NEW YORK - Bernie Williams hit the game-winning homer off Rod Beck to lift the New York Yankees to
a 4-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series
Wednesday night. In the first postseason game ever between the traditional rivals, the Yankees won their
11th straight postseason game. Boston jumped out to a 3-0 lead after Jose Offerman's RBI infield single in the second, but Brosius hit a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning off surprise starter Kent
Mercker and Jeter tied the game in the seventh with an RBI single off Derek Lowe. Brosius crashed into catcher Jason Varitek, who had plenty of time to corral the ball but couldn't handle the one-hop throw from right-fielder Trot Nixon. In the top of the 10th, the Yankees' Chuck Knoblauch allowed
Brosius' throw from third on John Valentin's grounder to pop out of the webbing of his glove, but second-base umpire Rick Reed blew the call, deciding Knoblauch was transferring the ball to his throwing hand and calling Offerman out on a force. Boston's Daubach then hit into an inning-ending
double play.  - USA Today
