It was a rain out game in August that brought me to the Stadium to see the Yankee take the AL East title again. When the first large storm moved up the east coast in August all I was thinking about was my tickets to the Sunday Yankee game and were they going to play it, well they didn’t.
So I made it out to the makeup game, the night-end of a day-night double header. The Yankees won the front-end of the double header 4-2. We all knew that it was a long shot but if the Yankees won the night game and Boston lost, the Yankees would be AL East Champs.
So after a 1 hour rain delay, the game got started and we were all watching the Yankees on the field as well as the scoreboard. Before the Jorge Posada single to take the lead 4-2 in the bottom of the 8th, we had seen that Boston dropped another game in their massive slide. Then Soriano came to the mound in the top of the 9th and closed the game for the save.
Another post season for the Yankees and the chance to go for 28, the fall classic will have to pass thru Yankee Stadium.
