One to forget: Awful A.J. allows seven in 10-4 loss to D-Backs

Two outs in, five runs down.

It started off bad and quickly got worse. Burnett served up three homers in the very first inning: a solo shot to Justin Upton, a three-run bomb to Adam LaRoche, and another solo jack to Mark "223 K" Reynolds.

Two strange things: every run the Yankees allowed scored with two outs, and only three D-Backs had ever faced him before (LaRoche, Johnson and Snyder), yet they looked mighty comfortable at the plate. It looked like he was going to cruise through the first until Upton took him deep to center (the dude went 3-3 with a walk, a HBP, two homers, four runs and four RBI).

For as bad as Vazquez was to start the year, with another good start on Wednesday, he'll lower his ERA (5.01) below Burnett's (4.83). Who woulda thunk that on May 4th, when Javy's ERA was 9.83 ERA and Burnett's was 1.99?

The closest the Yanks got was 7-3 in the sixth after RBI's by A-Rod and Posada.

Brett Gardner went 4-4, continuing his breakout season and raising his average to .324, second highest on the team.

Play of the Game: LaRoche's three-run longball in the first that put Arizona up 4-0.

Comment of the Game: please rec your favorite comments and I'll go back and look through them on Tuesday.

Update - this has to go to lololol, for one of the funniest photos I've seen here. Great work!
