The Yankees magic number to win the AL East!!
Saturday, September 22, 2012
Brett Gardner started a hitting program a few days ago and has been running the bases and taking fly balls in hopes of coming back this season in some sort of role. The Yankees have said that they were willing to bring him back in a defensive replacement and pinch running type of role. Joe Girardi has confirmed that this will happen sometime this season but the Yankees have not made up their mind on just when that will happen.
The Yankees will need to make a 40 man roster move to get Gardner back with the big league club so expect a DFA for Derek Lowe in my opinion. Either way Gardner is coming back and I cannot say I agree with the decision.
Ichiro stays hot with a home run 2-1 A's
Robinson Cano rbi singles ties it up 2-2
Andruw Jones walks with bases loaded to put Yankees up 3-2
A Rod scores on a wild pitch after an error allows Cano tor each 4-2 Yankees
Raul Ibanez home run puts the Yankees up 5-4
Jeter extends his hitting streak to 16 games
What a crazy win for the Yankees 10-9
The Yankees are riding high on a 6 game winning streak and just 14 hours since their walk off win last night. These same two teams will go at it again this afternoon as the Yankees send Ivan Nova to the mound. Facing him will be Travis Blackley. This game will be televised at 1:05 pm ET on YES.
