Yankees update

After last night's series-finale win over the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, the Yankees, the American League wild-card leaders, have a 64-35 record after May 29, the best in the majors. They now have won eight of their past 10 games. Johnny Damon is 12-for-38 with two home runs and six RBIs in his past eight games. Alex Rodriguez, the likely AL Most Valuable Player, had seven home runs in a four-game span from Sept. 4 to Sept. 9, but has been held without one for six games. He was 0-for-4 last night. Shortstop Derek Jeter was 2-for-19 over his previous four games before going 2-for-4 with a home run both Saturday and last night. The Orioles are 8-4 this season against the Yankees. One more win in the teams' final six meetings will secure their first .500 or better record in a season against the Yankees since 1997.
