Texas 7, NYY 3.
Beating the Yankees is sweet enough.
Beating them by playing their type of game – chasing the
starting pitcher early by working counts, taking advantage of opportunities, executing
without trying to do too much, playing lockdown defense, and letting the best closer
in the league shut things down – feels spectacular.
And man, if Chris Davis can use this game against the team that
spent a 50th-round draft choice on him in high school and didn’t
even bother making him an offer to sign, and settle into some semblance of a
groove that even hints at what he did last June, July, and September, that
changes things. Potentially a bunch.
White Sox 4, Angels 2.
