Yankee Bats Come Alive Against Curt Schilling and the Red Sox

Game date- 5/10/06

Red Sox- 3, Yankees- 7

W- Mussina (6-1)
L- Schilling (5-2)















New York's Jorge Posada hits an upper-deck, two-run home run in the fifth inning against Boston starter Curt Schilling.

Yankee Starting Lineup:

CF- Damon, 1-4 (1B, RBI)
SS- Jeter, 1-4 (1B, R)
1B- Giambi, 2-4 ( 1B, R, 2RBI, 2-run HR [12] )
3B- Rodriguez, 2-4 (1B, R, RBI, solo HR [7] )
LF- Matsui, 0-3 (BB, R)

Yankee Pitchers:

Mussina- 7H, 3R, BB, 5K, 6.2IP
Myers- H, 0IP
Proctor- K, 1.1IP

Notes:

Mike Mussina had a rough first two innings (giving up home runs to Ortiz and Lowell), but settled down and pitched very well. Mussina picked up his league-best 6th win of the season after pitching an inning and a third.

The Yankees were down 3 to 0 in the third inning, but Bernie Williams' sac fly in the third and Jason Giambi's 2-run home run in the fourth inning tied the game. Alex Rodriguez hit a go-ahead solo home run in the fifth inning ( followed by Jorge Posada's two-run blast).

In the seventh inning with runners on first and third with two outs, Scott Proctor was brought into the game. He struck out Manny Ramirez to end the inning and stifle a Red Sox' rally. He pitched a scoreless eighth to improve his ERA to 1.25.
