WP: P. Humber (2-2) LP: A. Burnett (3-1)
SV: S. Santos (1)
As you can see from the box this was just an awful night for the Yankees, who were dominated by former Met, and throw-in in the Johan Santana deal, Philip Humber. He was lights-out for 7 innings, holding the Yankees to just one hit and a walk while striking out 5.
A.J. Burnett had another good start, but obviously that was wasted since the Yankees apparently left their lumber in Baltimore. The right-hander threw 8 innings of 3-hit ball, while allowing just one run on an Adam Dunn groundout in the 4th. Carlos Quentin, who led off the inning with a double would come around to score.
The only other run of the ballgame came in the top of the 9th off Rafael Soriano, who has been anything but impressive over his first month in Pinstripes.
The Yankees did get the leadoff man on in the 9th when Curtis Granderson singled, but he was quickly erased thanks to a Mark Teixeira doubleplay. Alex Rodriguez then struck out to end the game.
No need for any extra or unwanted analysis on this one. It was just an awful game for the Yankees hitters. They'll look to rebound tonight in the Bronx, with Ivan Nova going up against Gavin Floyd. First pitch is set for 7:05 PM.
