At last, our long national nightmare is over. Derek Jeter singled to center off Chase Wright in the fourth. Jeter then went to third when Alex Rodriguez singled to center. A-Rod took second on an bobble by Brett Gardner in center.
A-Rod and Jeter then hugged and sang “Just The Two Of Us” over the PA system. Everybody was crying. “No question, this is wonderful,” Joe Torre said.
(OK, I made that part up).
Ben Davis, in the game for Posada, drilled a sac fly to the base of the wall in center to drive in Jeter.
It’s 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth and all the regulars (except Minky and Melky) are out.
