August 18th @ The Red Sox - Game 1

Nothing like a four-hour, 9-inning game - when you win.

The Yankees hitters did what they should do in this game. The faced very weak pitching and put a 12-spot on the board. The Yankees one-through-five batters were outstanding today. And, Wang kept it together just long enough as to not burn the pen.

As great as this game was, to a Yankees fan, I can't help but wonder if tonight will be Boston's turn to score 12 runs when they face Ponson. I hope Torre takes Ponson out of the game the minute he allows his 4th run - no matter what the inning. It would be nice to keep the team in the game and go for the sweep.

Wang was an abosalute gamer in this one too, he came up pretty big IMHO...defense and luck helped, but Wang battled all the way helped a ton
