Pregame concerns: They say momentum is as good as your next day's starting pitcher. That said, DeSalvo is starting today for the Yankees. In his last start against the White Sox, DeSalvo gave up four runs in 3 1-3 innings. ... Dye hit a home run and had three RBIs against DeSalvo. ... In seven starts against the Yankees, Garland is 2-5 with a 3.42 ERA in 47 1-3 innings. ...

Game updates:

7:28 p.m.:
On a 3-2 count, Jeter gets an early jump and Abreu lines a ball in the gap for a one out double. Jeter scores, 1-0 Yankees.

7:33 p.m.: Rodriguez strikes out, and the ball gets away from Pierzynski. As he is running down the line, the throw from Pierzynski hits Rodriguez. However, he is called out for running outside the baseball. Replays show it was a bad call.

8:05 p.m.: With the bases loaded an no out, Rodriguez fields the ball, steps on third, and pulls Phelps off first base. One run scores, and there are runners at first and second with one out. 1-1 in the bottom of the second.

8:07 p.m.: Ground ball to Phelps. He throws the ball into left field, and a run scores. Jeter is down after being taken out by Crede and second base. He appears to be OK and is staying in the game. 2-1 White Sox.

8:08 p.m.: Iguchi singles to center, scoring Crede. DeSalvo is coming out of the game in favor of Ron Villone. 3-1 White Sox. This game will most likely be a loss, and the bullpen will be burned out for the rest of the series.

8:36 p.m.: Villone has been pitching decently over 1 2-3 innings so far. Still 3-1 White Sox, heading to the top of the fourth.

8:42 p.m.: Phelps has hit into two double plays. Yes, he can hit into them, but he can't complete them in the field.

8:49 p.m.: Two-run home run for Thome. 5-1. I love how we beat the Red Sox two out of three and now this happens tonight. This team is NOT a playoff team.

8:55 p.m.: A Chris "Great" Britton sighting! I didn't even know what number he wore.

9:19 p.m.: Rodriguez, after hitting a one-out double, gets doubled off of second base on a Posasda line out. Going to the bottom of the sixth, 5-1 White Sox. It is getting late early for the Yankees.

9:24 p.m.: Great Britton has retired all eight batters he has faced. Thanks, Joe Torre, for finally using him. They better not send him down when the next move needs to be made.

9:49 p.m.: Great Britton gave up a solo home run to Konerko and was taken out of the game. He pitched a solid three innings before that hiccup. Now, he will probably never be used and be sent down to AAA Scranton/Wilkes Barre.

9:52 p.m.: Yankees go down quietly in the eighth. This is pathetic.

10:02 p.m.: Red Sox fans take notice: Garland's performance tonight warranted a standing ovation. Josh Beckett's performance last night did not.

10:16 p.m.: The Yankees stage a very late comeback, but fall short and lose 6-4.
