    Yankees Win 11-5 To Start Home Series Against A’s 

    AP Photo

    This was one of those games that once the offense got going, I knew the outcome was never in doubt so I was doing school work while watching. The game summary is courtesy of our friend Chad Jennings at Lohud.

    Facing an unlikely Cy Young contender, the Yankees offense went to work early and often tonight, beating the Athletics 11-5 to kick start a home stand that could provide an opportunity to finally break a tie atop the American League East. Trevor Cahill, second in the AL in ERA, allowed eight earned runs in four innings. Mark Teixeira and Robinson Cano each had three hits off him — including back-to-back home runs — and it was Marcus Thames who went deep off the A’s bullpen for his sixth home run in as many games.

    Yankees Win 2-1 Take Series From The Ozzies

    Nova may mean new in Portuguese, but Ivan Nova is definitely not pitching like a rookie. Here’s his line today:  one run and five hits with seven strikeouts and one walk in 5 2-3 innings. Marcus Thames homered again — he’s gone deep in four straight starts — and Francisco Cervelli had four hits, including a double that led to the winning run. Nice win.

    Yankees 12 Ozzies 9

    CC had to grind out this game for his 18th win and ride the offense to a 12-9 Yankees win. Eduardo Nuñez hit his first MLB home run and went 3 for 4. Marcus hit 2 home runs and Swish hit another today. Yanks go for the series win behind Ivan Nova on Sunday.

    WTF!! Albert Pujols Honored At Beck Rally? 

    This takes Pujols down a few notches in my estimation. LaRussa has always been a jackass so it’s no surprise for him to be there. Think maybe he was invited because of his Latin ancestry? The only people of color at this event were on stage.

    Yankees 11 Jays 5

    Too lazy to post tonight, so here is the Yahoo feed:

    Curtis Granderson hit a three-run homer, Marcus Thames added a two-run drive and three other Yankees hit solo blasts as New York pounded the Toronto Blue Jays 11-5.

    “We have power in our lineup and we had production from a lot of people tonight,” manager Joe Girardi said.

    Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada and Mark Teixeira also connected as the Yankees won for the sixth time in eight games.

    “We came swinging today,” Posada said. “We got a lot of good pitches to hit and we didn’t miss them.”

    Teixeira and Posada both went 4 for 5 with two RBIs, while Thames and Granderson both had three hits. New York’s 17 hits were one shy of its season high.

    Ivan Nova? Good. José Bautista? Punk-Ass. 

    I’m going to dwell on the positives. Nova pitched a hell of a game and didn’t get rattled with bases loaded and no outs in the first inning. Then he didn’t back down when Bautista tried to bait him. The pitch was a purpose pitch. It was hard and tight. Freaking baseball. Then that slow dance around the bases after his HR against Robertson? In the words of Kurt Russell as Jack Burton in “Big Trouble In Little China”…

    Yankees Win 10-0 Take Series Against Ichiros 

    Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images

    Robinson Cano looks as comfortable in the cleanup spot as CC Sabathia does on the Yankee Stadium mound.

    Cano hit a grand slam and drove in a career-high six runs, Sabathia extended his home winning streak to 15 decisions and the New York Yankees routed the Seattle Mariners 10-0 on a rain-slicked field Sunday.

    Austin Kearns and Jorge Posada also homered for the Yankees, who notched another win minus slugger Alex Rodriguez. New York is a confounding 12-0 this season without the three-time MVP, placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left calf.

    Yankees 9 Ichiros 5

    As soon as Ichiro led off with a home run on the first pitch of the game against Javy, I thought… here we go again! Then Russell Branyan hits a home run in the upper deck in right field! Then another home run for Ichiro! We tied it but Javy is gone after three innings! Well, enough with the exclamation points but we ended up piling it on later and the bullpen was great in handing it off to CC tomorrow. Great story with newly called up Eduardo Nuñez getting his first hit, RBI and run scored. That look and the kiss for the ball was priceless. A high energy kid that will be getting a good look with A-Rod going on the DL for that calf strain. Good win.
