When I heard A.J. Burnett was pitching, I was scared.html_removedhtml_removed
But the Yanks showed me there was no need to worry. They scored 4 runs, (no double-digit scores today) and Burnett pitched well. He went 6 innings, struck out a season-high tying 8 batters, and only gave up 3 earned runs. Not great, but good enough.

Well well well, what can I say? The night after Jose Bautista hit 2 home runs and absolutely showed off; mocking Cervelli by fist pumping; and then came at Nova with a bat, thus causing a near brawl; the Yankees repaid him. How, you ask? They did so by scoring 11 runs on 17 hits and keeping the homer happy Blue Jays, homerless.
Mark Teixeira started the scoring by having an RBI single in the first, but he wasn't over. After Nunez got an RBI groundout to score Jorge Posada, Teixeira came up again and he went DEEP to left to make the score 3-0 Yanks. Robinson Cano followed up with a walk, bringing up Thames; who would also hit a home run to left, where 4 of the 5 Yankees bombs went....

Okay, okay, so we lost, and so what that Jose Bautista sure looked like he was trying to show us up, and what if we lost the AL East lead last night; I've got answers to all of that. We will win this series, Bautista is on my fantasy team and anyway the Blue Jays are in 4th place, there not making the playoffs anytime soon; and we will at the end of the year, win the division. So don't panic Yankees fans.

Look at the picture, have you ever seen that man holding the ball?

Well, it seems the Yankees just love to mock me. I wrote about how the Yankees bullpen was being as good as ever, and then the next day they give up a run. I wrote how the yankees offense had come back, and then they score 9 runs, making me have to think long and hard about a title for my next post; and yesterday, they scored 11 runs, 11! That meant I had to think of yet another title about how to describe the offense; with 9 of the runs coming in the 6th! Unbelivable. Well, on to what actually happened in the game; it started with yet another home run by Miguel Cabrera, which was his 4th this series and 31st overall this season. However, Phil Hughes calmed down giving up a hit in...

Its about time the Yankees got a win, I was getting a little worried there, but, no need to, because we have our offense back. And doesn't the game seem so much better when you see this,
Or when you see this,
Rather than this, I know I definitely do, first, let's talk about the offense. Everyone in the lineup had a hit except Teixeira(and there's nothing to be worried about with him, he's done with his slump's for the year) and both Curtis Granderson, who has been on fire of late, and Robinson Cano had solo home runs. To open up the game, Austin Jackson, the former Yankees top prospect, hit a home run in the first at-bat...

Well, maybe we should've expected this, going against a pitcher we never faced before, what else to expect but a shutout by the pitcher. And then Valverde comes in, whadya know? We score a run and have the bases loaded with Jeet up. Then this happens. I know, it looks promising, but not even the speedy combo of Gardner and Jeter can stop a double play. Max Scherzer, the Tigers pitcher who kept the Yankees to two hits through 6 innings with 6 strikeouts, was "dominant." He has been good for the Tigers lately, look at his last 5 starts. Pretty good, if I do say so myself; but let's focus on Javier Vasquez's start.

Well, the yanks game could be described by one word: rain. There were two rain delays that amounted up to a total of 2 hours and 41 minutes. Dustin Moseley, the yankees starting pitcher, didn't do so well. He went 4 and 1/3 while giving up 8 hits and 4 runs. Now, was some of this due to the rain? I don't think so, seeing that he gave up the runs in the second inning, before the rain even came, and from there on didn't give up a run; but, since there was a rain delay for so long, it was the cause for Joe Girardi to pull him out of the game after the longer delay of the two.

At a time, I thought the Yanks were going to get swept. I know, I know, WHAT was I thinking. Thank goodness that these are the New York Yankees, who can't get swept by a team from Texas; buuuuuuuut, they were facing Cliff Lee. As I wondered how I could try to make up for the loss, it came to me, "They were facing Cliff Lee! They were facing Cliff Lee!" I instantly had an excuse. However, it turned out the Bombers didn't need an excuse as they got 8 hits and 4 runs off Lee, but the Rangers ace did have 11 strikeouts against the Yankees. He left with a 6-4 lead, but they Yankees bullpen was stellar and frankly, the Rangers wasn't. Texas had 6 relievers follow Lee, with Frank Francisco (1)...
