Yanks take the first two

Dad arrived in town yesterday evening. I had already watched the Yankees win the first game of their doubleheader against the Red Sox. Once Dad arrived, I sat down to watch the second game of the doubleheader, which turned out to be the longest 9 inning game in MLB history at 4 hours 45 minutes. The Yanks too that game too, 14-10. They are now up 3-1/2 games on the Red Sox and even if the lost the last three games of the series, they still come out on top. But the Yanks have scored 26 runs in two games. That’s a good sign.

I’m going to miss the game today, Randy Johnson vs. Beckett. But I’m hoping for another win.
