For the past few years, it seemed like the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Disneyland, and No Doubt seemed to have the Yankees' number. But for the past two games, the Bombers actually (shocker) beat them!
Last night's game might have been the best one of the year so far. After the Yanks blew that 4-0 lead, and the Angels led by as much as 9-4, the Bombers chipped away at the lead. Once Mark Teixeira walked to open the ninth, with the score 9-8, I figured the Yanks had a good chance to win. And they did.
Whenever there's a walkoff win, I always rewind the DVR about five or six times to watch the celebration. Am I the only one to do that?
My two fave things about last night's celebration were seeing Teixeira's reaction as he crossed home plate, and watching Hideki Matsui jump out onto the field and jump up and down. Good stuff. Oh, and I enjoy watching rookie Ramiro Pena, too.
Also liked seeing Andy Pettitte afterwards talk about how he switched from being in a bad mood to a good mood!
Anyhow, the Yanks are on a roll. Hope they keep it up. And I hope Nick Swisher will play today, after getting hit by a pitch and knocked out of last night's game.
