CBS today premiered the promo for next week's New York episode "The Closer".

In this episode, the team examines the murder of an avid Boston Red Sox fan found dead with a ruptured spleen following a tough loss against New York. Danny must put his baseball skills to the test to piece together the evidence as the CSIs try to find out how and why he was murdered. Meanwhile, after testifying in a murder trial, Mac is confronted by the defendant, Quinn Sullivan (guest star Michael Clark Duncan), who questions the validity of the evidence. Mac is torn between trusting science or his desire to help a man facing jail time who swears he's innocent. Also, when a barely clad woman is killed by a truck early one morning, the team investigates why she was running through the streets and from whom. "The Closer" was written by Pam Veasey and directed by Emilio Estevez.

The 30-second trailer for the episode is now available on the official CBS site. For those of you with slower connections, here's a transcript:
