Joba: Even with a six-run lead, Chamberlain seemed to lack confidence. He wasn’t awful and he picked up the win, but he was not the same pitcher we saw in his last three starts. In the end, Joba went 5 innings, gave up 4 runs on 6 hits (2 homeruns) and walked 7 batters.
BB: Yankee pitchers walked 12 batters. Luckily, the Red Sox rarely capitalized on the free passes.
Claggett: In the ninth inning he walked two, gave up two hits and two runs.
Damon: Yankee Stadium was built for Johnny, who smacked his 20th round-tripper against his former team. He was 3-5 on the night, with 3 runs, and an RBI.
Teixeira: Teixiera went 3-4 with 2 runs, an RBI and a homerun. He also flashed his glove a few times, which I find never gets old.
Melky: He hit a monster three-run homerun that gave the Yankees the lead.…
