With Ace Chien Ming Wang on the mound, the Yankees always have a chance. He keeps the other team down, and yesterday, he didn't disappoint. Wang turned in 6 strong innings, allowing just 1 run and striking out 5. He then turned over the pitching to the pen, and they came through admuirably as Farnsworth and Joba held the Mariners down until Mo came on in the ninth to nail it down in a non-save situation.
The offense, again, was anemic. They managed to bunch up their 6 singles and 1 (one, uno) double to push across 3 runs (1 earned) against a very good pitcher. 4 Seattle errors should have spelled disaster, but the offense couldn't capitalize on all the free passes. The one bright note was in the 8th, they managed to push across 2 more runs. This is the first time in a few games that the Yankees padded a lead.
In today's game (1:05 on YES) Moose (3-3) takes the mound aginst Hernandez (2-1) at the big ball orchard in the South Bronx.
