-Yankees 4 Mariners 2: Chien-Ming Wang makes it look easy. Get on the mound, throw sinker after sinker and leave the game after seven or so innings and a lot of ground balls. Monday he won his tenth game of the year as he held Seattle to seven hits and two runs over seven innings while producing nineteen grounders.
An interesting subplot to the evening was Alex Rodriguez’s three errors. A-Rod made three bad throws and went 0-4 at the plate. In the eighth inning he was lifted from the game for Nick Green. There has been no word of an injury, so perhaps this was a case of Joe Torre trying to protect his player? One thing is for sure, with the hypersensitive A-Rod, this game may linger for awhile.
