Aug 25 – Almost! Yanks Just Miss and Fall 10-9 to Texas

Rally in the 9th Ends with Double Play, Date Night Still Fun

baseball-png-png(Bronx, NY) – Well in a season of walk-offs this one came close.  But a game-ending double play snuffed the Yanks spirited 4-run rally to draw within 1 against the Rangers.  For the Friday Nite Yanks squad this was an extra treat (seeing a weekday game) and 5 from the crew (John, Brendan, James Sr, Tom and James Jr) brought their spouses (Peg, Keri, Pat, Ginny and Ellen) to the game.

The game had a lot.  The Yanks scored 4 early led by a big Matsui 2-run double and a Posada 2-run homer but Joba gave back 2 in the second before getting hammered for 5 in the 4th.  Chad Gaudin would give up 3 runs in relief but the Yanks made a big comeback in the 9th with various hits only to have first and second and no one out.  But Swisher failed to bunt properly and Melky hit a line drive up the middle that Andrus (SS) played very well to double up pinch runner Jerry Hairston and that was the end of it.
