It seems as though every time I look at the last ten games of the New York Yankees, their record is 5-5. I guess this explains why they are at exactly .500 after taking three out of four games against the Cleveland Indians. I keep going back and forth as to whether or not they should be a seller come the trade deadline or keep the team intact in an attempt to make the playoffs. From a fan’s perspective, I am hoping that what happened on Saturday is a springboard for the rest of the season.
The Yanks were trailing 5-3 in the sixth inning when Brett Gardner had perhaps the second most important hit of his team’s season. His three-run triple put New York in front by a score of 6-5. Brian McCann‘s double in the 11th inning might be the biggest hit of them all. That blow gave the Yanks a 7-6 victory and assured the Bombers of heading into the break with some much-needed momentum.
