The Yankees were looking to win after the A’s broke their 6
game win streak. The Angels broke through versus Burnett right away when Kendry
Morales had an infield hit to drive in Bobby Abreu who had doubled. The Yankees
answered with 3 runs in the 3rd on Derek Jeter, A-Rod, and Robby
Cano RBI hits including Bobby Wilson’s injury. The Angels scored 3 runs of
their own in the bottom half of the inning, 2 of them coming with 2 outs. The
game stayed the same, AJ Burnett making a nice snag that could have easily been
the defensive play of the game but no. The game slowly became a thriller and
then in the 8th Kendry Morales launched a 2 run shot on a screwed up
curveball. Fuentes came in for the save and closed it out.

Player of the Game:
Kendry Morales:
Kendry had 3 hits, 2 runs, and 3 RBI’s, half of his team’s
runs. His 2 run shot in the 8th, the clutch game winning shot, gave
the Angel’s a win along with his 3 hits and him being on base 4 times to give
his team the win.

Play of the Game:
Teixeira knocks out Bobby Wilson:
This was not a beautiful defensive play
obviously but a semi-dirty play that risked the season of Wilson. It started
with Cano singling to right field and Bobby Abreu firing home. The throw missed
the plate but Tex mowed Bobby Wilson over when he turned his body to be
prepared for the tag, but it never came as Tex never slid right giving Wilson a
concussion and an injured ankle. Mike Scoiscia and Joe Girardi insisted that it
wasn’t a dirty play but Tex could of slid normally but didn’t. Plus, Tex was
hit by a pitch and could have done it in retaliation… which is dirty

Drive of the Game:
Kendry Morales’s 2 run shot in the 8th:
I almost started to cry when
Joba screwed up the slider and Morales jacked it into the night over Swish’s
extended glove to give the Angel’s a 2 run lead in the 8th which they
would unfortunately keep.
