Yankees 9, Orioles 6
by SG

Good times in Camden Yards, as the Yankees used a six run seventh to turn a 5-2 deficit into a 8-5 lead. Randy Johnson picked up his 17th win of the season, despite allowing five runs in six innings. Johnson seemed to be cruising over the first four innings, but he lost it in fifth. Jeff Karstens began throwing in the fourth which makes me think maybe something was bothering RJ, but he managed to get through two more innings anyway.

The magic number is down to 10. If the Yankees go 5-15 over their last 20 games, Boston would have to go 15-4 just to tie them. Thankfully, Boston has the guy who thinks he should be the MVP to lead them in their quest. Mariano Rivera is still not close to being ready, with his next throw day scheduled for Wednesday. I'm officially starting to get a tiny bit worried.

The Yankees come home for three games with Tampa. Jason Giambi and Hideki Matsui may both be back in the lineup tonight. I'd love to see the Yankees clinch against Boston, but they probably have to sweep Tampa to be in position to do that.
