Robinson Cano drove a two-out single up the middle and won the game in the ninth.
It gave my friend Henry – the best Yankees fan – another good day.
“What a game,” Henry said outside the players’ gate. “Robinson Cano was the hero.”
Cano’s hit broke a scoreless tie.
“It was important because we won,” Cano told reporters. “We need to win every game we have left. It felt great to see my teammates celebrating and hear the crowd. It’s something that made me really proud.
“You do it for the fans,” Cano continued. “You want to thank the Yankees fans for their support and for showing up every day to the ballpark.”
Henry returned the favor when Cano left the Stadium.
“It’s Robinson Cano,” Henry shouted. “He’s the hero of today’s game.”
Everyone cheered and Cano waved.
