*Picture from the Boston Globe*
Manny hit TWO bombs tonight: 893 feet is the estimated distance of the two combined. That is some SERIOUS hitting: both hits went to the deepest part of the park.
Other than Rakes figuring out how to say WHY properly, this has been the highlight of July for me. Manny is back to being, well, Manny.
After back to back 1-0 games, one a win and one a loss, a good old fashioned 14-9 game was just what the Doctor ordered: though, if I had my druthers, it would have came without Gabbard morphing into Rick Ankiel in the 5th and Julian gacking up the 7th inning to make it so close.
Hopefully, Kason uses tonight as a life lesson, and bounces back next time: for the first 4 innings, he looked like a Hall of Fame candidate. Just don't let the meltdown get in your head young man.
Finally, as an added plus, the Yankees lost to the Royals 7-0, which means the Sox have a 7 1/2 game lead again.
All is well.
