Disaster Averted

What just happened? Did we just see the Yankees blow a 6-0 lead, fall behind 7-6, tie the game up, go ahead 8-7 and then win on a boneheaded baserunning play by Carl Crawford? Can we all start breathing again now?

The bottom line is the Yankees got a win they desperately needed. After taking that lead, losing this game would have been a crushing blow. Instead, they won, they are back in first (not really since they are tied in the loss column) and they have a chance to walk out of Tampa with a series win.

That’s enough for now. Let’s all just enjoy this and save the analysis for tomorrow.
