Joba silences Red Sox bats

Seven innings, three hits, nine strikeouts, no walks. That was Joba Chamberlain's line against the Boston Red Sox in his first career start at Fenway Park. The Yankees defeated Boston 1-0 to win their seventh in a row. Chamberlain won his second game as a starter as well.

The Yankees recorded nine hits but left seven runners on base. Hopefully the acquisition of Xavier Nady can give the lineup a boost.

After Chamberlain needed 103 pitches to get through a career-high seven innings, Kyle Farnsworth came in and put two runners on base before being taken out. Mariano Rivera restored order, recording five outs for his 26th save of the season.

Robinson Cano went 1-for-4, extending his hitting streak to seven games but snapping his six-game multi-hit game streak.

Andy Pettitte and Tim Wakefield will start tomorrow afternoon at 4:00.
