Yankees vs Athletic's 2

The Yankees were seeking more runs last night against the A's. As we all know, the Yankees pounded the A's with 15 runs including a seven run second inning capped off with an A-Rod grand slam for the season opener.
Last night was different however. The Yankees held on to a slim 3-2 lead until Eric Chavez hit a solo shot down the right field line to tie the game. The Yankees had a chance to score after Damon hit a towering double off the outfield fence only to see Jeter, Sheffield, and Rodriguez go down on outs. The game winning hit was a fly ball that flew over the leaping Matsui in right and the runner on second made it home easily. The Yankees suffered their first loss and fall to 1-1. Mike Mussina pitched a pretty good game only allowing three runs, two of them solo home runs, and left the game tied at three. Proctor came in, pitched awesome until theninth when all fell apart.
2005 Rookie of the Year Houston Street picked up the win for the A's, th eloss was charged to Scott Proctor.
Good news however, our rival Red Sox fell to the Rangers 10-4 and starter Tim Wakefield was taken out in the second after allowing seven runs on as many hits.
