Wang is amazing. That is his 6th win of the season as he threw 6 innings of 1 run ball, striking out 5. Farnsworth-Chamberlain-Rivera finished the game off with 3 scoreless innings. Farnsworth was especially impressive with 2 strikeouts in his inning of work. Melky hit a 2-run double with Ensberg and Matsui knocking in runs of their own.
Jeter went 0-4, though he did score a run. Molina was 0-3 but had a sac fly. All in all, not a bad game.
Bedard gave up two unearned runs and took the loss, but his final line was 7 innings with 1 earned run. Technically a better outing than Wang who did get the win. I guess its not as bad as Roy Halladay pitching 3 complete games and losing 2 of them. That guys on the wrong team.

Alex Rodriguez 4hr = $4.00
Hideki Matsui 3 hr = $3.00
Bobby Abreu 4hr = $4.00
Jorge Posada 1hr = $1.00
Jason Giambi 5hr = $5.00
Johnny Damon 3hr = $3.00
