New York 2, Boston 1. David Pauley was making only his 2nd big league start and held his own in Yankee Stadium. He worked into the 7th having allowed only a solo home run to Bernie Williams in the 5th. He left with the bases loaded in the 7th with 2 outs and Rudy Seanez came in and promptly walked Jason Giambi to force in the tying run. David Ortiz hit his 17th home run. The Spankees now have a 1.5 game lead and lower their magic number to 105.
Toronto 6, Baltimore 4. One day after getting shut out, the Jays finally got their offense delivered from Toronto, and remained 3 games behind the Evil Empire. The O’s are now 9 back as you can start to see the wheels come loose.
