The Bubba-Bino!

Neil H is at Yankee Stadium with his Father-in-Law tonight and boy is he probably cursing under his breath as he leaves THTRB. A walk-off Home Run deep into the RCF bleachers by none other than Bubba Crosby sealed a 3-2 win for the Yankees. Best part of it all though was he gave that HR pose and he knew he had all of it for his 1st shot in the bigs this year.

A great performance by Wang in which all the out were recorded via the ground ball or the strikeout. He himself started eight 1-3 putouts and showed again why he could be a starter not just in the postseason this time around but a starter for the franchise for years to come.

The Orioles scored two early but the Yanks came back on RBI's from A-Rod and Sheffield. Melvin Mora failed to run out a fair ball which I thought was a really poor show. Mo shut down the Birds 1-2-3 and with it gets the Win.

As it stands down in Tampa Bay Olerud has just struck out to start a strike em out, throw em out inning ending double play in the 8th with the Rays up 7-6. It is 4-4 on the south side between the ChiSox and the Indians. Three very close games tonight, how will they all end up?

3 threw a strike:

I'm not an advocate of violence in baseball, but if I were Eric DuBose, that HR pose from a replacement outfielder with 2 big league home runs would pretty much ensure that Crosby gets it in the ear next time I face him.
