Yankees Pummel Tigers 9-3

The New York Yankees have cut Boston's lead in the American League East to just four games, after beating up on the Detroit Tigers 9-3 on Sunday. The Yankees sport the best record in the American League since the All-Star break going an incredible 27-11 during that period and have won 15 out of their last 20 games. New York starter Chien-Ming Wang saw his record go to 14-6 with the win. New York got huge days out of Hideki Matsui with three RBI, and Wilson Betemit who started in place of shortstop Derek Jeter who got a day off took advantage of the playing time and got four RBI. The game was tied at 3-3 in the sixth when Johnny Damon took Tigers starter Jeremy Bonderman deep for a solo blast to break the tie. Bonderman falls to 0-5 in his last 5 starts and Detroit remains a game and a half behind Cleveland in the race for the top of the American League Central.
