Game 155: Escape with a winBy
There’s only a week left in the regular season, but the magic number to clinch the division still sits at seven. The Yankee control their own destiny but I don’t think anyone wants to see this thing go right down to the wire. Being able to rest some guys, particularly relievers, in that final series against the Red Sox would be nice. That’s why last night’s loss stung so much, it was a chance to inch closer to the division title and make life a little easier. The Yankees have a chance to atone for that loss this afternoon with their ace on the mound against a pitcher a) with a 5.9 BB/9 in nearly 80 innings this year, and b) starting on three days’ rest. Here’s the starting lineup…
