Chien-Ming Wang,  RHP  (15-6,  3.95)

After losing 5 of 6 to the BoSox to begin the season series, the Yanks have come back to win 6 of 8 and tie the series at 7-7.

Wang has struggled in his career against the Red Sox (4-4, 4.78 ERA in 9 starts).  He is 2-2, 3.72 ERA against RSN at Yankee Stadium. has decent but not great regular season success against the Yanks (7-6, 4.84 ERA in 22 games).  Like his fellow starters, he has been pounded by the Yankee offense this season (0-1, 7.00 ERA in 3 starts).

Both Jorge Posada and Bobby Abreu are hitting .378 (14-37) against, while Robinson Cano is hitting .360 (9-25) against him.

On the other side, David Ortiz is hitting a PlayStation-like .500 (12-24, 2 2B, 2 HR) against Wang.  Good thing Manny is OUT again since his numbers are even better (.591, 13-22, 2 HR).
