6 Outs To Go

I've got to make this a quick one. I'm heading to Cooperstown in the morning for the annual Hall Of Fame Game. It's about a 4-hour drive from Buffalo and 5:30am comes early so there won't be time to blog about the Yankees game after it's over. We just made it out of the 7th with a 5 run lead.
I was glad to see the offense build on what it did at the end of Saturday's game. Through 7 innings, we've seen 6 runs on 11 hits. I'm not assuming that they've turned a corner. But tonight's game is definitely a step in the right direction. Jorge and Jeter continue to swing hot bats. A-Rodacus went yard for the 2nd straight game. Matsui had 2 hits. And Abreu! 2 hits and a walk. When Blind Bobby gets on base 3 times, things are good.
You had to be impressed with T-Clip's outing. 3 hits and 6 Ks over 6 innings. Nice. Another impressive outing by a Yankees rookie. The future of the Yankees pitching staff looks pretty bright. Yankees fans should be very excited about the young arms down on the farm. And how 'bout Clip's double? Nice stroke from the kid.
Proctor just got Reyes looking to end the 7th. 6 outs to go. Let's get some insurance and here's hoping the bullpen does it's job and gets the rook his 1st ML win.
