Arod goes from goat to hero

Two innings previous, Arod popped out with the tying run on third and no outs. In the ninth, he homered on an 0-2 pitch to give the Yanks the lead. Funny how things can change so fast.

Some play by Melky... and some play by Abreu (the one in the eighth inning).

Anyway, it was great to take the second straight series from Boston, but the problem is not having a letdown the rest of the time.

Roger Clemens was set to start Monday's game against Chicago but pulled himself due to a 'fatigued groin.' Matt DeSalvo will start instead, with Rocket's return likely Saturday against Pittsburgh.

PS: I just got a new HDTV, and it was beautiful watching the Sawx fans stream out of Fenway after Arod's bomb. Speaking of which, are they not the most bi-polar fans you've ever seen? If there's a player they don't like (even on their own team), they're completely, utterly merciless - yet if there's a player they deem 'worthy,' he's treated like conquering royalty, e.g. Josh Beckett getting a standing ovation after 6.1 innings and four earned runs. Pay attention New England, that's actually not a quality start (in fact it makes for an era of 5.68).
