No more, no less.
You don’t have to guess.
When it’s three you can see
It’s a magic number.
In the second extra-inning game in as many nights, the Yankees emerged victorious in a 12-11 struggle that featured no long balls, 18 pitchers, and 91 at bats. Cabrera played the hero by fielding an Aaron Hill double and throwing a strike to Cano who relayed to Posada to nab Stairs at home in the top of the tenth, by hitting a two-out bloop single to win the game in the bottom half of the frame, and by recording 5 ribs in the affair.
There’s little rest for the weary, as the Jays and Yanks are back at it in an early afternoon game at the Stadium. Mike Mussina gets the ball for the Bombers; he faces Dustin McGowan, whom the Yankees defeated September 12th at Rogers Centre. Boston became the first team to clinch their post-season berth by defeating the SatanFish last night. The Yankees’ magic number to make the post is at three following Detroit’s loss last night at the hands of the Royals; those teams face off again this afternoon as well. Lineups follow, comment away.
