Short Rest

The Yankees jumped back into the game as quickly as they had slipped out of it. But their ninth-inning rally fell short and everyone headed home.

“It’s a day game tomorrow,” said my friend Javier outside the players’ gate. “We all gotta sleep fast.”

A day game after a night game feels better following a loss.

“We’ll forget about this after a win,” Javier said. “Joba is starting and the guys will keep swinging the hot bats.”

Javier smiled and said:

“I’ll be ready to go on short rest, too.”

The Yanks need a win and they need to be ready for the Angels.
