Magic number to one, Yanks can sweep tomorrow.
Play of the Game: Bottom 8, 2 Out, 1-0 NYY: Johnny Damon 2 RBI 1B
Player of the Game: C.C. Sabathia: W, 7.0 IP, H, 0 R, 2 BB, 8 SO
In C.C’s last 16 starts, he has a 2.57 ERA and has struck out 108 batters. He has just been great for the Yankees and came up huge for them today. The Yankees magic number is now just one. Who would have thought that the Yankees would win a series in LA and come home and have a chance to sweep Boston? Now the Yankees have a legit chance to clinch against Boston. To me, that’s the last goal left in the 2009 regular season.
Coming Up Next:
Like I said, the Yankees will have a chance to sweep Boston, and clinch the division. It’ll be Pettitte vs Byrd.
