Yankees Take Game One From Boston 5-3

"Team Schizophrenia" is at it again! After coming home from a 2-5 road trip including going 1-3 against Detroit, the New York Yankees looked like they were a team ripe for the picking. The Yankees were hosting Eastern Division leaders the Boston Red Sox who they trailed by 8 games after cutting the lead to 4 games a week earlier. But the Yankees behind a solid start by Andy Pettitte manned up Tuesday night and beat Boston 5-3 in the first game of a three game series. The big offensive blow for New York was a tie breaking home run by former Boston centerfielder Johnny Damon off Red Sox starter Daisuke Matsuzaka who lost to New York for the first time. The win gives Pettitte a 12-7 record, Matsuzaka falls to 13-11. Mariano Rivera got his 21st save.
