CLEVELAND -- Six months have passed since Chien-Ming Wang trudged into the visitors' clubhouse at the newly renamed Progressive Field, hanging his head after being soundly rapped in the first game of the American League Division Series.
A different Wang appeared in Cleveland on Sunday, and in the reprise pitching matchup of that ill-fated October opener, he had every reason to stand tall.

With Melky Cabrera's solo homer accounting for the only run of the game and Mariano Rivera closing it out for the 450th time in his career, Wang outdueled defending AL Cy Young Award winner C.C. Sabathia, hurling seven scoreless innings as the Yankees edged the Indians, 1-0, to snap a three-game losing streak in a classic pitchers' duel.

"Chien-Ming Wang has been huge for us all year long," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "He has pitched great. He knew what we needed and he gave it to us."

Wang continued his undefeated opening to the season and finished the month of April 5-0, joining Arizona's Brandon Webb as the Majors' only five-game winners -- though Webb won his sixth later Sunday. Wang showcased his improving slider to strike out a season-high nine, one shy of a career high, and only allowed one runner to get as far as third base.

Wang said that he did not take any additional motivation from facing Cleveland again, saying, "Every team is the same," but clearly his approach changed from last October.

Yankees righty pushes Mariners two back with 7 1/3 innings
NEW YORK -- There's no denying how much the Yankees need strong pitching performances every night, and there's no cheapening how valuable an ace like Chien-Ming Wang can be.
But when the offense is clicking, it's hard to imagine that any of that might matter.

Wang allowed one run in 7 1/3 innings against the Mariners, guiding the Yankees to a 12-3 win and pushing their American League Wild Card edge back to two games on Tuesday. And while the Yankees needed that dominance early, they weren't quite as dependent on it later, after the offense awoke for three runs in the sixth inning and seven more in the seventh to blast open the game.

"The final score really didn't indicate what kind of game it was," Yankees manager Joe Torre said.

That's because it's hard for one number to describe an offensive circus. The Yankees drilled four home runs in all -- two from Jorge Posada, and one each from Alex Rodriguez and Bobby Abreu -- and tallied up 20 hits. Eight of those came in the seventh, when they sent 12 batters to the plate and scored more than half of them. By the time that rally was complete, every Yankees starter other than Hideki Matsui had collected at least one hit and one RBI, and Matsui reached base twice himself.

Ace takes game to new level thanks to Guidry's guidance



NEW YORK -- They walked side-by-side out a blue concrete corridor, through the bowels of Yankee Stadium and up to street level: the 6-foot-3 ace hurler holding a good size advantage over the club's top pitcher some three decades prior.
Clutching a Coca-Cola cup and clad in a baggy Nike T-shirt, Chien-Ming Wang looked down at his pitching coach, Ron Guidry, listening attentively. Wang understood that, even within his afternoon's importance, he still had some growing to do.

Wang took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and Robinson Cano homered twice, completing a series sweep of the Red Sox with a 5-0 victory on Thursday. Wang allowed just one hit, but it was the free passes -- four of them -- that chafed both teacher and pupil, vowing to improve upon for next time.

"Back to the drawing board," Guidry said.

DETROIT -- As a rainy marathon inched past midnight and into the early-morning hours, the Yankees literally had to shoo Chien-Ming Wang from the dugout bench at Comerica Park, urging him to flag down a hotel-bound cab and rest.

Begrudgingly, Wang left his teammates and had to later be filled in on the sour details of an extra-inning loss to the Tigers. But the Yankees were glad that he had, especially as Wang pitched eight strong innings and put a win on the board on Saturday night.

Wang allowed two runs (one earned) in a performance that showcased the best of his arsenal, Johnny Damon flashed new life with a home run and Melky Cabrera legged out a three-run triple as the Yankees defeated the Tigers, 7-2.

"Everybody out there understood how important this game was, especially after last night's loss," said Yankees manager Joe Torre. "We need to minimize bad stuff."

NEW YORK -- The urgency of Alex Rodriguez's chase for a home run has worn off. The Yankees are too busy putting runs on the scoreboard, with or without A-Rod.
Robinson Cano homered for the third time in four games and Melky Cabrera contributed an unusual two-run infield ground-rule double, backing Chien-Ming Wang and helping the Yankees to a 7-1 victory over the Royals on Friday.

The victory was the Yankees' fourth in five games against cellar-dwelling Kansas City, helping New York improve its record since the All-Star break to a Major League-best 16-7.

"For us, every win is important right now in the second half," Cano said. "[If] we want to make it to the playoffs, we need to win some games."

Rodriguez's last home run came on July 25 at Kansas City, and the return of Royal blue uniforms to the mound didn't spur the Major Leagues' leader off his perch of 35 homers.

