Jaret Wright pitched very decently through his first five innings of work. In fact, he went into the sixth with a 3 to 1 lead. But there, things just fell apart. Wright walked Ramirez and gave up hits to Nixon and Varitek. Then he hit a batter to load the bases with nobody out. Proctor came in and made things worse. Proctor allowed two runs to score on a sac fly and an error by Rodriguez. In the next inning, Proctor served up a three-run homer to Jason Varitek, and Scott Erickson gave up a two-run single to Alex Gonzalez.

The Yankees scored their three runs all on solo home runs. Johnny Damon ( leading off the game), Robinson Cano, and Bernie Williams all went yard. But the Yankees only picked up 4 hits and a walk, so they didn't have the opportunity to drive in many runs of Schilling.
