Derek Jeter Gets it Done In Game One of ALDS

by @ 2:04 am. Filed under 2006 ALDS

One down, two to go.  Chien-Ming Wang was hardly spectacular, but with this lineup, all he needed to do was pitch fairly.  That’s what he did and that’s why he got the win.

Derek Jeter was a man on a mission.  He went five for five and scored three times.  He also started a very nice double play in the third inning to stop the first Tigers surge.  Had that double play not been converted, the Tigers would have scored an early run and we might have had a much different game then we did.

Bobby Abreu was another big hitter.  He drove in four runs with a single and a double.  Johnny Damon scored twice and Jason Giambi of all people stole a base and hit a homerun in the same game.

Tonight it’s Mike Mussina vs. rookie phenom Justin Verlander.  Let’s make it 2-0 and then finish things up on Friday.
