10:03: After getting a break on the 1-2 pitch, A-Rod clubs the next one high into the LF seats, 3-run bomb gives yankees a 4-3 lead

10:00: Tex delights the crowd by popping out to third and it's up to A-Rod

10:00: Markakis may have misread Granderson's liner to right, which falls in for a single. The most hated man in Baltimore, Teixeira, up as the go-ahead run at the plate

9:55: Posada works the count to 3-2, then leads off the ninth with a line single to left

7:08: kevin Millwood's first pitch is a strike to Jeter, who gets booed by the crowd here at Camden

Pre-game clubhouse chatter: Brett Gardner took some early BP and proclaimed himself fit to return to the lineup after missing four games with a sore right thumb. Nick Swisher, however, is still not recovered from his knee bruise and is available only as a pinch-hitter
