YANKEES REACH TO AL EAST TITLE
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL
Time to bear and wait was over. New York Yankees won the 2nd of three game series against Boston Red Sox, 8-4, on 1st October when NY got an 8th consecutive AL East title.
It was easy for me to imagine that a road to a title was difficult for Yankees when I found that New York started season opener against last World Champ Boston. As I expected, Joe Toree's men had run after Terry Francona's side through the season, by nine games as maximum.
Unbelievable for Yankees. I would like to watch it including Hideki Matsui's roared fire more one month.

New York 8-4 Boston (1 Oct)
