At last, the Yankees’ winning streak is over. The team hadn’t lost since the Field of Dreams game in Iowa, but finally, they dropped a one-run game in Oakland. No matter; they’ll have every chance to start a new win streak. After completing the four-game set with the A’s today, the Yankees will play series with the Angels and Orioles next week. They’ll have a chance to keep the good times rolling, yesterday’s misstep notwithstanding.

On the site, John breaks down how the Yankees made their winning streak happen, Matt discusses the game in which Lou Gehrig got left hanging, Estevão runs through the American League playoff picture, and Joe spins through the Yankees social media. Meanwhile, Kevin takes a look at a peculiar artifact of the Yankees’ success: their dominance in eighth innings.
