Burnett Throws Gem, Albaladejo Doesn't

The Good

Burnett pitched 7 innings of 1 run ball with the one run being unearned, and got his 10th win of the season. He allowed just 2 hits and 2 walks during his start. The offense came alive with 4 homeruns last night, and Nick Swisher led the way by hitting homeruns from both sides of the plate. Damon hit the 200th homerun of his career, and even Cano got in on the action with a jack and a triple. The captain got three hits and a walk showing that he is the best lead off hitter in the history of the lead off.

The Bad

In the 8th inning, Albaladejo showed us all why he was down in Scranton to begin with. Pull it together!

The Ugly

Carl Crawford stole a base last night, which happened to be his 48th steal of the season. 48? That's just not fair.

Respect Jeter's Gangster is for the Children

The "Respect Jeter's Gangster" blog joined Johnny Damon's home run club, which raises money for the Children's Health Fund. We are pledged to donate $1.00 for every homerun the Yankees hit this season. Four homeruns last night, 2 from Swisher, 1 from Cano and 1 from Damon. A good night for children's health.

Jorge Posada 13hr = $13.00
Hideki Matsui 15hr = $15.00
Derek Jeter 11hr = $11.00
Mark Teixeira 25hr = $25.00
Nick Swisher 16hr = $16.00
Robinson Cano 15hr = $15.00
Johnny Damon 17hr = $17.00
Melky Cabrera 8hr = $8.00
Jose Molina 1hr = $1.00
Alex Rodriguez 19hr = $19.00
Brett Gardner 3hr = $3.00
Francisco Cervelli 1hr = $1.00
Eric Hinske 4hr = $4.00
Total = $148.00
