    (26-22) after sweeping the Athletics, we lose to a walk off homer in the ninth inning. There is only a 4.5 game spread between first place and last in the AL East.

    (26-23) Pettitte loses his first game on the road giving up 5 runs in 7 frames. Bad stats regarding RISP and LOB. Angels are poised to sweep.

    (27-23) Nova goes 6 and 2/3 to get win # 6. A couple of homers and a sac fly seals the deal to prevent the sweep. Yankess are one and a half games out of first. Now on to Motor City.

    (28-23) CC gets his 7th win courtesy of some long balls and good defense. He struggled a little here and there, but still went 7 frames. Only 1.5 games out of first in the AL East.

    (29-24) A wild one last night with Kuroda keeping it close and today they come in with a win to take 2 of 3 in Motown.

    (30-24) A shutout for the Bombers with Pettitte going 7 and a 1/3 and 10 K's. Martin got his groove back with a Grand Slam. Now a half game out of first place.

    (31-24) Nice effort from Nova with eight frames and one earned run. Let's hope for a sweep tomorrow before the Subway Series.

    (31-25) Well 2 of 3 ain't bad. Santana vs. Kuroda tonight. We'll see how that goes.

    (32-25) I thought that the score would be closer considering the starting pitchers. Kuroda was masterful on the mound last night and too many long balls off of Santana sealed the deal. Hughes vs. Gee tonight.

    (33-25) A close game last night. Hughes and Gee battled it out, but it was Teixeira who broke the tie and Granderson put the icing on the cake. Pettitte vs. Niese today. Yankees are still having trouble getting runs across when the bases are loaded.

    Been a lifelong Yankee fan since my Dad took me to my first game in 1951. It was the transition year from DiMaggio to Mantle. The memory is indelible.

    (35-25) Shutout in Atlanta. Nova pitched a great game and is now 8 and 2 on the season. Great management from the bench regarding pitchers. Team RISP was a miserable 1 for 8. Gotta work on that. It's up to CC to keep us in first place tonight.

    (36-25) A-Rod ties the game up in the top of the eighth with a Grand Slam and Swisher puts the icing on the cake. Kuroda vs. Hudson tonight.

    (37-25) Sweep! Kuroda fans 8 over 6 innings and the bullpen holds on. Granderson with a two run shot seals the deal. Off tonight and the Nationals tomorrow.

    (38-25) Hughes goes a solid 6 innings and the offense breaks it open in the top of the 7th. That's seven straight wins.
