The End Is Near: Yankees Midweek Report

What’s happened:

The Yankees came off of a big series at home in taking two of three from playoff-
charging Oakland and won 6-3 in Minnesota on Monday thanks in part to six scoreless
innings from Andy Pettitte and a home run party which included #40 from Curtis
Granderson. The fun ended there, however, as the Yanks blew a Tuesday night lead
to the Twins when Joe Girardi yanked Phil Hughes for Boone Logan in the 7th inning.
Logan threw a wild pitch and gave up the lead on a Denard Span double and Joe Mauer
single as the Twins won 5-4. This was a crucial loss considering the Yanks got help in
Baltimore as the Jays blanked the O’s 4-0. The American League East race could have
been just about over.

What’s to come:

Just eight games remain. A day game in Minnesota, four in Toronto and three vs. Boston
at Yankee Stadium.

Highlight of the Week:

Andy Pettitte’s six-inning performance against the Twins gave him 11 total innings of
shutout baseball since his return. If he can keep this up, the Yanks’ rotation may turn out
to be a strength in the postseason, a postseason they still need to make, of course.
