Bottom 3rd, 1st and 2nd, 2 outs – Robinson Cano flies out to center field.
You can talk about whether Joe Girardi should have pinch hit for Martin all you want, but the Yankees had six opportunities to drive in a bunch of runs in a hurry, and all they got was a bases loaded walk. A-Rod is going to be fitted for goat horns again, but half the team made huge outs when the Yankees needed a hit.
You also have to give some serious credit to Doug Fister and Joaquin Benoit, who both threw some really good pitches when they had to. Benoit’s seventh inning change-ups, in particular, were just ridiculously nasty, and he threw some of his best pitches of the year when they counted most.
