Good night from Fenway Park

The Yankees finish the season series with the Red Sox 10-8 with wins in eight of the last 10 games. That could be significant if the teams meet again next month. Would that surprise anybody?

The Yankees were talking about a few main topics after the game: Roger Clemens and his grit, Derek Jeter’s ability to rise to the moment, Joba Chamberlain’s curveball and the defensive clinic Doug Mientkiewicz put on at first base.

Clemens on Jeter: “He’s one of the reasons I got back up off the couch.”

Joba (2-0) got the win but it was Clemens who set the tone with six brilliant innings. I asked Jeter if the Rocket gave them more than they expected. “What else could he have done? He loves big games,” Jeter said.

The Yankees return home for a seven-game homestand that starts tomorrow night. They’ll be a tired bunch. But every game is big with the Tigers hanging in behind them.

Thanks for all the participation. I’ll catch you tomorrow.
