Yankees blame the midges for lose

The Indians went win less against the Yankees in the regular season. Now in the post season they have won two games to take a 2-0 lead. The Indians blew out the Yankees 12-3 in the first game on Thursday. The Yankees will have to win three in a row to stay in the hunt. The midges that swarm off the lake in the fall destroyed the Yankee picture in the 8th inning and he threw two wild pitches that allowed the game to be tied 1-1. The Indians won it 2-1 in the 11th inning.

Manny Ramirez (a former Cleveland star) won the game for Boston and they took a 2-0 lead in their series. It looks like Cleveland verses Boston for the American League championship. They were the team with the best record.

Yahoo has a great article on the midges attacking the Yankees. Here is the start.
(CLEVELAND – Even before Gen. Moses Cleveland arrived here in 1796 and first surveyed what would become a delirious baseball town on the shores of Lake Erie, residents occasionally had to deal with swarms of gnat-like insects called midges, which descend in vicious waves from Canada and overwhelm just about any warm body.

Friday, in an eighth inning of a game where the Cleveland Indians couldn't swat a fly if it meant pushing a run across the plate, the midges arrived unannounced and landed, seemingly all at once, on Joba Chamberlain's neck. )

Here is the link to the complete article.
