On September 12, 2012 — The Yankees remain tied with the Orioles in the AL East with a 5 – 4 win over Boston. SS Derek Jeter has to leave the game in the 8th inning with a strained hamstring, although the injury does not appear to be serious. An inning earlier, Boston’s Dustin Pedroia also exited the game, but for a different reason: his wife Kelli, who is attending the game at Fenway Park, goes into labor to deliver the couple’s second child.
