Swisher says, ‘It’s pie time!’

swisher box score I think it’s safe to say the reason why wasn’t able to provide the box score right after the game was because Nick Swisher pied it.

Yes, Swisher was pied today. He hit a two-run, walk-off blast in the ninth to lead the Yankees to a 3-2 win over the Orioles. Baltimore was just two outs shy of sweeping New York.

Best of All: Ivan Nova pitched well enough for a win, but didn’t get the run support: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 6 K.

The bullpen did a really nice job of holding the Orioles to two runs. A lot of times in the past we’ve scene the bullpen allow one extra insurance run late and that comes back to haunt the Yankees. Today, that didn’t happen and Swisher made the bullpen look like champs.

Worst of All: It would’ve been awful if the Orioles had swept the Yankees at home. It hasn’t happened since 1986.

The Yanks only had four hits and six base runners off Brad Bergesen. Really?

Coming Up: Three runs won’t be enough this weekend, as the Yankees head down to Texas for a three-game series.
