Eleven and Counting....
Well, Chien-Ming Wang won his 11th game of the season to match Mike Mussina for the club lead in that department. However, Wang's victory was indebted to his offense and bullpen for coming from behind and then holding on to the lead to pull out the victory. Wang lasted 6 innings, giving up 10 hits, 4 runs - all earned, with 1 K and 1 walk; he didn't have his best stuff tonight. He was actually outpitched by Blue Jay starter Ted Lilly who also went 6 innings, but only gave up 4 hits, 3 runs, with 8 K's and 2 walks. After the 6th inning, Wang's night was over and he left the game with his team in a 4-3 deficit. In the top of the 7th, the Yankees offense came to life against the Toronto relievers, and scored 2 runs. The Yank's relievers then did a magnificent job of holding the lead for Wang to secure his eleventh win. Box/Wrap
