Another Wang-derful Outing

What would we do without CM Wang? He's been our most consistent starter this season.

Nate Robertson didn't seem to have any real special stuff, but he stifled the Yanks lineup save for the 5th where they broke through for 2. Craig Wilson finally contributed with the bat, hammering his 3rd Yankee HR. Giambi later followed with a sac-line-drive scoring Damon.

It's ironic that the one pitch that Proctor threw to record an out, and hold the lead, was the same pitch that Craig Monroe connected with on his first pitch in the nightcap to lose the game. I guess he (or hitting coach Don Slaught) was paying close attention.

Some fine infield D - notably from Arod and Cano - helped Wang earn his 16th win - now tied for the lead.

2-0 Yanks

3*: Wang, 7.2 ip, 0 r
2: Wilson, 1-3, HR, hbp
1: Jeter, 3-5
