Here’s what matters today: Chien-Ming Wang pitched two innings and his right foot felt fine. Everything else is window dressing.

The Yankees led 5-2 when the starters came out. The game finished in a 5-5 tie. George Kontos allowed three runs and there was some sloppy defense.

Wang’s sinker was effective — “Just like last year before he got hurt,” Jose Molina said. — and he was able to cover first base without any issue.

“I was excited to be pitching,” said Wang, who no longer considers the injury anything to worry about. “My sinker was a little up. … That is normal (for this time of the year).”
