Hard to see where that came from. This is just a streaky team is all.
Dan Uggla singled home Michael Bourn with two out in the first, then came home on a Freddie Freeman homer. There would be more to come. The Yankees got a solo homer from Derek Jeter to cut it to 3-1 in the bottom of the inning, then Martin Prado hit a solo homer in the third to make it 4-1. More solo homers followed, Jason Heyward in the fourth, David Ross in the fifth, Endy Chavez for the Yankees in the bottom of the inning to make it 6-2.
In the sixth, the Yankees cut it to 6-4 with back-to-back solo homers, and Jonny Venters replaced Tommy Hanson. After a walk, he got a GIDP to end the threat. The Yankees got a run off of Chad Durbin in the seventh to make it 6-5, and you’re getting really worried.
But Freeman drove in a run with a groundout in the eighth, and Heyward’s second homer, with a man aboard, made it 9-5. Prado singled in a run in the ninth for the final score. Nine homers is a record for pseudo-Yankee Stadium.
