They sure don't look like a team that's been eliminated from playoff contention. The New York Yankees continued their recent winning ways, beating the Blue Jays 6-2 thanks to a Bobby Abreu grand slam in the top of the tenth inning.

Phil Hughes failed to earn his first win of the season, but was more concerned that the Yankees won;

"I really wanted to pitch well tonight," Hughes said. "A win would have been great, but we ended up winning the ball game, which is all that really matters. It would have been nice to get rid of that goose egg in my win column, but it is what it is. I'm just happy to pitch well."

The win is the Yankees seventh win in a row, something they hope will carry over into the 2009 season.

The famous saying goes, you can wish in one hand and crap in the other; see which one gets filled first. There is no bigger momentum killer than six month in between games, but in the meantime, Yankee fans can enjoy the rest of the season if they keep playing the way they have of late.
