    How special was Chien-Ming Wang in this game?

    Let’s put it this way: The last time a Yankees right-handed starter pitched on the road and went 7+ innings allowing no earned runs was on May 31, 2006. Yeah, that’s just about two years ago. (The last time a Yankees RH-starter went 7+ on the road allowing no actual runs was September 17, 2005.)

    The last time that a Yankees starting pitcher, regardless of his throwing hand, pitched a game in Cleveland going 7+ innings and allowing no earned runs was on July 11, 2002. Yeah, that’s almost six years ago.

    When was the last time the Yankees won a 1-0 regular season game in Cleveland? It was May 30, 1981.

    That’s a long, long, time ago. What Wang did today, well, you don’t see that everyday in Yankeeland. Special, indeed.

      Wang looked great yesterday and he has been good this whole season besides that one game against Boston. With Wang adding pitches this year to his aresnal this could be the year he finally wins 20 games.
