The Yankees had a lead with A.J. Burnett on the mound, but manager Joe Girardi got greedy and left him in too long as the Rangers eventually broke the game open for a 10-3 victory at Yankee Stadium.

Here are some highlights:

  • Burnett held the Rangers to two runs over five innings, but gave up a three-run shot to Bengie Molina in the sixth that put the Yankees behind 5-3.
  • Mark Teixeira seriously injured his groin running to first base. He’s likely out for the remainder of the playoffs no matter how long the Yankees go.

The Yankees have a tall order ahead of them. They have to win the next three games, and they have to face Cliff Lee again in Game 7, if it gets that far.
