This article reports that the Curse of the Bambino is part of New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox lore. Whether it is real or not, the Yankees will need more than phantoms to continue their post-season dominance over a Boston team that earnestly believes they are better than the Yankees this time around. The Yankees drew first blood in the first game of the ALCS, battering Curt Schilling for six runs and six hits in three innings. Mike Mussina had sat down 19 straight batters, pitching six scoreless, no-hit innings. He then trotted out to centerfield and watched baseball's best fireman save the game for Mussina when he got Bill Mueller to hit into a game-ending double play that shut down the surging Red Sox.
