4th inning, I get an email that violates all long time standing baseball rules - pointing out that someone (AJ Burnett), in some game (ALDS Game 4), has only allowed walks (has not given up a hit) - as such, roughly inside of 30 seconds of reading that Victor Martinez plants a ball in the Right Center bleachers. Thanks for that.
Putting Crash's indiscretions aside for a moment - the Yanks bats came alive roughing up the Tigers 10-1 in front of their home crowd.
A-Rod and Tex actually got on base, got a hit or two, and have upped their series avg. to .143.
But the game star was Curtis Granderson - two catches that made me wince - saved runs, saved the game.
Nova takes the hill for the series decider - if he comes through again, he may very well cement his pinstripes for years to come.
Winner takes on defending champ Texas.
