Order Restored in the Bronx

The Yankess are hosting the Boston Red Sox in a critical, yet simultaneously meaningless battle in the AL East.

Top of the ninth, tie score, bases loaded, two outs, Doug Mirabelli batting for the Sox: stand up and cheer, fans, this is why you bought a ticket. Baseball doesn't get much more exciting. Ooops, pop-up to Jeter. Onward....

Holy Cow, is that a shot of an overhead blimp, or is Red Sox reliever Rich Garces warming up in the bullpen? Somebody should warn him about heatstroke, and this.

Top of the eleventh, tie score, bases loaded, two outs, Doug Mirabelli batting for the Sox: OK, baseball is supposed to be timeless, but this is more like a time-warp. Tap it back to the pitcher, Doug, great job.

And finally, bases loaded in the bottom of the eleventh with one out for Robin Ventura of the Yanks. Just a ground ball to second, but enough to score Soriano, so it's the Ventura Highway for the Sox. Don't turn down the sound if you're watching at home or you'll miss "I want to be a part of it....". Another great day of Yankee baseball, showing Friday's result was just a fluke.
