The Yankees have won six games in a row, four of them have been pretty crushing victories. Here’s a quick overview for the forgetful:
- July 18th vs Oakland – 7-1
- July 19th vs Oakland – 4-3
- July 20th vs Oakland – 2-1
- July 21st vs Minnesota – 12-4
- July 22nd vs Minnesota – 8-2
- July 23rd vs Minnesota – 5-1
Today’s game against Minnesota wasn’t even really close. Mike Mussina looked really fantastic. Minnesota is not exactly the world’s greatest hitting team and it was the B-lineup but his 2-seam fastball is continuing to get great movement and his control is absolutely pinpoint. So, give credit where credit is due Mussina is pitching well. The biggest knock against him lately is that he doesn’t go past six innings, but he pitched 8 with 7Ks today. He got a standing ovation from the crowd and tipped his hat. Very nice to see, I really hope he keeps this up.
