Yankees Rangers

Yankees Rangers, The night before the American League Championship Series between the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers?

Long seemed that the key would be Michael Young 2 AB doublet, you know, the nails hammered into the coffin and closed the game for Rangers. Not this time.

AB is the large half of the Yankees in the eighth inning, but was a manifestation of bullets and bleeders and walks, not bombs and explosions (hooray for alliteration properties of the English language!).

Gardner singled, Jeter twice, Swisher walked, walked Tex, simple Arod, Cano singled, Marcus simple. 05/06 Yankees.

I think Brett Gardner individual sums the game very well, know why after the jump.

Fangraphs think Cano singled to center to tie the game was the big play of the game, statistically; it is true that the successful game to tie increased our chances of winning by 26.6% (one of the biggest changes is not decisive runs the Yankees have been season). But Cano just came on the first pitch thrown by a new relief pitcher, after Cano singled and homered his last two airbags. A great hitter in the middle of a run saw the ball and hit the ball. Not much interest or compellinganlysis there.

Next on the list is Arod Fangraphs is unique but has the same feel to me like Cano, a great hitter see a hittable first pitch, stencil and be lucky just to get by gardeners and found a piece of grass.

Swisher and Tex rides are difficult for me individually, and are therefore struggle with ‘strike zone as a battle with the umpire Gerry Davis Rangers pitching and scan reports.

So let broken bat Thames’ RBI single green light, Jeter is twice that probably should have been a single case of pinch-hitter turned left fielder Dave Murphy cuts the ball cleanly and throw to second instead of third, Gutty sandy and Brett Gardner went landslide alone.

I believe that the Appellate Body Gardner best sums up the game because that’s what this victory was, snatched victory from the jaws of defeat by a strange combination of luck and talent. The Rangers run cleanly, the Yankees did not, but a couple of lucky bounces and some frantic overmanagement bullpen later, the Yankees won anyway.
