Memorable night at the Stadium
I think you’d have to say that was the first instant YES Network classic at the new Yankee Stadium, no?
Melky Cabrera wins it with a walkoff hit after the Yankees come all the way back, spurred on by Brett Gardner’s inside the park home run in a game where tempers flared and Johnny Damon was ejected. Phil Hughes was OK, dodging trouble and keeping the Twins to three runs. Oh, and that A-Rod guy? Four walks.
Joba Chamberlain tries to get things right this afternoon against Nick Blackburn, hoping to avoid the first-inning woes that have plagued him … well, pretty much since college, he says.
