Credit should go to A.J. Burnett, who struggled with his command but was just effective enough to throw a quality start (6 ip, 2 er). The two runs he allowed were all scored in the fourth, on three doubles by The Killer J's: Justin Morneau, Jim Thome and Jason Kubel.
He looked great finishing out his game in the fifth and sixth innings, retiring eight of the final nine batters he faced. A.J. threw his changeup more often and effectively than I can ever remember it.
Hopefully Mark Teixeira is okay after taking a pitch off the knee in his first AB. He didn't look good in any ABs after that.
Tell me Danny Valencia's deep flyball to left-field off Mo Rivera didn't scare you.
Derek Jeter had two hits (including his first extra-base hit of the season), and is now within 69 of 3000.
Andruw Jones had a great AB in 4th, driving in the tying run with a double. (And Marcus Thames never makes that sliding catch Jones made in the sixth.)
The Yankees showed good situational hitting: Swisher hit a sac-fly to plate the first run, then Russell Martin barely scraped the ball but got enough to score Robbie Cano from third.
The run Joba allowed was more bad luck than him getting hit hard: HBP, SB, throwing error, RBI groundout.
Rafa Soriano pitch the eighth inning, because, after all, he's "the eighth inning guy," and escaped unscathed despite tossing a few meatballs over the heart of the plate to Morneau and Thome. Fortunately, his velocity (93-94 MPH) was good enough for him get away with it.
Play of the Game: Andruw's aforementioned game-tying double in the fourth (+17%).
