This starts in the fifth inning with the Yankees up 6-1.
UPDATE, 8:52 p.m.: Michael Bowden, called up today, is called in to pitch for Boston. Maybe the Yankees can get Marte’s feet wet later on.
UPDATE, 8:55 p.m.: Wow, 9-1 in the fifth inning as Matsui drills one into the bullpen. The line for Penny:
4 10 8 8 1 4.
That vaunted Red Sox pitching depth didn’t play out, did it?
UPDATE, 9:00 p.m.: Cano doubled with RISP. That’s it, I’m declaring this game over.
UPDATE, 9:06 p.m.: Now it’s 11-1. Yankees have outscored the Red Sox 36-9 in the last five games.

UPDATE, 9:20 p.m.: Francona just pinch hit for Drew. They’re waving the white flag.
UPDATE, 9:36 p.m.: This was one of the guys Boston wouldn’t trade?
UPDATE, 9:41 p.m.: That rotten Jeter. He’s 3 for 4 with three scored and two RBI. I’m tired of these selfish antics.
Bowden is getting a Code Red here. Welcome back to the big leagues, son.
UPDATE, 9:51 p.m.: Next time you wonder why Hinske doesn’t play third, remember that he can’t play left field.
UPDATE, 9:59 p.m.: Brian Bruney = untrustworthy.
Pettitte needed to give them a lot more than five innings. Man, this is ugly baseball.
UPDATE, 10:01 p.m.: Here’s the problem, they could need Hughes, Coke and maybe even Mo to finish this off. That could change how the rest of the weekend plays out.
UPDATE, 10:08 p.m.: OK, I need to finish up my newspaper story. Play nice. I’ll be back postgame with reaction.
