Boston, Massachusetts (WiredPRNews.com) — The Yankees have tried their best to find the new Josh Beckett for five years since he left the team in the last game of the World Series. The Yankees have always desired a leading beginner in order to match the opponent team’s champion.
Beckett faced Joba Chamberlain at Fenway Park. Beckett responded with the top of his main league starts. Chamberlain played seven innings, striking nine and allowing only three hits. Chamberlain got the victory of 1-0 against the Boston Red Sox. This was the seventh triumph faced by the Yankees in a row and was not the only reason to cheer.
At the beginning of the game, the Yankees came to an agreement with the Pittsburgh Pirates in order to acquire outfielder, Xavier Nady and reliever Damaso Marte for four smaller leagues while medical result approvals were pending. This deal strengthened the lineup and the bullpen at a time when the Yankees were surging.
The Yankees seven game victory is the longest winning streak since 1947. The Yankees have a lot of ground to cover in order to be considered for the playoff race but this latest victory has pulled the team within two of Boston for the wild card lead of the American Baseball League.
The Yankees made their victory possible on the day when David Ortiz, the slugger from Boston, returned after recovering from a wrist injury and missed 45 games.
As Chamberlain had some problems with the opponent Youkilis last August, he brushed his opponent twice, throwing him earlier this month. Although Youkilis growled at Chamberlain, he could not avenge himself. After the order was resorted, Chamberlain went on with the business of leading the Red Sox.
