Late Inning Heroics Lift Yankees

The Good

Back to back homeruns by Teixeira and Headley tied and won the game for us last night in the 9th inning.  This gives us some momentum and although the Yankees haven't been able to capitalize on it in the past, they have yet another chance.

Also good, Jeter got us on the board with a 2-run double in the 3rd inning and later scored on a Beltran single to tie the game.

The Bad

Capuano couldn't stand up against his former team going 4.1 innings and allowing 4 runs.  3 of which came on homeruns to Ortiz.

The Ugly

Today we begin a series against first place Kansas City, as we continue our struggle to make our way into the second wild card spot.  3 years ago, that previous sentence would have sounded like baseball from another dimension.  One where the Yankees are subpar, the Royals are looking like division champions, and a second wild card spot exists to give hope to struggling teams.  This alternate dimension is our present reality.   Your mind has been officially blown!

The Yankees Flex a Little
