Yankees 6, Orioles 4 (10)

Sure, Swisher's homer, but what won the game was Girardi's decision late to walk Markakis and have Soriano pitch to the right-hander. Bases loaded: one walk, one passed ball, one wild pitch, one infield hit and the game was over. Soriano came through like a champ. Strikeout. Just enough to keep the game alive for Swisher's heroics.


And, as an added bonus, since last September 4th, when the Red Sox took the field with a nine-game lead over Toronto for the Wild Card, Boston is 6-23.

That has to rank up there as one of the stranger games with twists and turns and drama. CC struggled but persevered; Giradi makes the right moves although some were unorthodox; Soriano belies his 2011 image and is clutch; ARod looks lost at the plate while "Jetah" is playing like a 31 year old.
