CC vs. Verlander…A True Pitchers Duel
Today is sure to be a great matchup as the Yankees face up against the fiercesome Tigers and their ace…
Of course I dropped Verlander in my fantasy league when he was doing terrible in the beginning of the season but since then he has been lights out.
Now for the Yankees today it’s not turtle time but CC time as the big man takes the hill today.
CC hasn’t been pitching great at home lately but today I think he is gonna turn it around and shut the Tigers down. Complete game anyone? (I’m hoping this will end up like Julia and Cheeky’s predictions so let’s see!)
So it looks like the duel is raging on as Verlander and CC are both pitching great games. Did anyone see that bat of Teixeira’s flying into the stands during the 6th inning? He just let it loose and it flew. I’m glad a kid got it though. CC has another 1-2-3 inning in the 7th and is pitching great.
Yes!!!! A-Rod hit an A-Bomb and the Yankees are up 1-0!
It looks like Verlander is in some trouble now. Runners on 2nd and 3rd and….
The Melk-Man delivers!!!
He beats out an infield single! Scoring is Swisher! 2-0 Yankees! Yeah!
Top of the 8th Aceves comes in ( I guess I don’t have the luck like Cheeky or Julia but maybe next time 🙂 and he gives up a homer to Marcus Thames (hey, didn’t he used to play on the Yankees once) but preserves the lead as it is still 2-1.
The Yankees still are up 2-1 and they only need to close it out to win game 2 of the series. So who do they bring in…
The rest, well you know the deal. Let’s just say he:
The Yankees win! Ahhahhhahh! The Yankees win!!!
Today is the 10 year anniversary of David Cone’s perfecto.
Jeter did the awesome Jeter play in the 9th inning to help Mo out:
Don’t mess with the Captain.
