‘Bronx Bombers’ are back!
The ‘Bronx Bombers’ and Derek Jeter broke out of small slump yesterday. Jeter not only hit his first HR of the season, but took two the distance (4-6 for the day)! The Yankees went on to anniliate the formidable foes, Texas Rangers 12-5, yesterday. Curtis Granderson hits his 11th HR, and Mark Teixeira hit his ninth HR. Francisco Cervelli made his return to the line-up known with a grand slam. The Bronx Bombers are back in action! C.C. Sabathia pitched well after giving up four runs in first two innings, he held the Rangers to three hits in the remaining four innings he pitched. His record went to 3-2 with the win. Check out feedback to Jeter breaking slump, courtesy foxsports, C.C. and coach Joe Girardi appreciation of the offensive outburst of the Yankees, courtesy espn:
”Everybody needs a day like this, regardless if you’re swinging well or you’re not swinging well,” Jeter said. ”I just want to be comfortable. … It’s pretty difficult to hit when you’re sitting around trying to think of too many things, and I found myself thinking of things early on.”
”He told me the other day he’s starting to feel good and he showed it today,” said C.C. Sabathia, who got the win despite an erratic outing. ”He’s been a good player for a long time. … Sitting on the bench, he had an at-bat and said, `I’m feeling good.’ That’s exciting to hear.”
“It seems like we either score a ton of runs for him, or none at all,” Joe Girardi said.
“I think these guys pick me up a lot,” he said. “That’s why I’m always talking about just keeping us in the game, because at any time we can have an inning like the eighth inning.”
