    CC Gets To 19 Wins, Yankees Sweep Away A’s 5-0 

    Ap Photo

    Here’s the game summary from Sam Borden and ours friend at LoHud.

    On a hot, steamy day in the Bronx, CC Sabathia was dominant (again) and the Yankees beat the A’s (again) to finish off a four-game series sweep.

    Sabathia, who allowed just one hit over eight shutout innings, is now only one win away from the first 20-win season of his career. Curtis Granderson hit two homers (after coming off the bench to replace Nick Swisher) and Jorge Posada added a shot of his own to push the Yankees to the 5-0 victory.

    Yanks Win Fifth In A Row 4-3 Over A’s 

    AP Photo

    Here’s the game summary from Sam Borden and ours friend at LoHud.

    A few hours after getting a good report from Andy Pettitte, the Yankees got another round of positive news on their pitchers as A.J. Burnett broke out of his latest funk. Burnett allowed three runs in six innings to earn his first victory since July 28, and the Yankees beat the A’s, 4-3.

    Mark Teixeira drove in three to provide most of the offense on the night, while Derek Jeter singled and scored twice. Joba Chamberlain, Boone Logan, Kerry Wood and – of course – Mariano Rivera got the final nine outs as the Yankees won their fifth straight.

    Yankees 9 A’s 3

    I have great respect for the Yankees beat writers. It’s hard coming up with something worthwhile to read everyday. I have been remiss lately and today I will again use Chad Jennings’ post from our friends at LoHud.

    Phil Hughes was effective but not efficient, and it was his pitch count more than his innings limit that forced him out of the game after the fifth. Even so, Hughes picked up his 16th win. The Yankees offense did more than enough damage with home runs from Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson. They’ve scored at least nine runs in three of the past four games.

    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 

    AP Photo

    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.
