Yankees win 7-1. Nuts! The series record is 1-1, the M's coming away with a split in Yankee Stadium before returning to Safeco field for three games.
The Yanks were getting shut out until the 8th, then they scored big. They say even God believed in Yankee-style baseball. Genesis: "In the big inning..."
(That joke was old when Abner Doubleday was young.)
CNNSI: Steady Freddy. "'There's no secret: We got shut down,' said Paul O'Neill, who feebly went 0-for-3 and even got pinch hit for."
