I think we all needed that game yesterday. After the debacle that was Wednesday night's game, last night can best be described as either a really delicious meal after a super long day of work, or a healthy bout of make-up sex. CC gave the Yankees what they needed on the mound. The offense gave the Yankees what they needed at the plate. The Red Sox defense gave us the gift of laughter.

The Aaron's are out celebrating right now. And by celebrating, I mean they went and bought a few pairs of red socks and have proceeded to light them on fire. Sources confirm that Aaron Dos has yelled many a profanity at Bostonians. As for the math, well it's similar to yesterday. The unexpected, but much beloved destruction of the Red Sox yesterday has yielded us with few correct answers, so no one person won. Valentin Matos, Elcruzter55, selftitled85, and Lilly tied for 2,000 points. Honestly, if anyone actually predicted 12 walks, they would've earned the victory by that alone.

The Yankees are done with their road trip and are back home to face the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, California in North America on Earth which is the Third Planet from the Sun. Hiroki Kuroda, or HIROK to his twitter fans, takes the mound tonight to face Mike Trout and the others who play with Mike Trout. This whole "winning series" thing seems to be working well for the Yankees thus far. They should continue this trend.

We here at Pinstripe Alley don't like to toot our own horn, but we're doing quite well when it comes to the numbers thanks to the brilliant leadership of Tanya and the insane yet amusing advice of one Greg Kirkland (the latter is 400% not true).
