NYY 3 6 0

BOS 1 7 0
WP: Park (1-1)
LP: Papelbon (0-1)
S: Rivera (2)

Player/ Play/ Turning Point of the Game: None other than Curtis Granderson. The newest Yankees hit the go-ahead home run in the top of the tenth off Jonathan Papelbon, which proved to be the game-winner and give the Yankees all they needed to win. I'm really impressed with Granderson already. Usually it takes time for new players to settle in, but he's off to a great start, and the way he's handled himself with the media proves to be he's a good fit for New York. He seems to have the persona of Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Mark Teixeira.

Honorable Mention: Chan Ho Park. After Park blew the game Sunday, he came back and gave the Yanks three scoreless innings late in the game when the Yankees needed him most. As much as I hated him after Sunday, he's earned some respect the way he bounced back.

Other Notes:
Andy Pettitte hit Kevin Youkilis in the helmet in the bottom of the fifth. John Lackey hit Derek Jeter in the top of the sixth. Pettitte's never been a guy to throw at anyone and I doubt Lackey wants to put the leadoff man on late in a 1-0 game. I say it was a coincidence, or just stupid baseball on the Red Sox for actually hitting Jeter instead of just brushing him back.

Andy Pettitte had an effective first start of the season. He went six innings, giving up six hits and striking out 4.


We'll find something to post about tomorrow...until then See Ya!
