Brett Gardner created the first run of the game with his speed: beating out a chopper to second, going first to third on a single to right, and then scoring on a groundout. Robinson Cano then drove in Curtis Granderson from second to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead.
Freddy Garcia has kept the smoke and mirrors game going for another seven innings, and D-Rob and Mariano Rivera followed with a clean frame each.
Pinstripe Alley has been able to retrieve transcripts of the conversation between Jorge's arms and legs during his pivotal 6th inning AB -
Arms: We should go opposite field, just like Robbie did in the 3rd inning. The team'll be set up with runners on first and second, with only one out!
Legs: Yeah, but Pena, Nunez and Cervelli are the next 3 batters. And even if one of them hits the ball, we'll have to run. We don't like to run because we don't run well.
Arms: You have to do it for the team!
Legs: We don't want to!
Arms: What if we hit the ball farther? We could pull it, and if we hit a double, then you won't have to run as far when the little guys come to bat.
Legs: But we have to run to second base. That's 180 feet. Too far.
Arms: Damn it, legs! What do you want to do then?
Legs: Let's walk back to the dugout. It worked in all of April.
Arms: April sucked, and we had to sit on the bench a lot.
Legs: Oh yeah. [thinking...] Let's walk around the bases, and then sit down on the bench.
Arms: We can do that?
Legs: Sure, you just have to hit the ball over the fence. Then you can go around the bases as slow as you want. You can even flip the bat and do a little pirouette like Big Papi.
Arms: But we're not strong enough to get it over the fence on our own.
Legs: Well, sure, but we can work together. Ready? One, two... Three! ["It is high. It is far..."]
Arms: This is nice. A little breeze. Flex as we round second base.
Legs: This is the life. Don't have to work too hard. And now to go sit on the bench!