Then again, it hasn't mattered -- with Rodriguez joking that perhaps he could become a "choppy hitter," he has concentrated more on a line-drive approach, which translated to a double in three at-bats, plus a sacrifice fly and a walk that spurred a sellout crowd of 54,246 to vociferously boo Royals left-hander Odalis Perez.

BALTIMORE -- The Yankees found themselves in yet another close game against the Orioles on Sunday afternoon, but this time, they found their collective stride at the plate late in the game to march to a 10-6 win.
New York batted around in the eighth inning and awoke for five runs to avoid being swept for the first time in more than a month and end Baltimore's winning streak at six games.

The late surge made a difference, and a multitude of hitters lent a hand in the rally. Johnny Damon, who started in left field for the first time in the three-game series, made a great impact both at the plate and in the field. Damon hit into his first two double plays of the season on Saturday night but rebounded well, going 3-for-5 with two RBIs and four runs scored on Sunday, including an RBI double in the eighth.

"Johnny had a great game offensively, defensively and on the bases," Yankees manager Joe Torre said. "That's the kind of game that he can really build on."

Damon preserved the Yankees' 4-2 lead in the fourth inning, when he robbed Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts of an extra-base hit with a leaping grab in the left-center-field gap. Damon last played left field in the Yankees' last win on Wednesday.

"If I don't come up with it, they score two runs and have Roberts on second or third base with some other guys up who are swinging the bats well," Damon said. "That was something I needed to do."

Abreu's five RBIs lift Yanks past Rays



ST. PETERSBURG -- The Yankees did a lot of things right on Friday. Everything but win, that is, after a big inning doomed them. On Saturday, New York made sure to redeem itself.
It was much the same scenario on Saturday as it was one night prior, with New York down three early after its starter battled through a rocky frame. The Yankees weren't about to go down without a fight two nights in a row.

Thanks to Bobby Abreu, they didn't have to.

"Last year, when we got him, he was such a perfect fit for what we do," manager Joe Torre said of Abreu, who had five RBIs in the Yankees' 6-4 win over the Rays on Saturday at Tropicana Field. "And tonight was another example. It was a great game for him."

"This is the problem with fans from Taiwan. They are really only here to cheer for 1 player, not for the Yankees. If Wang pitches a great game, and the Yankees still lose, the Taiwanese are still happy. If someone has an error, the Taiwanese fans come on this board and blame that player for Wang losing.

The baseball season is 162 games. Even if Wang has a great season and wins 20 games, there is still 142 games that other players on this team need to win.

Wang is a great player on a team. The rest of the players on this team make it possible for Wang to win. Alex Rodriguez plays most of those 162 games. Wang may play 30."

大聯盟上半球季結束,紐約洋基官網今天針對了洋基上半季的表現,做了一個簡單的季中報告,雖然洋基整體表現不甚理想,但王建民今年上半球季9勝4敗防禦率3.36的表現,依舊是獲得了洋基官網的高度肯定,官網今天直接表明,王建民就是紐約洋基的王牌ACE。

而洋基上半季的MVP,官網則無爭議的把這個榮耀頒給了A-ROD,A-ROD今年擺脫了去年季後賽的陰影,打出了來到洋基的代表作,交出了30支全壘打86分打點的成績,兩項攻擊數據都在大聯盟居領先地位,獲得此殊榮可以說是實至名歸。

但無疑的,今年的球季對總教練托瑞以來說,是他執掌洋基兵符12年以來,表現最糟糕的球季,因為今年的洋基勝率始終不能突破5成,如果季末托瑞無法帶領洋基進入季後賽,今年季末托瑞可能就會結束他的洋基執教生涯,托瑞對此也無奈的表示:「當你昨天無法贏得比賽,所有人不會管你做了什麼,紀錄代表了一切,因為這裡是洋基」。

此外,洋基官網認為,今年洋基會表現的如此不振,投打失調是最主要的原因,官網點出,有時候投手群表現理想時,打擊群就會無預警的熄火,有時候打擊群大爆發的話,當天投手卻又罩不住,也因為如此讓洋基出現了那麼多場的一分差輸球的比賽。

不過,對於下半季的到來,洋基還是充滿信心,隊長基特就表示:「我們不會去擔心誰是分區冠軍、誰是外卡、誰在追逐我們,重點是,我們要好好的在剩下的賽程中贏得每一場比賽」。

上次與波士頓紅襪交手吞下本季第2敗的王建民,今天(22日)上演「王子復仇記」,主投6.1局,被擊出7安打只丟兩分,並三振5名打者,助紐約洋基以6比2擊敗紅襪,建仔拿下本季第3勝,獨居洋基勝投王位置,且是個人2連勝,同時改寫生涯單場投球數最多的紀錄(115球)。

