Rafael Soriano continues to excel in filling the biggest shoes imaginable. The Yankees substitute closer earned his first four-out save since August 2007 tonight as the Yanks won the opener of a four-game weekend series at Fenway Park. Signing a big free agent deal with New York before the 2011 season, he had an up-and-down first year in pinstripes.
(Below) Let's not overlook Mark Teixeira's night. His two-RBI single in the first inning was big. His two-RBI triple in the 7th was even bigger, as it gave the Yanks the lead for keeps en route to a 10 - 8 Fenway victory.
