Red Sox 5, Yanks 4

Sox it to me?

Finally, there was a good game [1] to be had in Boston between the Sox and Yanks [2]. But New York could not hold [3] a 4-1 lead, and defensive mistakes by Alex Rodriguez [4] and Hideki Matsui [5] helped give the Sox the victory.

Rodriguez [6] continues to struggle, though he did line a solid single to left—his first hit of the series–in his final at bat. John Harper [7] has a sympathetic look at the slugger’s early-season slump in the News today. In all, it was a weekend to forget for the Yankees and their fans. But the resident Yankee-crank at the New York Times, George Vecsey [8] reminds us why yesterday was a great day if you root for the Red Sox. Gee, thanks professor.

The Yanks move to Chicago tonight for a three-game series versus the White Sox before returning home to face Boston this weekend. Lefty-handed rookie pitcher, Alex Graman [9] makes his big league debut tonight for the Yanks. This would be a good time for the Yankee offense to lend a helping hand, huh?
