Things were pretty much decided in the 6th when David Robertson came into a 2-1 game with the bases loaded and one out. He would come up huge, striking out BJ Upton and Casey Kotchman to end the inning. The Yanks would score two more in the top of the 7th to increase their lead to three.
It's just one win, but it came when they needed it the most. Hopefully, it's something they can build upon. Who knows, maybe after getting destroyed in the papers for the last few days they'll play with a chip on their shoulder. They did seem a little extra pumped up on the bench tonight, but obviously winning for the first time in a week will do that to you.
The Yanks start a two-game series with the O's in Baltimore tomorrow before interleague play, and the Subway Series, kick off on Friday.
