YANKEES LEAD SERIES, 2-0
Lieber Tucks In Red Sox for the Night

It was the greatest moment of his career, and Jon Lieber was still in a hurry. There were 56,136 fans standing for him and roaring, their voices strident, somehow, after screaming about Pedro Martínez's paternity for most of the night.
Lieber must have heard them, standing there on the mound as Joe Torre came to take him out in the top of the eighth inning. But he hustled off the field, jogging, efficient until the end.
"Since I was a boy, when I get taken out of a game, I try to get on and off the field, I don't know why," Lieber said. "I'm not going to say I'm deaf to the whole situation, but you can hear what's going on."
Lieber deserved the ovation. While Martínez slogged through six innings at Yankee Stadium, Lieber subdued the mighty offense of the Boston Red Sox, leading the Yankees to a 3-1 victory in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series.
The Yankees lead the best-of-seven-game series, two games to none, after shelling Curt Schilling on Tuesday and handling Martínez last night.
"These two games were huge, especially tonight," Torre, the Yankees' manager, said. "Curt didn't have his best stuff yesterday, but Pedro was Pedro. To beat him when he had stuff like this, it really gives us a lot of confidence."
