Boston Red Sox edge New York Yankees 6 - 5 in game 59 of season
Whatever the circumstance, the Red Sox can do no wrong against the Yankees in 2009.
With its seventh win in as many tries against New York this season, Boston strode into first place in the AL East alone, chipping away with a run in each of the first four innings.
Yankees - 010 110 200 - 5 11 0
Red Sox - 121 200 00x - 6 9 0
Yet another Yankees starter failed to finish the third inning and the Red Sox bullpen held the line to notch the seventh straight win over the New Yorkers this season.
Wang (2.2-6-4-3-3) threw 29 pitches in each of the first two innings. He walked three in the first inning, with Bay's single putting the Sox on the board. In the second, Nick Green and Dustin Pedroia struck back-to-back RBI doubles. Mike Lowell drove Wang's first pitch of the third over the Wall for a dong. However, Wang's miserable performance did lower his ERA: 14.46 to 14.34!
