- Mark Teixeira hit three home runs, more than doubling his season total and giving the Yankees their first three-home-run-game since Alex Rodriguez did it against the Angels on April 26, 2005. Tex also drove in five runs, and lifted his season line from .181/.328/.295 to .207/.343/.396, accruing over 100 points of OPS in the process.
- Francisco Cervelli went 3 for 4 and drove in five runs of his own. Posada who?
- The Yanks dropped 10-plus runs on the Red Sox for the second straight game.
- The Yanks scored five earned runs off Clay Buchholz, Boston’s best pitcher in the early going.
- The Yankees beat the Red Sox 14-3 for their sixth straight victory, improving to 4-1 against their rivals on the season and having now won nine of their first 10 series.
These first two games at Fenway sure haven’t been lacking for action, that’s for damn sure.
A rain delay shortened CC Sabathia’s day, but Sabathia likely would’ve picked up his fifth win. His only rough inning was the 3rd, in which he (in my opinion, stupidly) plunked Dustin Pedroia with two outs and none on, giving Boston a free baserunner, who of course then came around to score on Victor Martinez’s two-run bomb, temporarily giving the Red Sox the lead.
But man, these 2010 Yankees just do not let up, injuries and all. Alfredo Aceves — who picked up the win — pitched an inning before pulling up lame in the middle of an at-bat. Apparently it won’t result in a DL stint, but it’s starting become almost comical the way the Yankees have been dropping during the past week and yet still somehow winning every game they play.
By the way, the mainstream media’s presumptive MVP, Robinson Cano, is 5-27 in May, and I’ve been jokingly blaming Mike for cursing Robbie. While he obviously wasn’t going to stay molten-hot all year, he’s looked pretty awful at the plate during the past week, taking classic “old Cano” weak hacks and swinging at pitches out of the strike zone. Additionally, I’d like to see Cano hit better than .193/.266/.281, 0HR, 6RBI and a .240 wOBA in the postseason before we think about giving him $20 million a year. Just sayin’.