王建民一開賽就賞給魯戈(Julio Lugo)三振,緊接著用內野滾地球取得第2個出局數,可是接下來保送歐提茲(David Ortiz),又被拉米雷茲(Manny Ramirez)揮出安打,幸好建仔最後讓祖魯(J.D. Drew)擊出二壘滾地球,結束一局上投球。

洋基打線首局就有所貢獻,戴蒙(Johnny Damon)安打上壘,隨即盜上二壘,本季只要王建民登板就打擊失常的羅德里蓋茲(Alex Rodriguez),抓準紅襪先發魏克菲爾(Tim Wakefield)沒有掉下來的蝴蝶球,一棒揮出兩分全壘打,這是A-Rod本季第18轟(領先大聯盟)。

二局上王建民雖先解決兩名打者,包含第2次三振,卻接連被揮出兩支安打,魯戈又因洋基游擊手基特(Derek Jeter)失誤上壘,形成滿壘的緊張局面,不過建仔漂亮用三振尤克勒斯(Kevin Youkilis)出局,讓紅襪得分美夢破滅。

最近身陷禁藥風波的吉昂比(Jason Giambi)在二局下貢獻右外野陽春全壘打,隊長基特又在兩人出局,一、三壘有人時,敲出適時1分打點安打,洋基再下兩城。擁有四分的領先優勢,王建民三局上半表演三上三下,更投出第4次三振。

拿手的下沉速球終於恢復威力!王建民昨天先發7局只被敲6支安打、失1分,是一場「優質先發」;終場洋基8比1擊敗白襪隊,建仔拿下本季第2勝(另3敗)。防禦率從5.40進步到4.54,掃清上一戰遭遊騎兵隊痛擊的陰霾。這也是建仔生涯首次戰勝白襪,在美聯14支球隊中,所屬的洋基不算,只剩天使隊尚未贏過。本月下旬對天使3連戰他就有機會先發,尋求另類美聯「完全勝投」紀錄。

建仔昨天是在雙重賽第2場先發,比賽因天雨延後1個多小時,而當地氣溫又低,能保持手感誠屬不易。而每逢建仔先發,首局是觀察重點。果然1局下他只用10球,其中7顆好球,造成2個內野滾地球出局、1個三振,可見狀況不錯。

此役建仔危機處理能力頗佳、運氣也不錯。如4局下一開始被敲2支一壘打,接下來4、5棒打者柯諾科、麥考維克都打成外野飛球出局。6局下又是無人出局一、二壘有人,但3棒傑曼戴高飛球被接殺,4棒柯諾科三振。5棒麥考維克擊出安打,白襪扳回一城;所幸歐蘇納搶攻三壘被夾殺在二、三壘之間,結束這半局攻勢。

這2局的攻防相當有趣,建仔需要滾地球製造雙殺,卻出現3個飛球出局,且未造成傷害。而第6局唯一的滾地球卻是安打,還好歐蘇納貪功,而洋基中外野手卡布瑞拉判斷準確、臂力又強,硬是將跑者刺殺出局。

白襪因「雙重賽」之故,主將井口資仁、帕辛斯基(7局下代打後擔任捕手)均未先發,長打能力最強的陶米也在15天傷兵名單,凡此均對建仔有利。此役建仔對白襪中心打者8打數、2安打,對方打擊率2成50、有1打點。比起上一戰對遊騎兵中心打者10打數7安打4打點,壓制力改善很多,也是贏球關鍵。

CHICAGO -- Chien-Ming Wang pitched seven strong innings and Hideki Matsui drove in four runs as the Yankees rolled to an 8-1 victory over the White Sox on Wednesday, securing a split of a day-night doubleheader at U.S. Cellular Field.
Having dropped the first game of the rain-necessitated twin bill behind a troubled effort from Mike Mussina, the Yankees sorely needed a solid starting performance.

They got one from Wang, who limited the White Sox to one earned run and six hits in picking up his second victory of the season, leaving with a three-run lead before the Yankees blew the game open with four runs -- including homers from Melky Cabrera and Jorge Posada -- in the ninth inning.

"It's all about Wang today," said Yankees manager Joe Torre. "Considering the fact that it was a close game, he was terrific. He got some good hitters out with men on base."

The Yankees staked Wang (2-3) to a lead in the third inning, scoring two unearned runs off Chicago starter Jose Contreras.

Derek Jeter reached on a one-out error and moved to second when Jason Giambi worked his second walk of the game. After Alex Rodriguez lined out, Matsui drilled a shot over the head of center fielder Darin Erstad, rolling to the wall and driving in both runners.

