What a weird game. I thought it was going to be an easy win for us, but when are games against the Red Sox ever easy? It was nice to see our offense finally break out in a serious way, and it was even better to see the team not succumb to defeat when Wang decided to take the night off. This could have easily been reversed if we didn’t fight back in a serious manner. Losing this game would have s.ucked.
As I mentioned above, Wang didn’t have a great game. He only went 4 innings, giving up 8 runs on 9 hits. Ack. Not a good night for him. Ohlendorf, Hawkins, Traber and Bruney were the relievers tonight, and wouldn’t you know it…..Hawkins got the win. He pitched really well tonight, hopefully that’ll go a long way to shutting up the losers who berated him into changing his number. Bruney got the save, and he did just as well. It was nice to see our bullpen step up in a game like this.
Apparently the Yankees’ bats finally showed up, and just at the right moment. 15 runs on 16 hits. Nice. Even better was every starter got a hit! That’s right, all of them! Even Jason Giambi! So everyone offensively gets a Star tonight for kicking ***, but there are a couple that will get special mention. Alex Rodriguez hit his 521st career HR, putting him at #15 on the all-time list. #15. And he’s 32. Imagine where he could be in 10 years. Yikes. Chad Moeller, our backup’s backup, went 3-4 and now he’s hitting .400. Our backup’s backup. Now that’s cool. DJ went 2-4 with a couple RsBI and Jason went 2-4 with a couple RsBI as well. It was great seeing everyone do something, including the guys who haven’t done much since the season began. I’d like to see this offense continue for tomorrow night. Please.
