Pounding the Yankees, Keeping the Tigers at BayAfter my workout at Courts Plus this evening, I grabbed a spot in the cafe near the television. The Chicago White Sox/New York Yankees game was on the television. The Cubs/Brewers game was nowhere to be found. At the time, the score was tied 2-2. When I was on the rowing machine, Paul Konerko hit a solo home run to tie the game. During the bottom of the fifth inning, Kevin Youkilis stepped to the plate with the bases loaded. Of course he drilled the ball for a grand slam. The Sox jumped to a 6-2 lead. They would hold on to secure a 7-3 win over the American League East leaders.
The Sox needed a win this evening since the Detroit Tigers beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-3. The final seven games between the Sox and Tigers are really shaping up nicely. Again, the division title could come down to those games.
