With the season seemingly slipping away, Alex Rodriguez and Jason Giambi—the most maligned of Yankees—came through with a pair of clutch 9th inning home runs to salvage a “must-win” and stave off a sweep by the charging Indians. With their difficult schedule ahead, the Yanks can ill-afford to fall farther behind the Sox and their various wild-card competitors. Those circumstances made this night’s game all the sweeter. Congratulations Yankees, and special kudos to both Shawn Chacon for another fine start (but for goodness sake, break in that cap!), and Mariano Rivera, for closing it out with typical panache. Let’s hope this is the beginning of another streak.
