Celebration On Hold..Sox Choke-Yanks Win With Reserves

Magic number remains at 2 and the champagne back in the fridge.
The Red Sox had the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth with 1 out . Minnesota closer Joe Nathan whiffed Jason Varitek and a pinch hitting Kevin Youkilis for the 5-4 win.
In Tampa-the Yankees rested Derek Jeter,Jorge Posada,ARod and Bobby Abreu and still managed to beat the Devil Rays.
This was a night where the Yanks were giving the Sox the AL East title.
Now instead the Yanks are 2 games back.
Should the Red Sox lose and Yanks beat Baltimore Fri the Yankees will be 1 game back going into Sat.
It is conceivable the AL East champion could be crowned in either Fenway or Baltimore on Sun.
