The Yankees broke the rules.
When it comes to doubleheaders, it’s said: “They are hard to win and easy to lose and you usually split.”
The Yankees took two from Texas yesterday.
“We had some extra aggression,” Doug Mientkiewicz said. “We went out there with a bit of an attitude. We just need to keep it going.”
It’s not as easy as it sounds. One tough game is an emotional drain. Two close ones will make you want to sleep for a week.
The team got back to New York just in time for breakfast and they need to be ready for Seattle tonight.
It won’t be easy, but this team is ready for the grind.
