Jeter beat Schilling; but, Ortiz could not beat Rivera. Cool.
O.K., I do have to say this – and I dislike Curt Schilling as much as any player that I dislike in the game – Schilling pitched a great ballgame today…up until that Jeter homer. He only need 61 pitches to get through the first six innings…against the Yankees line-up. That’s something.
Great effort from Clemens tonight too. That’s more than I expected. I hope he’s able to keep that up from here.
Big win here for the Yankees. A loss would have meant another gain for the Tigers. And, New York cannot afford to allow the Tigers to get any closer in the Wildcard standings.
Lastly, show of hands. How many other Yankees fans threw up when they saw Torre had Kei Igawa warming in the pen when Joba got into trouble in the seventh?
