|Nelson Cruz makes a poor sliding decison.|
Cruz slid to the inside of the plate, not to the outside. Had he executed what Twins fans of a certain age will always think of as the Randy Bush slide -- sliding far to the outside and reaching out with the fingers to touch the plate -- there's no way Captain Cheeseburger can make the tag. Even with the bad slide, Sabathia barely got there in time.
Postscript: That run Cruz didn't score mattered. The Yankees win 6-5.
