Yanks Win Again, Now Four Back of Boston

Wilson Betamit drove in four runs to help the Yankees defeat the Detroit Tigers yesterday 9-3, which was coupled with a Red Sox loss to the Angels, to bring the Yankees within four games of the top of the American League East Division. The Yankees are now 27-11 since the All-Star break and are the closest they’ve been to the Red Sox since April 24th.

The Yankees also kept pace with the Wild Card leading Seattle Mariners, who now have a half-game lead on the Bronx Bombers.

Chien-Ming Wang led a trio of young pitchers who shut down the Tigers yesterday. Wang pitched 6 innings, followed by Joba Chamberlain who struck out two in one inning of work, and finished by Edwar Ramirez, who pitched two perfect innings with three strikeouts for his first career save.

The Yankees flew out to California last night to begin a three-game series with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Monday, followed by a four-game series at Detroit before the biggest series of the year so far, a three-game set at home against Boston.
