We won the game on Saturday largely because of an amazing offense that included homeruns from Posada and Swisher. Sabathia put in 7 innings of work and allowed 3 runs. Robertson pitched well in relief.
In Sunday's game, Teixeira continued his hot streak with a homerun and a double and driving in all the Yankee runs. Wang put in 3 innings of scoreless baseball out of the bullpen.
The Saturday game didn't feature too much bad, but Sunday's game did. Not the least of which was Hughes 5 innings of 4 run ball, which puts him right back where he was before his amazing Texas start. Perhaps a good thing to take from this is that Wang can have his spot back.
Jose Veras is awful and on Sunday, Robertson and Coke were equally terrible. Robertson lost the Sunday game for the Yankees, but Coke didn't help by walking the first batter he faced. Perhaps the ugliest part of this weekend was getting crushed by Carl Pavano for 7.1 innings. At least he didn't get the win.
