Yahoo! The Bombers finally have done something they have failed to do all season: completed a sweep of the rather lackluster (of late) Red Sox. The first time the Yanks have taken a four-game home stand from their rival since 1985?! The one thing I grew sick of is the continuous mentioning of David Ortiz and his possible enhancement taking of 2003. I mean, it seems as if (the last two games, anyway) that the games were more of a did he or didn’t he. I think the whole scandal has gotten way out of hand and is ruining the great American pasttime.
The series began Thursday night with a 13-6 blow.
The excitement continued Friday night into the wee hours of Saturday until Alex Rodriguez smashed a two run walk-off shot in the bottom of the 15th inning. Marking the first time a Yankee-Red Sox game has gone scoreless through 14 innings and only the fifth time in recorded history that a walk-off homer has been hit in a scoreless 15 or more inning game. A heartbreaker but the pinstripes came out on top.
Saturday, the Yankees also blanked the Sox 5-0
Finally, the first place AL East boys rallied to go up 6-1/2 games with a 5-2 victory. One thing is for sure, Boston will be looking for blood when next the teams meet up. But for now.. good luck to justj‘s beloved Tigers when they travel to Fenway Monday night.

Ah, the end of summer – the importance of each individual game is mounting. Admin wore his Cubs shirt yesterday, which has spelled bad luck for the team all year. I banished the clothing, but he wore it anyway, and they lost, of course! UGH!
