[an error occurred while processing this directive]London: Yorkshire edged closer to its first County Championship title for 33 years as it piled on the runs against Glamorgan in Scarborough on Thursday.Having bowled the Welsh county out for just 223, the home side then made 580 for nine declared in their first innings with centuries from Craig White (183), Matthew Wood (124) and captain David Byas (104).Then the Tykes' bowlers went to work and by the end of the third day, Glamorgan needing 357 to make the hosts bat again, was reduced to 142 for six by the close of play.Weather permitting, Yorkshire should wrap up the title on Friday when play resumes for the fourth and final day.Byas led from the front for Yorkshire. His 173-ball century contained one six and 12 fours, but he then watched in frustration as Glamorgan briefly threatened to ruin the party.Australian Test reject Darren Lehmann was called upon to use his rarely-employed left-arm spin and the move was immediately rewarded when Byas caught Keith Powell for 30 to break up some stubborn Glamorgan resistance.Second-placed Somerset's hopes of maintaining the pressure on the leaders was hit by rain delays at Taunton.Jimmy Cox hit 76 for the home side as it made steady progress to 207 for six against visitors and defending champions Surrey.
