“The fans were into it,” Jorge Posada said. “They were loud the whole game.”
The Yankees actually had not been playing very well at home. They’d lost seven of their past nine at Yankee Stadium, and last night was shaping up to be another tough-to-swallow night. Instead, it was about as uplifting as any win this season.
Joe Girardi: “We had a lot of come-from-behind wins in ’09, and we played extremely well here last year. We need to get back to that. That’s a real good win for us.”
CC Sabathia: “A.J. with the pies, just us coming back from 4-1. Ricky pitched a great game, and for us to get to their bullpen, that’s pretty good.”
Mark Teixeira: “It was great to do that in front of our home crowd, and we hadn’t done it too much this year. To come back and get a big win, especially for CC and the home fans, was nice for us.”
Jorge Posada: “It can turn it around. It’s a good feeling in here when you win a game like that. Everybody is laughing, everybody is looking at A.J. getting ready for Tex. People are looking at the screen and laughing. It’s a good feeling in the clubhouse.”
