A-Rod grants mercy, wins game in 15thBy
Dear RAB Readers,
It is late. Watching this game took years off all of our lives. It was a great one for sure, a pitchers’ duel that went beyond the starters, almost all the way through both bullpens. Burnett and Beckett dueled admirably. Both teams had chances, but neither picked up a hit with runners in scoring position. The game came down to A-Rod, one of the best players in the game, hitting a home run off a pitcher in his first major league appearance. That’s the summary.
1. It was awesome.
2. It was intense.
3. The Yankees came out in the end.
There’s more to say about this, of course, but I’m just not ready to say it right now. If you are, have at it in the comments. To the rest of you, good night, thank you for reading, and we’ll be back tomorrow morning.
Mike, Ben, and Joe
