AL Wild Card: Inevitability
I was thinking the game would end in a Yankees win, but I'd hoped it would be closer than that.
I dunno, something about this bullpen brought out the best in the Yankee bats, with Judge and Stanton going yard, and RBIs from Hicks and Voit, making it a deserved win for one of the best hitting teams of the year. And I'm also pretty happy with Luke Voit for going from a no-name St. Louis farmhand to the starting first baseman of a playoff Yankee team. Hats off to him.
The Yanks will need to prepare for this Red Sox series, but they seem to have the momentum, and they seem to have a knack for penetrating shoddy bullpens, so it could go pretty well.
As for the losing squad...
I really hope they can keep the basis of this squad together and make another run next year, because there was something refreshingly fun about these guys.
TONIGHT: NL BATTLES.
