Bronx, NY – Half my life is over as the New York Yankees overpowered the Texas Rangers by a final score of 7-2. Truth be told, Yankee Stadium is possibly one of the best places to work through an existential crisis. Why do you think we’re here? Do you know?

The only thing exciting about Sunday’s matinee at the ballpark was the foul balls flying to the stands. Outside of a home run ball, the foul has to be one of the most coveted fan prize in baseball. You catch one and you’ll always be connected to the action in the field.

From the pitcher who threw the ball, to the batter who swung away and to you catching it, you’ll forever be connected to that play. As far as the score goes… that’s out of your control. Sit back, enjoy the game and always, be ready for any incoming foul ball.

With the season rounding to third base, the Yankees have not been able to put a dent in the Boston Red Sox’s 9.5 games lead in the American League East. Despite winning 6 out of their last 7 games, the Yankees best chance of making it to the postseason will be through winning the Wild Card. Sunday’s win was exactly what the Pinstripes needed.

Pacing the Yanks was LHP CC Sabathia who struck out seven batters in six innings of work. For the game, Sabathia tossed 97 pitches. Complimenting him was the Pinstripe offense who produced a 12-hit day as they jumped out to a 7-0 lead after six innings. Homering for the fifth time in six games was Giancarlo Stanton.

Stanton Island’s solo shot in the first inning was his 30th of the season.

With the season now in August, the governor of Stanton Island leads the Pinstripes in home runs. Leading 5-0 in the seventh inning, social media guru Didi Gregorius blasted his 21st homer of the season. It was a two-run homer for the Notrious Gregorius as the Yanks won this series 3-1. The best thing about baseball in August is that it’ll soon be over and we’ll be able to focus in September where everything is finalized for the postseason.
