From a few weeks before: these messy games are the ones the Yankees have to win. However they got there, a two-run lead late, over the Royals, with CC on the mound--yeah, gotta close these ones out.
PLay of the game was neither A-Rod's homer nor Swisher breaking it open, but earlier--with Posada having thrown the ball away down third and inches from hitting the Daily Double, Texeira leapin as high as Tex can leap, to save maybe two runs.
The Royals tie, who knows. But Tex brought the ball down and made the play.
Three games up.
