Boston loses fifth game in a row, clinches playoff spot

I know this is a Yankee blog, but Boston clinching a spot in October despite losing five in a row is pretty damn amusing. To think for a brief moment in August I actually thought the Rangers might pull a Wild Card berth out.

Far more importantly, the Yankees beat the Royals 4-3 in the 9th inning of last night’s contest, recording their Major League-leading 15th walkoff win of the year, this time on a Juan Miranda single off old friend Kyle Farnsworth. Good to see that ol’ Farnsy hasn’t changed much since his time in pinstripes.

The Yankees are an awesome 102-56, and will try to get to 103 wins for the first time since 2003 tonight against the Royals at the last home game of the season. They’ll also be looking for a record-setting 58th win at home in the first year of a new ballpark. I’ll be in attendance, and looking for my sixth straight win after starting the year off at new Yankee Stadium 0-4.

    I can't believe I left last night's game after the 8th inning! There was a feeling that they were going to win, I just didn't have the energy to hang out. Juan Miranda got a pie in the face before Jeter did…crazy…Love this team.

  2. Pretty crazy that this team has 15 walkoff wins this year and none of the game-winning hits have been delivered by Jeet.
