Clay Buchholz (3.27, 136 ERA+) / NYY: RHP Chien-Ming Wang (1.23, 341 ERA+)
A rematch of last Friday's game. Wang threw a complete-game two-hitter (New York lost the other two games in the three-game series) and Buchholz allowed only one run and four hits in six innings.
That's the best start that I've had this year. It's just something to build off of. I didn't do anything great. I think I did the little things good enough to get by and keep the team in the game to win. ... They've seen me once and I've seen them, so I think each of us have maybe a little bit of an edge on one another.Manny Ramirez is 13-for-25 against Wang. ... Nine of Kevin Youkilis's 20 hits this season have been for extra bases, giving him a .635 slugging percentage and a team-high 186 OPS+. Plus, he's been kind enough to allow a family of sparrows to live in his goatee until daddy bird can find a new job.
