A.J. Burnett pitched the type of game Yankees fans hope, and know, he can pitch every time he's on the mound. Burnett threw eight innings, giving up only one earned run, while walking two, and striking out two.
Sadly, that was not enough, as Burnett received his first April loss as a Yankee.
Phil Humber played a game of "anything you can do i can do better" with Burnett, and won in the process. Humber no-hit the Yankees through six and a third innings, until Alex Rodriguez hit a single up the middle. That would be the only hit Humber gave up the entire night.
The offense simply did not show up, and the team will have to show up tomorrow hoping to avoid their first two game losing streak of the season.
