Once again, Pedro pitches good enough to win, but gets a no decision. Six innings, five hits, two runs and seven strike-outs. Enter Anastacio Martinez in his major league debut. Nine pitches later the top of the seventh is in the books. Sox take the lead in the bottom of the seventh, pad it in the eighth, Foulke in the ninth and you’ve got another “W”, which is all that really matters.
Manny hit another absolute bomb that landed somewhere on the Mass Pike just short of the one he hit Friday night.
Jeter went 0-for-4 and is now batting .190 for the season as the Yanks blew a 3-1 lead and lost to Texas.
Giambi was put on the 15-day DL with a sprained ankle.
Pokey was unable to drop a bunt on three attempts, but I still love the man.
The Sox MUST sweep today. They have only swept a Tampa Bay series other than the huge Yankees sweep.
