New York Yankees 6- Boston Red Sox 4

Everyone by now should know that there is no easy win when it comes the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry. This game was no easy win for the Yankees. It took an 8th inning baseloaded walk by Nick Johnson to take the lead for good and Robinson Cano 9th inning solo home run gave the Yankees insurance. It was sloppy game defensively with 3 errors, but a win is a win. The big error that hurt was Marco Scutaro error in the 8th inning which would've ended the inning with the game still tied, but no give the Yankees an extra out and they will take advantage which they did. In the 9th inning, Mariano Rivera seal the win with a save like usual.

A.J. Burnett first start of the season was ok. He allowed 3 runs in 5 innings. He walked only one and struck out five, but he

Whose Your Daddy? The Yankees are still your daddy Pedro as they beat you once again. A.J. Burnett was magnificant, this is the A.J. Burnett the Yankees wanted that constantly beated them in the past. Burnett went 7 innings and gave up only one run. He threw a lot of 1st pitch strikes and he made Ryan Howard look silly.

Teixeria and Matsui went deep and you hope that gets them both going. Now that there is no DH, I expect Matsui to get real hot if it goes back to the Bronx for Game 6.

As for predictions I think the Yankees have to win games 3 & 4 with Pettite and Sabathia going because Cole Hamels is struggling in the playoffs and Joe Blanton, the Yankees has seen in the past and I believe the Yankees hit well against. I think the Yankees will make Hamels and Blanton throw a lot of pitches.

Well it was good game, but it didn't go the Yankees way. I'm going to straight to the point with I hear most people are saying already about not taking out Burnett earlier. I have to agree with Girardi move, Burnett had a low pitch count and he could've pitched a lot longer. As for Burnett, in the 1st inning I think he got little ahead of himself and not executing his pitches. As for the bullpen, in Hughes and Chamberlain, they need to relax. They probably thought it was over, but you still have make the pitches and you play 27 outs. Hughes definitely struggled and Chamberlain still doesn't look like the old Joba in the bullpen in this postseason.

Teixeria, Matsui, Cano all had big hits with runners in scoring position and you hope that gets them going.

Swisher still needs to get hits,

Hello, This is Alan.

The Twins has given the Yankees some competition and hard fought wins. Even though the Yankees won game 1 by the score of 7-2, the Twins still manage to make the Yankees feel uneasy at times. In game 2 they that especially, but the Yankees prevail in games 1 and 2 and now have a commanding 2-0. They will go for the sweep on Sunday at the Metrodome with Andy Pettite going against Carl Pavano.

The Twins has major issues. They can't seem to hold on to leads against NY. They have had leads in all nine games, but fail to hold on to them, four walk offs in those nine games.

Game 1 starter CC Sabathia was good, not great. He gave up some hits, but he prevail to allow one earn run and a win

Game 2 starter Burnett was good. He gave way too many walks and hit a couple batters.
