Yankees - 000 010 201 - 4 10 1Wang (9-2-1-0-3) was pretty much unhittable tonight. He threw only 92 pitches in a complete game performance, facing two batters over the minimum. Drew's solo home run was Boston's only run.
Red Sox - 000 010 000 - 1 2 0
Buchholz (6-4-1-3-3) matched Wang out for out through the first four innings. He stumbled in the fifth and sixth, but still left the game after six innings with a 1-1 tie. Then Francona brought Timlin in -- straight from the disabled list. Guess what? White Flag gave up a home run to Giambi and a double to Molina, who later scored. And that was that.

I really have nothing more to say about the Red Sox the entire season. We've covered that ground and, basically, I'm tired of talking about them.He's a man of his word, right?
