Yankees 6, A-Rod 5, A's 1

A-Rod was very, very good today in the Yankees 6-1 win, launching home runs 596 (grand slam, again) and 597 (solo shot) and providing all of the offense the Yankees would need.  Almost equally good was C.C. Sabathia, throwing 7.2 dominant innings, allowing 1 run and striking out 10.  David Robertson pitched very well to finish out the game.
