– *WHAT’S GOING ON TOMARROW?*
Andy Pettitte (8-6) vs. Roy Halladay (11-4)
It’s anyone’s ballgame with these 2 on the mound…
– *MELKY HITS FOR THE CYCLE!*
Despite three losses in Chicago, the Yankees managed to avoid the sweep and maintain first place in the AL East. The entire game was epic, with both clubs notching a combined 26 hits, 13 RBI’s, and 76 at bats.
The highlite of the game had to be Melky Cabrera hitting for the cycle, (the first cycle recorded by the Yankees since 1995.) The final checkmark Cabrera needed as the game came to a close was the dreaded triple… and with a shot to the wall in right, (in the 9th inning no less,) – he slid into third safely for the milestone…
Sabathia walked away with the win thanks to the rally – and New York avoided what would of been the first sweep since the All-Star break. Signal Hughes and ‘Mo to wrap things up, and you blow the whistle with another clockwork finish.
