This was the first extra-innings road win for the Yankees since April 14, 2007.
Joe Girardi was on the horn with Brian Cashman after the game. Expect a new reliever tomorrow. No idea as yet who it will be. The bullpen is pretty beat up, especially given that they refuse to use Chris Britton in any sort of tight spot.
Great quote from Mariano Rivera on Ross Ohlendorf:
â€œThat was great. Thatâ€™s how capable he is, to pitch like that. Itâ€™s huge for his confidence, I think. He has great stuff and he showed it. Thatâ€™s what I want to see, a young pitcher use his best stuff and go at them. I was thinking that this was the day he would do what heâ€™s capable of doing.â€
Chien-Ming Wang is 0-2, 5.67 in his last five starts. He’s worried but claimed he is fine physically. His problem, he said, is inconsistency with his arm slot. The problem leaves his sinker high.
Wang trusts his secondary pitches but not enough to just abandon his sinker for an entire game.
Thanks for reading tonight and check back in tomorrow.
