Tiger tosses a gem

July 28, 2006: N.Y. Yankees 6, Tampa Bay 0

Chien-Ming Wang gave the Yanks and their exhausted bullpen exactly what they needed: a complete game shutout. A very relaxing game, that never seemed in doubt. The only tension was whether Wang would pitch a no-hitter (no), and whether Torre would let him go for the complete game (yes). A much sweeter ending than Wang's last complete game, that's for sure.

Bubba came in in the top of the 8th, as a defensive replacement for Bernie in RF. He didn't get any at bats, and didn't have to field any balls, either, but it's nice to see Joe trusts him, at least on D.
