Yanks Take GRAND Finale At Fenway

The Yankees beat the Red Sox on the strength of Curtis Granderson's 10th inning Home Run off of Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon. The Yanks win the opening series of the season and first series with Boston. It's an impressive series win considering the Yanks lost on opening night.

Andy Pettitte was back to his old ways as he showed no ill effects of being 37 years old and having a "weird" spring training. He pitched 6 solid innings giving up 1 run and 7 hits. Sunday night's goat Chan Ho Park got back in stride as he pitched 3 scoreless innings of relief to earn the win.

Granderson is quickly earning his pinstripes. His HR in the 1oth was his 2nd of the series and put the Yanks ahead for good as Mariano Rivera came in for the save. Granderson hasn't looked particularly good against the lefties he's facedso far, but no Yankee fan will complain at this point.

Last year, the Yanks lost their first 8 games of the season to Boston but have since won 11 of the last 13.

The defending World Champs prove why they won it all last year, as the never say die attitude of the team hasn't left. The Yanks leave Boston on a high note. It was an intense series and they came out on top. It's nice to see them bounce back after a mini-collapse on Sunday night.

So far so good for Granderson and the Yanks. Damon who? Yes, it's only 3 games into the season but it was the Red Sox they beat...wheter it's April or October..winning in Beantown is always sweet!

C800 Asks You: It's only the first series of the season but does this set the tempo for both teams going forward or should we just see this series as just a regular 3 game series? Is Granderson going to be a big player in the Bronx or did he just have a good 3 game strecth? Your thoughts? Share them!
