Wang Dominate, Rivera Not

Chein-Ming Wang has earned some more of my respect last night as he dominated the Devil Rays allowing two runs through seven innings pitched.
Yankees offense had some great moments, and some horrible moments. Johnny Damon stole three bases, Jason Giambi drew four walks, and Gary Sheffield hit a home run.
Sheff's home run came in the sixth to tie the game at two, giving him 453 for his career.
Tampa starter Seth McClung threw a game that many teams would have normally taken advantage of, he gave up a team record 14 walks, and with an ERA higher than 10, why didn't the Yankees do anything. It's because of the weak hitting with runners in scoring position.
Yankees stranded 16 runners, a hard kick in the ass.
Mariano Rivera took the mound in the ninth and pitched well, until the 10th, where he lost it. He allowed a hit, stolen base, a walk, a double, and a sac fly and took the loss. Rivera usually has trouble against Boston, but if you are starting to have trouble against Tampa, maybe you need a little more work.

Final Score:
Yankees 2, Devil Rays 4 (10 innings)

Player of the Game:
Chein-Ming Wang pitched seven innings, struck out three and allowed two runs.

Up Next:
Devil Rays @ Yankees
Shawn Chacon (2-1, 5.59 ERA) vs. Mark Hendrickson (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

Red Sox Update:
Sox lose to the Indians 7-1

Barry Roids:
Bonds hit his 711th home run to tie the game in the ninth.

I have, and always will be, a true Yankees fan. Don't give me that bandwagon crap; bandwagon fans are for people who need to belong.
