Game 30: Going for the Sweep (Again!)

New, comments

Why does it feel like everytime I do a Sunday game thread the Yankees are aiming for the sweep? Should be an interesting contest, as A.J. Burnett aims for his fifth win of the season. Burnett struggled at Fenway last year, going 0-2 with a 14.21 ERA. In his lone start at Fenway this year he pitched 5 innings and gave up three earned runs in a no decision. Burnett will face off against Jon Lester. Here's the matchup and the lineups:

W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2010 - A.J. Burnett 4-0 6 6 0 0 0 0 40.2 36 11 9 1 11 28 1.99 1.16
