Yankees Fight For A Wild-Card Spot, Beat The Orioles!

Robinson Cano pounds out Brett Gardner after hitting a homerun

Robinson Cano (l.) pounds out Brett Gardner (r.) after hitting a solo homerun in the eighth inning at Camden Yards in Baltimore last night.

“This group fights and it will continue to fight. We got down tonight and were able to take the lead,’’ Joe Girardi said of the 3-1 hole his club was in after four innings. “We got a huge homer by Robbie and a huge hit by Lyle.’’ – nypost

Jeter says there is “no doubt” he will be back next season


fter the Yankees received bad news that star Derek Jeter will be out for the rest of the season, they fought their way back into the game to win (5-3 over the Baltimore Orioles), and are now only one game out of the Wild-Card! A-Rod, Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano each teed off with solo home-runs to help the cause, and Cano gave the Yankees a temporary lead (4-3) in the eighth inning with his timely blast! What ended up being the difference was actually what followed: Granderson hit a triple and Lyle Overbay scored him on a game-winning RBI single! Mo gave up a run in the ninth inning, but held up for his 43rd save in 50 chances this season! The Yankees (78-68) are literally only one game back from the Tampa Bay Rays (78-66) for the last spot in the AL Wild-Card (for the Playoffs)!
