Yankees counting on Clemens to save season
NEW YORK -- The details of the night of Oct. 17, 2003, otherwise known as Game 7 of the American League Championship Series between the Red Sox and Yankees, remain seared into baseball consciousness and do not require much recap: Grady Little took a chance with Pedro Martinez in a memorable eighth inning, a move that would cost him his job. Martinez, the legend who nevertheless could not be trusted by himself to vanquish the Yankees, would be forced to share the stage with Curt Schilling the next year, with championship results.
The only thing you have to concentrate on is winning [Sunday]. I mean, we need to win one game just to get the momentum switched around a little bit.
--Yankees manager Joe Torre
