The shrieking and standing started in Section 205 in the ninth inning on Saturday at Yankee Stadium, where the 47,067 in attendance finally saw some sort of momentum to call their own. With little to cheer for and no cause for optimism in a two-hour, 32-minute sprint of a game against Seattle, the wave began to make its rounds in the Bronx.
Felix Hernandez made sure it no one in New York’s lineup provided similar excitement in a 1-0 Yankees loss.
“Today, he was better than us,” said Derek Jeter. “That’s pretty much all you can say.”
That really is pretty much all you can say.
I do sort of wish the Yanks had Kuroda going tomorrow instead of Fredo, but no team in the world would do that, so it is a bit silly of me to even sort of complain about it.
