Yanks' late scoring leads to victory over 'Stros

The Yankees were down one after one inning, but came back and won thanks to a two-run rally in the seventh.  They tacked on two more runs in the ninth for a 4-1 victory.

Chien-Ming Wang gave up the early run, but was brilliant after that in his five-inning performance.  The Yanks used four pitchers for an inning each to preserve the victory.  Full box score here.

Austin Jackson came in as a pinch runner for Jose Molina in the seventh, stole a base, and scored.  He singled in his next at bat in the ninth and scored again.  

Good signs coming from my man Jackson.  I really think he'll see the majors a little bit this season, and could be starting as early as 2010.
