Red Sox vs. Yankees (Game 1) – August 28, 2007

Yankees Red Sox

It is that time of year again where the Nation faces off against the Evil Empire in “Hell” (Yankee Stadium because that is where the devil lives). Yesterday, the Yankees lost to the Tigers 16-0 making the Red Sox lead in the AL East 8 games, unfortunately for the Red Sox, the difference in game 1 was the former Boston favorite Johnny Damon. The now hated number 18 hit a two run home run off of Daisuke Matsuzaka in the bottom of the seventh inning.

In the first inning, the Yankees took a 2-0 lead but the Red Sox came back to tie it. The Yankees then lead by 1 run after Jeter hit a home run in the fifth. It wasn’t until the top of the 7th that Varitek tied it up with his home run to make the score 3-3. However, it ended the scoring after Damon’s home run.

Granted the Red Sox lead is still 7 games in the East, but it would have been nice to take a game 1 win making it a 9 game lead. Tomorrow nights game is Josh Beckett (16-5) against Roger Clemens (5-5). Beckett is tied with two other pitchers for the MLB leaders in wins and teammate Wakefield is one of them. It will be a great matchup tomorrow and hopefully we will be able to take game 2 and 3.

Damon Sucks, Yankees Suck, GO RED SOX!!!
