Wow. The Red Sox blew an early 6-zip lead tonight – and lost to the Tigers by a score of 12-8.
So, now, with 34 games to go, the Yankees are just 2 games back in the lost column of 1st place in the AL East.
It will be very interesting to see what the standings look like just about two weeks from now. That’s when the Red Sox come into Yankee Stadium for a three game set.
For the longest time now, it seemed like the Yankees would need those games to try and get closer to Boston. Now, the way things are going, maybe it will be the Red Sox who need to win those games to try and get back into first?
With a few breaks, the Yankees might be in first in the AL East by the close of this month. Amazing.
