Yankees 5, Nationals 3

natsyanksfan.gif OK, I wore my Mussina Yankees jersey and my Nationals cap for this game. I was ready for whatever would happen tonight!

My prediction about the score of tonight’s game was wrong…and CC Sabathia didn’t pitch a complete game…and it wasn’t Kip Wells who replaced Shairon Martis. But I was right about Martis pitching well — I certainly didn’t expect him to leave the game with a lead. And I was definitely right about his effort being wasted when the Nats bullpen entered the game. Ironically, Ron Villone was the last pitcher I expected to give up the lead, since he has pitched quite well for the Nationals this season. Oh, and I absolutely did not expect Anderson Hernandez to hit that home run — just the second of his MLB career — off of Sabathia. My jaw nearly hit the floor when that thing left the park! I knew that 1-run lead wouldn’t last…and I was right.

Overall, this game turned out better than I thought it would. I really expected a blowout, so I’m pleased that the Nationals were not humiliated, and I’m pleased that the Yankees won to keep pace with the Red Sox, who defeated the Marlins.

One down…two to go………

GO YANKEES!!!
GO NATIONALS!!!

    I can’t believe that Anderson hit made it all the way out, I thought that Damon was going to catch it. Amazing what leaves that park sometimes.

    Brooklynbound, he shocked the heck out of me with that home run.
    Jane, it was a reverse jinx. LOL
    Julia, I really thought that first game would be a blowout. I was very surprised that it was so close. And tonight’s game was mind-blowing!
