, 4 ER, 1 walk, 5 Ks.
A sac fly, a RBI double, and a 2 run homer were credited to him. I’ve said this about our starting pitchers before (aka, I’ve made the joke before), but at least he had some variety in the runs he gave up!
Bad joke? Okay, my bad.
Johnny Holder gave up 2 homers for 3 runs in the 6th inning, so that DEFINITELY wasn’t what we wanted to see. Luis Cessa took the 7th and 8th innings, giving up a sac fly. They’re underrated, did you know that?
For our offense?
Did I mention that Sir Didi is back? You guys knew that right? It’s not like everybody has been talking about it for days…
Well….NOW DIDI IS OFFICIALLY BACK.
Wow, I really missed you, Mariekson.
Gleyber added a RBI double, with Gio The God and The Happy Fella adding a sacrifice fly of his own.
Oh, and Gardy’s helmet wanted to fight back at him. This clip really sums up the Yankees’ week in a nutshell.
When your helmet punches back, you know that the team is in a real slump.
And our old man needed stitches too! Honestly, no surprise hearing that little nugget of information.
Damnit. 8-4 Loss.
Much like in the uber-friendly nation of Canada, let’s please salvage a game in this damn series…
LET’S GO YANKS
