Logan and Swish Come Through, Back In First!
When Colon loaded the bases with 2 out in the bottom of the 5th, and Joe Girardi brought in Boone Logan, to face the dangerous Adrian Gonazlez, I thought, "Noooooooo!" And, "Oh, God, take me now!"
Logan struck out Gonzlaez out.
In the top of the 6th, the Yankees tied it, and Nick Swisher, who I mentioned on Facebook that I thought should be the one to hit the winning home run tonight, came close enough, hitting a ground-rule double, to give the Yankees a 3-2 lead.
Mariano closed it in the bottom of the 9th, with 2 called strikeouts.
3-2! We beat The Scum, 3-2! We beat The Scum, 3-2! We beat The Scum, 3-2!
And we're back in first place.
WP: Logan (3-2). SV: Rivera (29). LP: Jon Lester (11-5).
