Of course the game went down to the last out, as the Yankees had the bases loaded and Alex Rodriguez couldn’t get the job as he popped up for the final out.
Overall a successful weekend in the Bronx as the Yankees won the series 2-1 but you would never have know by the way New York fans were acting.
The A-rod hating was at an all time high at the stadium, as fans seem to be suffering from short-term memory loss again.
As in the bottom of the first inning, with the Bombers already down 0-2 it was A-rod who hit a two-run homer to tie it up.
Take A-rod’s two runs off the score and the game would have been well out of reach for the Yankees in the same situation.
Fans conveniently seem to forget the base running blunder by Cano in the third, which caused A-rod to get tagged out at home; and Martin’s pop-up bunt in the fifth that caught by Halos pitcher Jared Weaver.
Look mistakes happen when you are making decisions on the fly but that doesn’t explain why skipper Joe Girardi pinch hit Andruw Jones for Eric Chavez in ninth inning.(…)
