Yankees Blow Six Run Lead

In a stunning turn of events, the Yankees blew their largest lead of the season and a chance to record their sixth straight victory.
With a weakened line up, the Yankees have proven successful against the first place Tigers taking the first three games of the four game series. However, the last game proved difficult.
Yankees pounced on the Tigers taking an early 6-0 lead thanks to a Jorge Posada three-run double and a Jason Giambi home run. However, Chein-Ming Wang ran into a trouble and allowed five runs and was yanked after four and a third. The Yankees bullpen proved surprisingly well as they allowed no runs going into the ninth inning when they called on set up man Kyle Farnsworth.
Mariano Rivera was taken out of the pen due to back spasms while tying his shoes. Dee dee dee!
Farnsworth was expected to close out the game and the sweep, but allowed the game to be tied, and let Carlos Guillen get away with the game-winning hit.
Yankees dropped to second in the East since the Boston Red Sox had an off-day.

Final Score:
Yankees 6, Tigers 7

Up Next:
Yankees @ Orioles 7:03 EST
Jaret Wright (3-3, 4.30 ERA) vs. Kris Benson (6-4, 4.80 ERA)

Red Sox Update:
Sox had an off day, due to a Yankees loss, claim sole possession of first on the AL East.

    Good to see you fighting the good fight for sports related bloggers everywhere. Blog Explosion has little use for guys like us unless we have some sort of neurosis,cheating wives or talking pets. Have to say I'm a charter member of the Red Sox Nation having grown up in Bahston and am now annoying my various doormen here in NYC with my Sox updates. Hang in there and good luck, you'll need it with all the injuries.
