Are the Bats Coming Alive?
On Sunday, the Yankees won a 13-3 game over the Baltimore Orioles to claim a one game lead in the division. The Yankee bats came in to save Freddy Garcia who lasted just 3.1 innings, and the Yankees did what they haven't been doing in a while: hitting when it mattered. There's no question that Sunday was a key game for the Yankees, because had they lost, they would officially be chasing the division instead of leading it. The question is, will the Yankees be able to continue hitting. Will having the Orioles on their heels be enough to motivate this team to wear their big boy pants? This series in Boston will let us know.
