State College def. Williamsport 12-6
Hudson Valley def. Brooklyn 4-2

Everything fell into place perfectly for the Yankees last night as Williamsport lost along with the Brooklyn Cyclones. Not even Carlos Beltran could stop the Cyclones from keeping first place out of the hands of the Staten Island Yankees. The Yankees took first place on a go ahead base hit by Kyle Higashioka in the bottom of the tenth inning. Not only did the Yankees take first place last night but they also clinched a spot in the 2009 New York Penn League Playoffs with their 12th consecutive win.

The New York Yankees Magic Number is now 23. For all information on the Yankees and their playoff run check out the 161st Street Blog for all up to date information.
