After another hard-luck start for Phil Hughes ended in the bottom of the fifth, the Yanks found themselves in a 4-0 hole. Mark Teixeira brought them all the way back with 4 RBI spread over two at bats. The Wanger hung three zeroes on the board to get the game to the ninth tied. Then things took a tragic turn for the Bombers.
How did CC Sabathia's first start in Cleveland against the Indians work out? Well, the Yanks were up 7-0 before Cleveland scratched out their first hit. When all was said and done, even Jose Veras couldn't blow the lead he was handed. The Yanks won going away, 10-5.
Andy Pettitte went five serviceable innings before leaving with a stiff back, Alfredo Aceves picked up the slack, pitching three innings of one-hit relief and Derek Jeter singled twice and drove in a run as the Yanks downed the Indians 3-1 in Cleveland.
A.J. Burnett went six uncomfortable but shutout innings, Hideki Matsui belted two homers and Derek Jeter smoked three hits and walked twice as the Yanks whipped the Rangers 9-2 at the Ballpark in Arlington.
Chris Davis cracked two homers, Marlon Byrd drove in a pair of runs and the bullpen foursome of Jason Jennings, C.J. Wilson, Darren O'Day and Frank Francisco pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings as the Rangers subdued the Yanks 7-3 in Texas.
Phil Hughes is definitely born again hard. Following up his 9K performance, today he cruised through 8 shutout innings, allowing only 3 hits 1 walk and striking out 6. The Yanks didn't need a masterful performance to secure this 11-1 win, but hey, they'll take it.
