I went to the game last night, and for eight innings, I had a great seat, ate some good food, had fun, and watched the Orioles battle for eight innings against C.C. Sabathia and the Yankees. However, when Jim Johnson came on for the ninth inning, you could smell the Yankees plotting a comeback, planning a attack, and trying their best to warn another victory despite having a comfortable lead over the Red Sox in the American League East.
The New Yorkers might have a store-bought team; however, they have a killer instinct, and each guy on that team is fighting for a worthy cause -- that's of course, a championship. They used a nine-run seventh inning, where they drew walks and got hit after hit to dismantle the Orioles, 10-2, in what was a fell-fought game which later turned into a mess. Johnson gave up five runs in the fateful frame, and replacement Dennis Sarfate was not even better by a longshot. Kam Mickolio -- who came into the game in the sixth inning with the game tied, gave up two runs off an Alex Rodriguez two-RBI single in the seventh-- took the loss.
The Bronx Bombers came to win, and by the end of the night on Wednesday, they got the brooms out and swept the Orioles.
