Yankees 4, Red Sox 3
So it was the Red Sox' game, 3-1, the division would be tied, Kuroda would be summoned on Wednesday night to save the day, a solid outing by Phelps and the bullpen would be wasted . . . And then, just like that, it was the bottom of the ninth. The red Sox realized they were at war. And Raul Ibanez was not on their side. Ibanez: two-run homer to tie in the ninth, RBI single in the 12th to win it. The Yankees are now 1-58 when trailing after eight. One up and one to go. Lying dormie. Best game of the season? It's not even close.
