The New York Yankees look to put another nail in the coffin of the Boston Red Sox 2006 season when they host their AL East rivals Sunday, September 17 at 8:00 p.m. (ET)/ 5:00 p.m. (PT) on Rogers Sportsnet and Sportsnet HD.
New York get little as they travel to Toronto to take on the Jays Monday, September 18 at 7:00 p.m. (ET)/ 4:00 p.m. (PT) on Sportsnet and Sportsnet HD.
The Bronx Bombers applied a stranglehold on the AL East lead when they went into Fenway in mid-August and swept a five-game series. Since that series New York has posted a respectable 12-8 record while the Red Sox season continued to unravel with just eight wins in their last 21 games.
The play of both clubs over the last month has led to a 10½ game Yankee lead over the Red Sox for first place in the AL East.
