2/3 of the Earth is covered by water, the rest is covered by Melky Cabrera

In a dramatic game last night, the Yankees edged Boston 2-1. Chien-Ming Wang finally got over his Boston woes, pitching seven innings of one run ball, but the highlight of the game came in the top of the eighth.

Kyle Farnsworth, who has struggled of late, was set to face Mark Loretta, David Ortiz, and Manny Ramirez nursing a 2-1 lead. Farnsworth retired Loretta and then struck out Ortiz, which brought up Manny, who hit one that looked like it would tie the game. Melky Cabrera raced back to the wall, jumped, and caught the ball, taking away what looked like it would be a HR and saving the game. Mariano Rivera cruised through the top of the ninth, and the Yankees had another victory over their arch-rivals.

Andy Phillips was also key yesterday, despite going 0 for 4. He flashed the leather on several plays that kept the game close.

While it was nice to see Bernie go deep, his defense in RF was really painful to watch yesterday. Bernie's HR likely locked up another month of starts for him. I don't think he should be playing as much as he has so far, and would like to see Kevin Thompson get a chance, especially before Bubba Crosby returns and relegates Thompson back to Columbus undeservedly.

Schilling vs. Wright tonight which seems to be a huge advantage for Boston, but that's why they play the games.
