G106: Rangers beat the Bronx Bombers, 6-2

Oh, the joy of beating the Yankees in Yankee stadium! Oh, the irritation that the Red Sox lost, and couldn’t take advantage of it.
When this game started, I feared the worst. Darren Oliver in Yankee Stadium? I had the feeling of 9-2 going into this game. And, the way it started, I felt I was right – Ted Lilly was perfect through the first four innings or so.
However, Raffy broke that up with a big majestic HR into the upper deck in right field. A couple of innings later, Arod jacked one, as did Pudge to put us up 4-2. We scored a few more runs in the ninth for insurance, and Venafro had some trouble in the bottom of the ninth, so Zim came in, and got a save anyway.
Great game – especially beating the Yankees!
