Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Take that, Red Sox!

Five home runs against Josh Beckett (Derek Jeter, Hideki Matsui had 2, Robinson Cano, and Alex Rodriguez). The New York Yankees took the rubber match of their three game series at Fenway 8-4. The win meant a lot more.

CC Sabathia, became the first pitcher in MLB this season to get 15 wins (15-7). They now won 10 of 11 series after the All-Star break. They have the best record in baseball at (78-46) and are 7 1/2 games ahead of the Red Sox for the AL East title.

Derek Jeter led off the game with homer when he sent Beckett's first pitch to the stands. The Elias Sports Bureau says that he is now tied with Alfonso Soriano with 21 on NY's all-time lead-off list. Rickey Henderson remains tops with 24.

Now they go home back to the Empire State for their own homestand.
