No Decision...

Damn, Wang was cruising through the first 3 innings and was even spotted a 5 run lead, before the wheels fell off the train. Facing off against the Tigers, Wang went 4+ innings - demonstrating some control issues ( he walked 3 batters ), before being pulled by Torre. EPSN commentator, Orel Hershiser noted that Wang was having some difficulty with his mechanics, leading to his sinker flattening out. Wang was clocked between 92 to 94 mph on his fastball. His counterpart - Justin Verlander was throwing some serious cheese! The kid was clocked consistently at 98 mph and even hit 100 once!! Great fastball, poor command of his secondary pitches. Both starting pitchers received a no decision. A disappointing loss for the Yankees. Box/Recap

Kuo pitched 2/3 of an inning, facing 3 batters. He gave up a hit, a run, and had a K. Box

Hu has been flashing a hot bat lately. Hu was 3-5 at the plate tonight, with a double and 2 runs scored. Hu has been outstanding in the field as well. He committed only his 3rd error of the season tonight. Box

Chen managed to go 1-4 tonight. He picked up a RBI, scored a run, and also stole his 18th base of the season. Box

Lo took his second loss of the season. Despite striking out a season-high 7 batters in 7 innings, he also gave up 10 hits, 6 runs - all earned, and had 2 walks. Box

Keng also lost tonight, as he blew a save opportunity. Keng pitched the 8th and 9th innings, and was hit hard - giving up 6 hits and 4 runs - all earned. Keng did manage 3 K's. Box
