And the Yankees find themselves in a must win situation. Down three games to two, the Marlins are one win away from being crowned world champions.
The Yankees got off to a rough start last night when David Wells came out after an inning with back spasms. Forced to go deep into his bullpen, the only consolation is that Joe Torre’s team gets a day off to rest.
As usual, the Yankees made things interesting in the ninth, by getting two runs and cutting the lead to 6-4. They just didn’t have enough gas to get through one though.
Only two games are left, and only one might be played. It’s always sad to see baseball go.
