Derek Jeter had two hits, Godziller collected 3 RBI, and the Yanks beat the O's again, this time by the score of 6-3. The Yankees' number for clincing the division is down to seven games.
In Boston, Pedro Martinez pitched a complete game, and the Sox edged the D Rays, 3-2. The Red Sox are now 2 1/2 games ahead of the Mariners, who lost to Texas. Alex Rodriguez smacked his 44th home run of the year; Rob Neyer thinks it's time for us to stop worrying and love the bomb---give the man the MVP already. Here, here.
