HOUSTON (AP) - Chien-Ming Wang pitched five scoreless innings
before hurting his right foot running the bases, and Alex Rodriguez
hit a three-run homer in the New York Yankees' 13-0 win over the
Houston Astros on Sunday.
Wang (8-2) pulled up as he rounded third on Derek Jeter's
two-run single during the Yankees' eight-run sixth inning. He
hopped the rest of the way home and pointed to his right foot after
scoring. A trainer rushed from the dugout to check on him and Wang
was helped off the field.
Getting a rare chance to hit against an NL team, Wang had
reached base on a bunt that turned into a fielder's choice.
