It stands to reason that if Tuesday was a crusher, then the need to win last night was greater than normal.
That’s how I wrote it in The Journal News.
If they lost last night a lot of the good feelings gained from the winning streak might have been lost.
Winning right away made it easier to forget Tuesday.
That was the big thing. Next was John Maine winning for the first time in a month. They go nowhere if he doesn’t pitch well.
