AL East race
The Yankees aren’t going to win the AL East this week, but they sure can send a message to all potential challengers.
The Boston Red Sox increased their divisional lead Saturday to 1.5 games while the New York Yankees were rained out in Baltimore by Hurricane Irene.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi would have liked the final weekend of the regular season to go smoothly. A rainout at Fenway Park washed those hopes away.
