The Yankee offense clobbered the White Sox Wednesday, 18-7. The bombers scored fours runs in the first, two in the second, seven in the third, four in the seventh and one in the eighth in a complete shellacking of Chicago. Every single Yankee starter collected at least one hit en route to the team’s 23. The big stars were Brett Gardner, Derek Jeter, Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano. Each of them had at least three hits. Cano put a three run homer into the people in the first inning. Granderson had a tripe and a double while Jeter had a double.
At one point the Yankees led this game 13-1, but A.J. Burnett was awful. Burnett allowed thirteen hits and seven runs in just 4.1 innings. At one point the game was 13-7 with all the momentum favoring the White Sox. Fortunately, the combination of Cory Wade, Luis Ayala and Rafael Soriano put out the fire, while the offense added a few more for good measure. The only down side to this win is that the Yankees needed to use three bullpen arms in such a one sided victory.
The Yankees go for the improbable sweep of the four game series on the road today at 8:10pm. Ivan Nova fights for his spot in the rotation and the White Sox counter with Philip Humber. On a final note, if Nova pitches well, why not sit A.J.? Where is it written that you have to play a guy who doesn’t perform just because you pay him a lot of money? If Phil Hughes and Nova deliver and A.J. doesn’t why should he keep his job?
