Chien Ming Wang was not very good tonight; his sinker did not sink far enough. He left many pitches out over the plate, therefore allowing was too many fly balls. He gave up 11 hits and two walks in just 5 and a third innings pitched.

Jason Giambi's two-run homer in the first was all the offense for the Yanks. After Giambi's 25th blast, the Yankee bats were silenced by Jeremy Sowers.
