The Yanks have jumped out to a 3-0 lead on two, two-out singles by Melky and Damon. The Mariners lost to the Angels, so if the Yanks win, they pull into a tie for the Wild Card lead.
If you aren't watching the game, turn it on and check out Josh Beckett's facial hair. I have no idea how to describe it other than disgraceful.UPDATE (mid 4th)
No-no for Clemens through 4. UPDATE (top 5)
Detroit is getting torn apart by K.C. 5-0 in the top of the first.UPDATE (mid 5)
No-no through 5. Michael Kay just said so.UPDATE (mid 5)
I found a picture of the hair, it's like a goatee, but only under his chin. Jesus, they're showing all the "stars" in the crowd.
UPDATE (mid 6)
I guess he should've hit Ortiz. Solo bomb, 3-1 Yanks. Here's a troubling stat. Against the Yanks, Ortiz has 24 career home runs, and has been hit by 0 pitches. You'd think someone would've hit him by accident by this point in 100 games.UPDATE (end 6)
Beckett wiggles out of a bases-loaded jam. Still 3-1.UPDATE (bot 7)
A-Bomb. 4-1, Yanks. What the hell is Beckett still doing in there?UPDATE (top 8)
