May 17 vs Texas - W 4-3

After a string of early exits, the Yankees needed Wang to give the bullpen a break tonight. In typical Wang fashion, he managed 8 innings while only throwing 80 pitches.

Mariano Rivera finally had a 1-2-3 inning, protecting a fragile lead in the 9th.

Jorge Posada came to play once again. And to think I wanted him traded during the offseason?

Not much more to say. Arod, Jeter, and Posada are stepping it up when the team needs it most. And did Giambi hustle on that double or what? That was definately unexpected.

Jaret Wright starts tomorrow. He could have a job for a little longer, because Carl Pavano left his rehab start today in AA Trenton after one inning. Oh Pavano...
