Masahiro Tanaka really must be broken if the Mariners were able to score 4 runs off of him over 6 innings.
Ariel Miranda had a pretty good outing, giving up 2 runs in 5.1 innings, and was probably pulled a little too early, but I guess I understand the rationale behind it: Aaron Judge was coming up, and Steve Cishek seemed like as good a righty as any to try to take him down. Of course, he failed, because Aaron Judge was forged from the gods and inhabits the power of a thousand bat-wielding maniacs, but that’s neither here nor there.
The bullpen let the Yankees tie this one, then the Mariners regained the lead, then they tied it again, then the Mariners won it in extras on a walk-off single. Much rejoicing was had by all.
Look, I’m pretty damn hungover, and no one is reading this anyway, so let’s call it a weekend and get after it tomorrow.
