Handing the White Sox their fifth straight loss while winning their sixth in a row, the New York Yankees jumped all over Chicago early and cruised to a ridiculous 18-7 win.
|Granderson: 5 RBI|
|Jeter passes Brock|
Jeter passed Lou Brock for 23rd place in hits all-time. Jeter's five hits gives him 3027. Brock retired in 1979 with 3023 career hits.
The diminutive Granderson is keeping pace in the RBI department with teammate Mark Teixeira, who had three RBI himself and leads the team with 85 ribbies to Granderson's 84.
While the Yanks continue to press the issue in the AL East, it has not been easy, as the Red Sox have won four of their last five, including two straight against Cleveland, and continue to hold a one game lead in the division over New York.
Following the completion of their series with the White Sox and Indians, the Yankees and Red Sox meet up for a three-game set in Boston, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which could go a long way toward determining the AL East representative in the playoffs.
The Milwaukee Brewers are going to be heard from come the post-season.
|Bouncing back from an 8-7, 11-inning loss to the second place Cardinals on Tuesday, Milwaukee rocked St. Louis 10-5, taking two out of three in the mid-week series and extending their NL Central lead to 3 1/2 games.|
|McGehee: 3 Bombs|
Perhaps in an effort to make up for lost time, the Milwaukee third baseman belted three homers and drove in four runs, driving the Brewers to the easy win.
