Moose wins 17th

Mike Mussina won his 17th game of the season tonight, marking the eighth time he's achieved that feat in his career.

Mussina gave up 10 hits, but only allowed two runs to score and struck out eight over six innings. His season ERA now sits at a healthy 3.39.

The Yankees were able to score seven runs against Rays' pitching, including six against starter Matt Garza.

Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with a home run, the 548th of his career. That ties him with Mike Schmidt for 12th all-time.

It's a shame the Yankees have hit a good amount these last two games with the season, for all intents and purposes, over. Boston won again, lowering their magic number to clinch the wild-card despite the Yankees victory.

Joba Chamberlain and Dan Giese returned to action tonight. Chamberlain gave up a hit and walked a batter (no strikeouts) while Giese pitched a perfect ninth to end the game.

The true wonder of this game is Jeter and Nady let that high fly ball dropped between them and neither of them got an E.
BTW, can somebody in the Yankees coaching staffs slap the back of Cano's head and tell him to stop swinging so carelessly at balls out of the strike zone?
