UPDATE, 10:32 p.m.: Probably won’t be a ton of updates as I try to write for the paper’s first deadline, but wanted to give you guys a fresh thread for the final few innings. Yankees trying to close it out and draw level in the series.

UPDATE, 10:38 p.m.: I know we all love the Captain and everything, but that was among the silliest plays I’ve seen in a long while. Sometimes it just feels like Jeter refuses to acknowledge that he’s, you know, a really good hitter and pretty much shouldn’t be bunting in a big situation ever, let alone with two strikes. Just crazy.

UPDATE, 10:45 p.m.: That was very strange. It sure looked like Howard didn’t make the catch on Damon’s liner, but the umpire called it a catch and then Howard doubled off Cabrera at second base for a double play. After a huddle, the umps upheld the original call. To me, replays looked like it took a short-hop into Howard’s glove. Either way, Mo is on now for six outs.
