The yankees wouldn't say it, but they really needed this win, A.J. Burnett needed to step up, and he did. Here are some notes from the game...
-A.J. Burnett wasn't lights out, but he was solid and gave the Yankees just what they needed, 5.1 innings, 2 runs, 6 Ks... looks good to me.
-That double in the 9th last night may have sparked something in Mark Teixeira, he had 2 hits today including a homerun.
-Robbie Cano 2.0(2-point-oh) went 3-4 with a 2 run homerun AND a walk... how about that?
-Nick Swisher should start in right field until he proves he doesn't deserve the spot, seriously... the guy had an outstanding day, 3-5... a clutch 2 run homerun and ended the day with 5 RBIs.
-The Yankees bullpen was lights out today, 3.2 IP 0 hits 0 walks, 6 strikeouts.
-Overall, great day for the Yankees... now we get to look forward to Sidney Ponson tomorrow for the Royals...that should be funn.
