At the top of the 7th, Gardner had a 10-minute, 15-pitch AB which resulted in a walk. Not only was this SUPER FREAKING awesome, but he was covered top-to-bottom in dirt, which made it quite possibly the most adorable at bat of the series.

The Yankees are at Rangers for the next four days then head home, where my girl, Dina, and I will see them on Friday night. Then, on Sunday, my darling office friend, Ruth, and I will be getting to the Stadium at the crack of dawn for our Matsui bobbleheads and chance to glimpse his radiant glory once more on the field at Yankee Stadium.
Have a great week, everyone!
