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, the Yankees won a nail-bitter yesterday, but what I'm really happy about is that Ivan Nova, the rookie who had only one Major League start before the game. He went 5 and 2/3 (Girardi took him out to early again) while striking out 7 and only giving up 5 hits. He seems to fear nothing, saying that pitching in the Major Leagues is the same baseball that he played in Scranton, and he dominated there. Ivan seems like a great option for the Yankees in the postseason, and you have to believe Joe Girardi would have him in the playoff rotation.
The Bombers must've taken some time off yesterday, only scoring 2 runs, with Marcus Thames (he's been great this series, hitting 4 home runs)...

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)...
