Hong-Chih Kuo lowered his ERA to 8.10 after Thursday's game vs. the DBacks. It wasn't too long ago that he had an ERA of 81.0 after giving up Bond's HR. Kuo pitched the 7th inning and faced the 1-5 hitters for the DBacks. After giving up an initial double to Craig Counsell, Kuo got Chad Tracy to fly out, Gonzo to ground out - which advanced Counsell to third base. Kuo then intentionally walked Tony Clark, before getting out of the inning by K'ing Shawn Green on a 95 MPH heater. - Another solid performance for the Comeback Kid!!!!
Chien-Ming Wang will get the start this Sunday for the Yankees against the BlueJays. The decision was made by Torre as Aaron Small will be moved to the bullpen to make way for Mike Mussina's return to the starting rotation. - Quite a vote of confidence for the young hurler from Taiwan!!
