The only disappointing fact taken away from tonight's game was that Jaret Wright, once again, only pitched five innings. Fortunately, they were 5 scoreless innings, in which he struck out 6 batters. Wright has struggled terribly in the sixth inning, so Torre decided not to mess around and to pull him before he could do any damage. The New York bullpen pitched four scoreless innings, not even allowing one hit or walk. Farnsworth, who was out with back spasms for almost a week, pitched very, very well in the eighth.

After a triple by Miguel Cairo, Jaret Wright brought him home with a deep sac fly to left field in the fifth inning. Derek Jeter had an RBI single in the seventh, and the Yanks expanded their lead in the eighth with RBI singles by Melky Cabrera, Miguel Cairo, and Johnny Damon.
