 A.J. Burnett didn’t show any signs of slowing down tonight. He has been nothing short of stellar over his last 10 starts. Sure, he had a bad start every once in a while over that span, but for the most part he was filthy.

He didn’t disappoint fans tonight, as he pitched 7 solid innings, allowing one run, but it was unearned.  His line was W, 7IP 2H 1R 0ER 2BB 5K. His season record moves to (W-L) 10-4 and his ERA lowers to 3.53.

Albaladejo came on in the 8th inning. He gave up 2ER and the game became close again. He struggled to get two outs and was eventually pulled for David Robertson. Robertson recorded the last 4 outs of the game, but he surrendered one run in the process.

The Yankees offense came out slugging late in this game. In total, the Bombers collected 15 hits, drew 7 walks, and knocked in 11 runs. Derek Jeter went 3-for-5 and picked up 2 runs. The team belted four homeruns on the game. Swisher hit two homeruns, Damon hit his 200th homer of his career, and Cano hit one as well.
