Grind It boys

The Yanks played tight baseball last night and beat the Birds 2-1 at Camden Yards. A-Rod hit his 47th shot of the year putting him in sole possession of 1st place for Home Runs by a right handed batter in a single season for the Yankees. An inning later Derek Jeter singled home Jorge Posada from 3rd, which would turn out to be the game winning hit.

I didn't see the game, I was fast asleep knowing I had an early start today but waking up to a Yanks win and defeats for both the Red Sox and the Indians is always pleasant. The Yanks magic number now stands at four as they look to take the AL East pennant. The Sox suffered a bad case of Lillyitis as once again for some unknown reason the former Yankee dealt in Fenway to make his record 3-0 in five starts against the Boston club this season.

The Indians lost a very tight one at home to the Devil Rays, somehow Seth McClung got the win and didn't give up a run, were the Indians all fast asleep in the batters box? So the Yanks have a game lead on both the Sox in the East and the Indians and the Sox in the Wildcard standings.

It could all change tonight though but hopefully Aaron Small will keep up his amazing record and the Yanks can go into Beantown full of confidence.
