Jeter played short for only the fourth time in 12 games since aggravating the bone bruise on his ankle.  While the injury hasn’t noticeably...

Yankees rookies dress as 'Star Wars' characters

The New York Yankees rookies prepared for the final road trip of the season by dressing up as some of the best-known characters from the "Star Wars" films after Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Oakland A's. This year's hazing of first year players may be a tongue-in-cheek attempt at humor because the team is universally known as "The Evil Empire." Last year...

Brett Gardner Injury: Yankees Activate OF for Stretch Run

Brett Gardner has only played nine games this season. His injury was a big reason why the New York Yankees went out and acquired Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners. The team thought that Gardner would be out for the entire season with his elbow issues, but New York activated him today. According to Jack Moore of CBS Sports, Brett Gardner will be available in tonight's...

A's halt Yankees' seven-game winning streak

NEW YORK -- The ball soared off Alex Rodriguez's bat in the bottom of the ninth, flying deeper and deeper to right field, threatening to tie the game for the New York Yankees. As the Oakland A's tracked the ball's flight, the memories of the past two games could easily have flown through their heads. Two nights before, Russell Martin sent the Yankees home with a game...

T Minus 9: Yanks Win, O's Split

I had just one small request yesterday for the Toronto Blue Jays: That they take one game in their doubleheader against the Orioles. Request granted. Had they not done that, and had the Yankees lost last night, the Orioles would be in sole possession of first place this morning. But the Yankees lead by 1.5 games, so all  is well in Yankees Universe right now.Right now. Things could...

A's 5, Yankees 4

NEW YORK -- After watching the New York Yankees' four-run rally in the 13th inning lead to an epic loss in the 14th on Saturday, the Oakland A's struck back after New York's latest comeback Sunday. No. 9 hitter Cliff Pennington had three hits, including a home run and three RBIs, and he drove in the eventual game-winning run as the A's eked out a 5-4 win at Yankee...

Key pitching move backfires on Girardi

The numbers backed up Joe Girardi's decision to bring in Boone Logan to face Denard Span with the bases loaded and two out in the seventh inning Tuesday night. Logan's performance, however, opened up the New York Yankees manager to plenty of second-guessing. Logan entered the game with the Yankees leading the Twins by two runs after Phil Hughes had held Minnesota to one...

Twins 5, Yankees 4

MINNEAPOLIS - The nights are definitely getting cooler. But the race for the AL East title isn't cooling off at all. The New York Yankees remained 1 1/2 games up on Baltimore on Tuesday, failing to take advantage of an Orioles loss by falling 5-4 to the Minnesota Twins. The Twins, who are seemingly enjoying the spoiler role, rallied from a 3-1 hole with a big seventh inning...
