A long game and lost ground

The Yankees have had their share of walk-off wins this season. They certainly had chances tonight. But 18 batters came to the plate in the final five innings and only three got on base.

Take away the ninth inning and the Yankees had six hits over 13 innings. Their offense has been carrying them lately and it wasn’t there tonight.

UPDATE, 12:34 p.m.: Just heard that Clemens is being pushed back because of a leg issue and that Hughes will start on Saturday.

Here’s an update on the races:

AL East
Boston 91-63
Yanks 88-65 -2.5

Wild card
Yanks 88-65
Tigers 84-70 – 4.5

Games on Saturday
Blue Jays (Marcum) at Yankees (Hughes), 1:05
Royals (Davies) at Tigers (Rogers), 7:05
Red Sox (Matsuzaka) at Devil Rays (Sonnanstine), 7:10

I’ll be at the Stadium tomorrow. Lots of blogging all day.
