Last night, I ranted about the Yankees, all while celebrating the Rangers beating Mariano Rivera in the 10th inning.
Tonight, I'm eating a little humble pie after the Yankees came back from a 6-1 deficit to win 7-6. I was begging for a little run support for Cliff Lee and finally got it. Unfortunately, Lee didn't give up his normal 1 run and the Rangers bullpen couldn't get the save in the 9th.
Elvis Andrus did his part in the bottom of the 9th, hitting a lead off triple in his first ever appearance against Rivera. That was all Rivera gave up though, closing the door on Young, Hamilton and Guerrero. Unlike last night, the Yankees best beat the Rangers best.
I should be happy with a split I suppose, but blowing a 6-1 lead is hard to swallow.
So is this humble pie.
