Days After Stadium Lights Burn Out, So Does Hope For '08 Playoffs

Posted by Mark McCray |

The New York Yankees will miss the postseason for the first time since starting their run in 1995.

Mike Mussina pitched five shutout innings to earn his 19th win, Jason Giambi homered and the Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Tuesday night, but it wasn't enough to keep the Yankees slim postseason hopes alive as Boston beat Cleveland just minutes before the conclusion of the Yankees victory.

The Red Sox win clinched at least the AL wild-card and eliminated the Yankees from postseason contention.
