Game Recap: A.J. looks like an ace

So, I think we can all see now why our New York Yankees were so thrilled to get A.J. Burnett during the off-season.

Major 'kudos' to Burnett for eight tremendous innings in tonight's 7-2 victory.

It was also nice to see the Yanks capitalize on a couple of key situations late in the game after Tampa Bay had tied the score at 2-2.

'Kudos' also to Brett Gardner for driving two balls over outfielder's heads, to Nick Swisher for homering after a brushback pitch and to Derek Jeter for his victory-sealing three-run homer.

A 'Wet Willie' to Tampa's Matt Garza for throwing one at Swisher's head.
