Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts
• Summary: Manager Joe Torre and mop-up man Scott Proctor got ejected in separate incidents, and the Yankees held on to beat the Red Sox 9-5 in a testy game.
• Turning point: Jorge Posada belted a three-run double in the fourth inning to cap a six-run rally that broke a 3-3 deadlock.
• Boiling mad: Torre was thrown out in the fifth inning for arguing a caught-stealing call on Bobby Abreu. Then, in the ninth, Proctor brushed back Kevin Youkilis with a head-high fastball. Youkilis made a move toward the mound and both benches emptied but there were no physical clashes at that time.
• Hero: Chien-Ming Wang (4-4) had trouble getting hitters out early but settled down after the third inning and pitched 3 2/3 scoreless frames.
• Goat: Tim Wakefield (5-6) lasted 3 2/3 innings -- the shortest outing for a Red Sox starter this year -- and saw his ERA balloon from 3.36 to 4.24.
• Did you see that?: A few dozen Boston fans near the Yankee dugout pulled on masks of a woman with blonde hair, a reference to the woman photographed with Alex Rodriguez last weekend at a Toronto hotel.-- ESPN.com news services
