Alex Rodriguez just hit an automatic double to deep left-center with men on first and second to tie the game at 6-6. The Twins (for the moment) are still alive because the ball bounced over the fence after bouncing on the warning track. Otherwise, Jeter would surely have scored from first.
The odd thing is the same thing happened earlier in the game but to the Twins in the eighth. Had Koskie's drive down the left field line not bounced over the fence, Hunter would have scored easily from first, and the Twins would have won 6-5.
If the Twins lose, Ron Gardenhire will be double-guessed for leaving closer Joe Nathan in for his third inning of work.
Woah, after loading the bases and walking the bases loaded, the Twins just gave up a line drive by Hideki Matsui to straight-away right that allowed (who else?) Derek Jeter score from third.
The Yankees win. The Yankees win, 7-6 in twelve. I guess that's why people hate 'em.
