ALCS 7.5

The Yankees got a run on a stupid hit batter, a steal, and then a Jeter single. Miguel Cairo is such a bastard. On ANY other team he wouldn't even be starting, but since he's stuck in this cushy lineup he hits clutch doubles out of nowhere. With his gap tooth and middle-school necklace. He dives over the plate like nobody I've ever seen, and he's not even a power hitter.

Lowe got out of the inning, but the Stadium crowd is back in the game with the lead down to 5. The bullpen started warming up. We'll see how long Francona leaves Lowe in now. Short leash. Short leash.

Vasquez is now in some kind of groove. I'd like them to upset that here.
