Sox-Yanks Game 1 Postgame: Awesome.


In a game that featured seven double plays, the real twin killing came from two guys: Jason Bay (2-run HR) and Kevin Youkilis (Game-ending, extra-inning HR) destroying the Yankee's chances at what looked like an easy win for them.

Lester was not sharp after the 1st inning, Joba wasn't sharp either but got bailed out by 4 GIDPs. Relief work was unimpressive for the Sox. Left-handed batters not named Ellsbury were godawful. None of that matters though. This game is an instant classic.

It took an improbable comeback, but the win streak is now at 8 games. And the Sox are hungry for more.
