Yankees pick up a half game

Just rolled into Yankee Stadium, where a few Red Sox — including Dustin Pedroia — are taking early batting practice. There’s a Yankee running along the warning track and I’m pretty sure it’s Andy Pettitte, but he’s pretty far away.

On my way here, the Yankees managed to pick up a half game in the standings because the Rays were nearly no-hit — again! — in a loss to the Blue Jays. Brandon Morrow made a 1-0 lead hold up while striking out 17. He was pitching to former Yankees catcher Jose Molina, and his strikeout total was the second-highest in Blue Jays history behind Roger Clemens’ 18-strikeout game in 1998.
