Reversal Of Fortune Yankees Sweep Bo-Sox Take Finale 5-0


Okay let's review, the New York Yankees came into their three game series against the American League Eastern Division leading Boston Red Sox on the ropes. They returned to the Bronx after a devastating 2-5 road trip losing their last game of the trip to the Detroit Tigers 16-0. They had seen deficit grow from four games to eight games behind Boston in about a weeks time. Meanwhile the Red Sox had just swept the Chicago White Sox in a four game series by an aggregate total of 46-7. This did happen didn't it? I wasn't in some alternate universe, or had an extended dream did I ? Well the tables were turned completely as New York took game three sweeping the series, and winning Thursday afternoon 5-0. Yankees starter Chien-Ming Wang did not give up his first and only hit of the game until the seventh, and Robinson Cano took Curt Schilling yard twice. Those would be the only two runs that Schilling would give up but it was enough for him to get the loss. The other three runs were were surrendered by Hideki Okajima in just two thirds of an inning by far his worst appearance of the year. New York is now back to just five games behind Boston after the sweep. The Boston Red Sox have put out an APB in Chicago looking for the offense they left behind there.
