Wang overpowering
Photos
Yankees 4, Red Sox 1
Chien-Ming Wang needed just 93 pitches to beat Boston on Friday. (AP)
Chien-Ming Wang lost his bid for a no-hitter in the fifth inning, but that hardly slowed him down. Wang faced one over the minimum until allowing an infield single in the ninth on his way to a complete-game masterpiece in the first of 18 between the Yankees and Red Sox.
