With this game, Chien-Ming Wang’s road ERA this season is now 4.44 – compared to a mark of 3.40 when he pitches in the Bronx.
Last year, Wang’s ERA was 3.03 at home and 4.35 on the road. In 2005, his ERA was 3.55 at home and 4.65 on the road.
Anyone seeing a trend here? Home ERA near three – and the ERA is around four-and-a-half on the road. I think Chien-Ming likes Yankee Stadium – or vice-versa.
It’s great to see the Yankees win these games that they’re supposed to win. Now, it’s time for Mussina and Igawa to show us something over the next two games. I’m less than sure that they will show us something good. That’s why the last two games from Clemens and Wang are so important to the Yankees recent run.
