Another dramatic night comes to a close

Good thing A-Rod homered when he did, it is pouring a Fenway Park.

Andy Pettitte had back spasms. He says he will make his next start (Friday against the Pirates) and that the injury isn’t serious. We’ll see what happens when he throws in the bullpen.

Jonathan Papelbon threw a great pitch to A-Rod, a 95-mph heater low and away. “(Rodriguez) has that ability to hit that ball out like only maybe Manny, Vladdy, a couple of hitters,” Boston manager Terry Francona said.

Bobby Abreu, once a goat, made a huge play in the eighth. “Game-changing play,” Francona said.

Joe Torre on Cano’s triple: “He killed that ball. The killed the ball into the wind.”

As I was leaving the clubhouse to make deadline, I went to Cano and asked him if he could hit a ball any harder. “You kidding me?” he said, eyes wide. “No way.”

Boston’s PR staff does a great job on the postgame notes they give us. Among the tidbits: A-Rod is hitting 7 of 15 with four homers and 11 RBI in the ninth inning this season. … The Yankees had lost 10 straight games decided by three or less runs before tonight.

Finally, here is some Alex Rodriguez audio:

I have a flight to Chicago in six hours. I’ll be back blogging sometime tomorrow afternoon. Not sure when.
