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.

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, 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)...
