Big Win vs. Archrival....
The NY Yankees behind a potent offense and Chien-Ming Wang's stellar performance, picked up a game on the Division leading Boston Red Sox. Although Wang didn't have his best stuff tonight, he flashed an improving slider in his repertoire to complement his sinker and changeup. Wang had a season-high 5 K's in his 6.1 innings, and gave up 2 runs on 7 hits. Wang managed to work his way out of trouble in a few of the innings and was consistently in the low 90's with his fastball all game - 91 to 92 in the 7th inning. With the win, Wang earned his third career victory against the Sox (versus 4 career defeats) and evened his record at 3-3 on the season. The Yanks took game 1 of the series 6-2. Recap/Box
