Holy Deborah Van Valkenburgh Batman! That was too close for comfort. Oh, those LOBs. Nice tag by Jeter to end it.
Speaking of Jeter, he made it what Joey Tribianni would call a moo point, but, I would have pinch-hit for Cano with Bellhorn on the 7th with the score 4-4, and the bases loaded, with the lefty on the mound.
Speaking of the 7th, it was nice that Wang managed to get into that frame. When I saw Proctor warming up with Embree in the 5th, I freaked. Every game is must win, no?
Memo to Torre: Only use Scott (The Mouth Breather, seriously, doesn’t it seem like his mouth is always open?) Proctor when you’re up by 5 or more. Do not bring him into a close game.
The Yankees magic number is 21. Any combination of Boston losses and Yankees wins that equal 21 means the Yankees will win the A.L. East.
