Yankees Stretch Rally Mariners, Reward Grandy’s Return To Lineup!

Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

Robinson Cano gives teammate Ichiro Suzuki a pound after hitting a clutch two-RBI double in the seventh inning stretch on Tuesday night at Yankee stadium.

“All year long, he’s been driving in runs,” Cano said of Overbay, who has become much more than a run-of-the-mill fill-in for Mark Teixeira. “It doesn’t matter if it’s a righty or a lefty out there, he finds a way to get guys in.” – nypost

Curtis Granderson returns to Yankees

“It’s just like another Opening Day, nerves coming into it since it’s the first game of the 2013 season, to be here in Yankee Stadium for the first time since last season,” said Granderson, who went 0-for-3 with a walk. “All of those different things ran through [my mind], the emotions, the excitement.

“To get the first ball, the first at-bat out of the way is definitely a relief. Now I can … get back to playing baseball.’’ – nypost

he NY Yankees put up a huge seventh inning stretch rally behind Robinson Cano and Lyle Overbay to overcome the Seattle Mariners, 4-3 last night, and rewarded Curtis Granderson’s return to the lineup! Grandy broke his wrist on the first pitch of Spring Training, and finally came back into the Yankees lineup last night! The Yankees got the best of the Mariners ace King Felix (Hernandez) once he left the game in the sixth inning after throwing eight K’s in six innings and only giving up one run! C.C. Sabathia seemed to get some velocity and location back striking out 10 batters in 6 1/3 innings pitched! Neither pitcher got the W! Mo got his 16th save in 16 tries, and the Yankees improved to the AL East best record (25-14)!
