Player of the day

Tampa Bay's Greg Norton, whose tenth inning homer beat gave Boston a taste of their own walk-off medicine and aided the Yanks in extending their lead in the AL East by two games. The Sox lost two of three to the Rays and might have been swept by Cleveland if not for the complete collapse of their young bullpen. Boston is on its way down and New York is on its way up. Norton's homer highlighted that.
