A sad baseball night.
Friday, September 30, 2005
Both the Astros and the Yankees lost last night. Going into the 8th it was tied 1-1. The Cubs scored 1 and Berkman answered back for the Astros with a 2 run shot. I watched Lidge stroll in and went ahead and moved toward the entrance where I came in behind home and watched him pitch from there. I thought for sure it was over with Lidge in but he gave up 2 runs and the Astros fell 4-3.

As for the Yanks, I pretty much just got to see the scoreboard on the left field wall but between one of the innings I got up and found a TV showing a lot of the games and got to watch Wang load the bases and Boston go up 5-1 in that inning. Jeter hit a 2 run shot the next inning and no more runs scored and the Yanks lost 5-3.

Both teams only have 2 games left and for the NL - either the Astros or the Phillies are going to get the Wild Card spot. The Astros have a 1 game lead so if they win these last 2 games, they're in. The Yanks and Red Sox are tied for 1st in the AL East. If both teams win 1 of the remaining 2, the Yanks would win the East because they would have won the season series against Boston 10-9. Both teams right now are 1 game ahead of the Indians for the Wild Card spot so depending on what the Indians do against the White Sox, the Wild Card is either going to go to the loser of the Yanks - Red Sox or to the Indians. I can't remember a more down to the wire finish for any baseball season.
