News here from Yankee Stadium as the Yankees take the batters box for the bottom of the 10th in a 6-6 game. Jorge Posada suffered a sprained ring finger in his left hand, and is day to day.

Posada was 1-2 with a walk and a run scored in this afternoon's game before Fransisco Cervelli pinch hit for him in the seventh. With Cervelli behind the plate in the bottom of the ninth, Mariano Rivera blew a save attempt with a 6-5 lead.
