In my sim...ugh, just ugh.
Orioles tagged Cole for 7 runs IN THE FIRST INNING, Nunez hit a homer, Santander hit a homer, Ruiz hit a homer. Cole can't make it out of the first!!! The Yankees chipped away a little bit but I extended the lead to 10-3. And then Cobb just $#!*@ the bed all over the place, gave almost all of it back. Urshela hit a 3 run homer to make it 10-6 in the 5th. And I just wanted Cobb to get through 5, I felt like that wasn't too much to ask. Then Stanton hits a 3 run homer and it's 10-9.
Bottom of the 6th, Voit tied it with a double. And into extra innings it went...into the 11th. 12th....13th. I'm wearing out their bullpen, working counts, I survived Ottavino, Britton, Chapman. I'm coming up with key double plays, I'm playing shifts and they're working. Every pitching move I make works. I get two great innings from Fry, I get another two innings from Kopech (yes, I traded for him).
14th inning. Still knotted at 10. Ruiz starts it with a single. And then PAT @#*%ING VALAIKA GOES DEEP. 12-10! I'm gonna win!
So I bring in Hunter Harvey because Kopech is gassed and I have Bleier warming just in case. Harvey promptly walks Gardner. And then he walks Voit. And then Harvey gets injured because that's what Harvey does.
In comes Bleier who strikes out Torres. Then Stanton singles softly up the middle to load the bases for...Gary Sanchez.
And then Sanchez tattoos it 434 feet. Game winning, walk off Grand Slam.
I've read yesterday that they are also seeing heart damage in patients. At this point they don't know if the virus is doing the damage or if it is related to the stress that the illness puts the patient under.
Warmed the bench for a couple of seasons on the JV team in High School. I peaked in Little League at age 12 when I made the All-Stars - I was an RBI machine, lol. It was all downhill from there, lol.
Now I feel like Al Bundy. 🙂
