Yankees beat Astros in Tight Game
The offense was able to score three runs off a starting pitcher they have never faced before, which is a victory in my book. Whenever your 6-9 hitters consist of Adams, Almonte, Ryan and Murphy, you probably don't expect to score many runs from that part of the order. However, David Adams got the big hit, a two-run double of the top of the right field wall as the second run that scored was all the Yankees needed to win the game. Mark Reynolds also chipped in with an RBI single. The rest of the lineup had three hits combined. If the Yankees were playing any other team tonight it would have been a loss. Thankfully, the Yankees played the Astros who are playing historically bad this year.
Andy Pettitte makes his final career start tomorrow against his former team where he wore #21 for three seasons. If the Yankees send him out with a win and a save by Mariano Rivera, it would be a perfect ending for two perfect ball players.
