Hideki Matsui had a big day, going 2 for 2 with three walks, a single, and a three-run home run ( his fifth of the year). Kelly Stinnet had two RBIs ( on a bases-loaded single), his first two as a Yankee.

Chien Ming Wang was very effective over his six innings of work, giving up only 3 runs. Tanyon Sturze came on in relief, but loaded the bases (without recording an out). Scott Proctor was called in and did an incredible job shutting down the Rangers ( allowing only one of the three base-runners score).

This victory marked Joe Torre's 1,000th victory as Yankee manager.

The Yankees have an off-day tomorrow, but will host the Red Sox in a three-game set Tuesday through Thursday.
