Game 1: Everything Goes Right, Game 2: Everything Goes Wrong
By mvyb, 11:10

In the first game of New York's day-night doubleheader against Detroit, Chien-Ming Wang was brilliant. He pitched 7 and 2/3rds innings of scoreless baseball, holding the Tigers down to just 3 hits. Wang struck out three and induced 13 ground-ball outs.
 
The offense came from Craig Wilson who launched a monster solo home run into the left field stands and Jason Giambi who added an insurance run on a sac fly.
 
Game 2 was a bit more pathetic. The Yankees finally received a strong outing from Jaret Wright: 6.1IP, 6H, 2ER, BB, 5K
 
It was Wright's longest outing of the year. Brian Bruney and Ron Villone did an outstanding job in relief ( getting the Yanks out of two major jams). Derek Jeter ( 2-run double) and Alex Rodriguez ( RBI groundout) drove in all the Yankee runs. But as a team, the Bombers only collected 3 hits. Not so good. So into the ninth we went, with our hearts set on a sweep.
 
 
And Scott Proctor rudely rips them out.  After walking two batters, Proctor hung a breakingball to Craig Monroe. Because he pitched in Game 1, Rivera wasn't available.... and without him, we can't win.
