Tuesday September 29th - Day In Review

Yankees - beat KC Royals 4 to 3.  Scored 2 in the 9th off Kyle Farnsworth.  Walk off RBI by Juan Miranda whoever he is.  The Yankees won their 102nd game.
Red Sox - lost to Blue Jays 8 to 7.  Bucholz got beat up for 7 runs in 5 innings.  Wagner had a scoreless inning.
For the Jays, Adam Lind hit 3 home runs and now has 35.  Aaron Hill hit his 36th. (WOW!)
Tigers and Twins - split a double header.  The Twins won game one 3 to 2 in ten innings which pulled them to within a game of the tigers for the division lead. Brandon Lyons yielded 2 runs, 2 hits, 2 walks and 2 wild pitches in the 10th.  In game two, the Tigers held off the Twins 6 to 5.  The Tigers had led 5 to 0 and had to hold on dearly.  Justin Verlander earned his 18th win against 9 losses.
Braves - lost a critical game to the Marlins 5 to 4.  Matt Diaz's 3 run HR which tied the game in the 6th was not enough as the Marlins scored the winning run off Kenshin Kawakami in the 7th inning.  The Braves are now 2.5 games behind the Rockies.  The Rockies lead the Brewers 5 to 2 in the 8th inning.  If they hold on the lead will be up to 3 games for the wild card with just 4 games to play.
Phillies - beat the Astros 7 to 4.  J.A. Happ won his 12th game of the season and Jason Werth hit his 35th home run.  Brad Lidge did not give up a run, though he didn't pitch.
I almost forgot the METS.  They lost another one - 4 to 3 to the Nationals.  Tonight the Mets were truly amazing.  In the first inning and the eighth inning, the Mets loaded the bases with no out and didn't score.  The National scored the winning run on 2 separate errors on two very routine infield plays. Then in the 9th with 2 outs and Pagan on first base, David Wright slammed a line drive to right field that Elijah Dukes made a lunging, jumping catch at the wall.  The Mets hit a lot of line drives tonight that went into fielders gloves.

The playoffs start next Tuesday.
