Blue Jays 14, Yankees 8 …
With this loss, the New York Yankees split a four-game series against the Blue Jays in Toronto. But, this was a very successful road trip as the Bronx Bombers (87-50), won five of seven games to remain in first place in the AL East, seven and a half games ahead of the second place Boston Red Sox (79-57).
The Yankees return home to play a Labor Day day/night doubleheader against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium in the Beautiful Bronx.
The big story, of course, is Derek Jeter’s pursuit of Lou Gehrig’s all-time Yankees hit record.
The “Captain” Jeter is four hits away from passing the Yankees first “Captain”, the Iron Horse, Lou Gehrig on the all-time New York Yankees hit list.
Gehrig has 2,721 career hits; and, Jeter with three hits in yesterday’s loss to the Blue Jays, now stands at a total of 2,718 hits.
“Best Wishes” and “Thanks” to Derek for his many great years in Yankee Pinstripes.
And, Best Wishes to all who have visited my blog …
I hope everybody has a very enjoyable Labor Day holiday weekend !!!
