Martin+Prado+Chicago+White+Sox+v+New+York+aqN1O0JbG9Gl

Brett+Gardner+New+York+Yankees+v+Tampa+Bay+9tLn2BE_M-7l

Taking two out of three against the Tampa Bay Rays was a huge deal. It put the Yankees in a position to still be in the Wild Card hunt and they have a month and a half to compete before the regular season is over.
