Straight sets 

Red Sox over Yankees 7-6, 7-5, 7-6.

I actually missed the ending of the first game; I shut it off with the Sox down four runs in the top of the eighth. Oh well.

A sweep is always nice, but I'm unhappy that Boston only outscored NY 21-17 with the Yankees trotting out Andy Pettitte and two rooks versus Boston's top three starters. Beckett and Matsuzaka both had subpar performances. Schilling got lit up as well, but I really don't expect too much more from him -- he's lost a lot on his fastball, and his newfound conversion to a "pitching to contact" style is clearly still a work in progress.
