Panic? New York better panic -- they have only 49 games to play.
Our magic number is 45.
Tim Wakefield (4.55, 99 ERA+) / Joe Saunders (3.10, 138 ERA+)
Saunders continued his high-caliber work in dispatching the A's across 6.2 innings, holding them to two earned runs on six hits while striking out three and walking two. A strike-thrower who keeps his defense involved, Saunders also keeps his team in games. The Angels are 7-0 in his starts since he opened the season with a 4-3 loss to Oakland. He has faced Boston once for a no-decision, going 5.2 innings on August 22, 2006, giving up two unearned runs in a game won by the Angels in Anaheim.The Yankees (Fat Billy) play in Toronto (Josh Towers) tonight.
The MFY trail the Red Sox by 6 games in the East and are only .5 GB Detroit in the wild card hunt (Seattle is 1 GB).
