Mariano faltered in the ninth giving up the tying runs and it took Bernie's eleventh inning two run bomb to save our bacon and give us a big win.
Mussina came up aces today going 7 1/3 giving up six hits, three runs and eight strike outs. Mench had a huge day and almost beat us by himself this afternoon. If Moose keeps up this type of performance, it'll go along way in helping us catch the Red Sox. Aaron Small gets his fourth win without a defeat as he pitched a scoreless inning. (Is that surprising anymore?)
A-Rod, Sheffield and Williams had home runs to power the victory. Who is surprised that Bernie came up big, and Joe praised him after the game. He said:
"this is your time of the year and we need you to be in the lineup to win."We all want Bernie to got out with a bang this season because it's unlikely he'll be playing for us next year and he did that today. Bernie had a flat tire before the game and arrived late to the stadium today. Go figure. lol
Mariano was due to have a few bad appearances and he'll probably get tomorrow off.
Here's the Box Score
