Mar 25 – Rivalry Redux: Yanks Beat Bosox 7-1

Austin Jackson Ices the Game with a Grand-Slam in the 8th


(Tampa, FL) – For 7 innings it was a typical Yankee-Red Sox game.  Strong pitching and defense, tight and down-to-the wire.  For a pre-season game it still had some of that magic that comes only with this rivalry.  Tim Wakefield was back to his old self for the Bosox and the Yanks could only scratch out one run off of him.

got to experience it for the first time and pitched well also going  5.2 innings, allowing 1 run on only 3 hits with 2 BB’s and 4 K’s.  Mariano Rivera pitched an inning and struck out 2 of the 3 he faced.

Finally the Yanks broke through in the 8th inning and picked up 2 runs.  But then Austin Jackson took care of business with a monster grand-slam to cap off the 6-run outburst and turned what was a nail-biter into a 7-1 laugher.  Edwar Ramirez finished the 9th and got the win and 11, 113 Yankee fans (standing room only) left Steinbrenner Field all smiles.    Joe Girardi was very liberal with his substitutions in the game and the victory made it even all that much nicer to enjoy.   It could be a very special summer just yet.

  1. Austin Jackson got sent down or reassigned! Austin Jackson looks promising! Austin Jackson will be the centerfielder or leftfielder for the New York Yankees in the near future as early as the 2010 Season in my eyes or opinion1
