Scary Moment in Yanks Loss

On the second play of the game, Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui fractured his wrist on a diving play. He had to be escorted off the field. He has been scheduled for surgery on Friday and will be out indefinently. This ends his record playing streak at 518 to start his career, but that is the least of his wories. Bernie Williams became his replacement.
Shawn Chacon took the mound against the Red Sox and pitched sub-par game, however qualified for his fifth quality start in a row even after letting the bases load a couple times. He ran into trouble in the fifth by loading the bases, Scott Proctor came in and got out of the jam with out any damage.
Derek Jeter made a beautiful stop and threw the ball a little wild to Miguel Cairo whos snow-cone catch pulled him off the bag; his attempt to tag the lead runner failed as the ball got loose and two Sox runners came in to score to make it a one-run lead for the Sox.
Mariano River took over in the ninth and his Red Sox woes continued as he allowed a run to make it a two-run climb that the Yankees need.
But alas, no.
Fucking Sox.

Final Score:
Yankees 3, Red Sox 5

Up Next:
Athletic's @ Yankees
Chein-Ming Wang (2-1, 4.83 ERA) vs. Barry Zito (2-2, 4.07 ERA Yankees won 15-3 on Opening Day with Zito on the mound)

Player of the Game:
Ken Griffey Jr. of the Cincinnati Reds (I know, it's not a Yankee), made a diving catch in the outfield a day after bing called off the disabled list and in the bottom of the 11th inning, down 5-2, hit a game-winning, walk-off three-run home run to win the game.
Griffey may also be in the Yankees trade rumors this summer....hmmm...more hitting, or some needed pitching....hmmm....Zito will be on the block...hmmm....make the right move Cashman...
