The Yankees and Red Sox added another juicy chapter to their long rivalry Saturday in a game where emotions and theatrics overshadowed a fine---and final?---performance at Fenway for Roger Clemens, not to mention another masterly outing from Mariano Rivera. The Yanks won 4-3, and have a golden opportunity to take charge of the serious on Sunday night when David Wells faces off against John Burkett. The Red Sox, who have made a speciality of rebounding from tough defeats all season long, need to bounce back once again.
Here are David Pinto's posts on the game. I've finally calmed down myself---I can't recall being so fired up during a game---, the medication has kicked in, and I will write a full game summary tomorrow afternoon. It might as well be Christmas in October for the newspapers in Boston and New York, huh? I can't wait to read all the cheese piled on this game tomorrow, because this one is going down as one of the all-time classics between Boston and New York.
