After a blow-out weekend loss to the much hated Boston Red Sox, it seems as though my boys are finally getting their act together. The Yanks took two out of three from the Detroit Tigers, and last night played the team we could never beat, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (what a stupid name) and won the game.
We had one of our new off-season acquisitions, A.J. Burnett, on the mound, who held it down for seven innings. The bats came alive, the bullpen kept us in the game and the best closer in baseball, Mariano Rivera closed it out. Final score 7-4, which makes it three games in a row for the Yanks in the win column.
Let’s hope the Yanks continue to hit and win series. The only series they’ve lost so far is the Red Sox series.
We play the Sox again next week, but this time we play in our stadium and rest assured they’re not going to beat us in our house.
