Notes:

Chien Ming Wang pitched an incredible ball game, going 8 strong innings and giving up no runs. He got many ground ball outs and induced several double plays.

Alex Rodriguez belted a tie-breaking solo home run off of Barry Zito in the sixth inning. Bernie Williams also hit a solo home run (later in the eighth inning).

The Yankee defense was great, Robinson Cano and Andy Phillips both making spectacular plays. The Yankees infield turned 5 double plays during the game.