西雅圖水手果然是王建民奪勝的最佳對手!建仔本季第3度先發,主投8局只被揮出兩安打丟1分,三振4次,更從首局起連續解決22名打者,配合隊友在六局下狂掃5分的火力支援,最後洋基以8比1輕取水手,台灣球迷期待已久的建仔首勝總算出爐。

生涯遭遇水手擁有4勝0敗戰績的王建民,一開賽用花1球,就讓鈴木一朗打出二壘滾地球出局,證明建仔投一朗真的很有心得,隨後他順利封鎖接下來的兩名打者,漂亮用三上三下解決首局,替自己今日先發開啟不錯的氣勢。

二局上,一個94英哩快速球,王建民精采三振掉塞克森(Richie Sexson),迫使下一名打者揮出中外野高飛球出局,最後用最拿手的指叉球三振了吉連(Jose Guillen),又是一個三上三下。到了三局上,建仔繼續穩定的投球,讓水手打線一籌莫展,只用31球,就以無安打、兩K完美解決水手首輪九個打席。

洋基的打線在三局下總算提供王建民一些火力支援,阿布雷尤(Bobby Abreu)的中外野高飛犧牲打,替洋基先馳得點,不過無人出局、滿壘的大好得分情況,洋基卻僅得1分收場,其實還算蠻可惜的。

四局上半,鈴木一朗的投手強襲球打中王建民的左腳,但建仔仍趕緊把球撿起,把一朗封殺在一壘前,原本教練團還趨前關心一下建仔的腳,可是他仍穩健解決下兩名打者,還三振了伊邦奈茲(Raul Ibanez),甚至五局上仍讓水手打線完全熄火,繼續保持無安打的優異演出。

NEW YORK -- Chien-Ming Wang took a seat at the far end of the Yankees' bench for the sixth inning, a white towel draped over his right arm and a bronze plaque of longtime clubhouse man Pete Sheehy serving as his only company.
The march toward perfection, as Wang learned in the Yankees' 8-1 victory on Saturday, can become a lonely path.

"I don't know why everybody [wouldn't] talk to me," Wang said.

Wang's bid to become just the third Yankees pitcher to throw a perfect game in the regular season ended in the eighth inning, as the Mariners' Ben Broussard -- the 23rd Seattle hitter of the game -- slugged a hanging changeup for a solo home run.

"I tried to throw it low. I got it higher," Wang said.

王建民今天再度幫助洋基贏球,不僅自己拿下全大聯盟最多的19勝,同時也打破2000年南韓投手朴贊浩,所創下大聯盟亞洲投手單季勝投紀錄,另外王建民也成為近10年來大聯盟單季滾地球出局數第二多的選手,一個才晉升大聯盟第2年的投手,就能繳出這樣的成績單,難怪王建民旋風不僅橫掃台灣,也讓越來越多的美國人喜歡這位台灣之光。到底王建民在今年例行賽寫下哪些輝煌的紀錄?我們一起來看一看。
當然,今天拿下第19勝,至少讓他已經追上雙城隊的王牌投手Johan Santana,並列大聯盟勝投王,不過,Santana可能還有一次出賽的機會,如果拿下勝投的話,就可以獨居勝投王寶座,另外王建民今天也打破南韓投手朴贊浩在2000年於道奇隊所創下的單季亞洲投手最多勝投18勝的紀錄,這也是相當難能可貴的成績,而王建民今天對金鶯對製造了11個滾地球出局數,總計今年有407個,僅次於2003年藍鳥隊投手Roy Halladay所創下的408個滾地球出局數,實在相當可惜。


結算王建民今年例行賽成績,他不僅是洋基隊的勝投王,投球局數218局也是最多,勝率也是最高的先發投手,2006年洋基隊的功勞簿上,王建民絕對要劃下一筆。

SEATTLE -- Felix Hernandez has gotten a lot of attention as one of the American League's premier young pitchers, but Chien-Ming Wang showed his counterpart on Wednesday why he may be the class of the league when it comes to sophomore hurlers.
Wang held the Mariners to two runs over seven innings, while the Yankees battered Hernandez for seven runs in just 3 2/3 innings, taking a 9-2 win over Seattle.

Wang earned his team-leading 15th victory of the season, tying Detroit's Justin Verlander and Minnesota's Johan Santana for second in the AL, one behind Toronto's Roy Halladay. Wang won for the seventh time in his last eight decisions.

"I don't think we could have expected this," manager Joe Torre said. "You like those happy surprises; the pleasant surprises."

Robinson Cano drove in three runs for the Yankees, while Johnny Damon, Jason Giambi and Jorge Posada each drove in a pair.

The victory, New York's sixth win in seven games on its current road trip, kept the Yankees 6 1/2 games ahead of the Red Sox in the American League East.
