There is a bright spot in Scranton at least

Phil Hughes dominated Pawtucket today in Scranton’s 2-0 win. His line: 8 innings, 4 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 11 strikeouts. Hughes threw 75 of his 94 pitches for strikes.

Scranton scored two runs in the 10th to win it. Shelley Duncan belted a two-run walk-off homer. I hope Shelley didn’t hurt anybody. Good for those guys.

Scranton advanced to the International League championship series.


As for the Yankees, they are now in fourth place. The next three series are against first-place teams, the Angels, Rays and White Sox.

Here’s Joe Girardi’s postgame press conference:

As for me, I’m off to Orange County and the next leg of the road trip. The journey across America continues. Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Tom Brady is out for the season. Hopefully they’ll sign Chris Simms and press on. It’s a terrible blow, but I can’t quit watching football on Sept. 7.

Thanks for reading this weekend. I’ll try and keep the blog interesting through the end of the season.
