The pitching match-up is Wang vs Mays.

Yanks grab the early lead as Giambi hits a three run HR in the bottom of the first.

UPDATE:

Yanks come from behind and win on Jeter's three run HR in the bottom of the eighth, 9-7. Bernie got a big hit in the eighth to drive in a run and make up for being doubled off second with the bases loaded in the sixth on a bloop by Sheffield to end a major threat. Wang's pitches began to stay up and he got lit up again in the fourth for his second bad outing in a row. Dump Sturtze now!

Here's the BOXSCORE
Anyone notice John Flaherty interview Jeter after the game? He looked good in his fancy suit and shiny tie.
