with 6 to play and evened the series with the Sox at 9-9.  After spotting Boston the first 8 the Yanks roared back to take 9 of the next 10.

Andy Pettitte (14-7) pitched well enough again, Melky hit a solo shot to get the score to 2-1 and then Matsui got a big 2-run single in the sixth to take the lead.  Tex added his 38th homer in the 8th for some insurance.
