Jorge Posada continued his hot start with 2 more hits, Brett Gardner also looks to be out in front for the CF job as he had 2 more hits, a walk and stolen base. In the last 3 innings the Yankees pitching gave up 4 runs. The pitchers were Brackman,Kontos,De La Rosa and Jackson. Anthony Claggett who the Yanks got in the Sheffield trade pitched 2 innings giving up 1 hit with 1 strikeout. Austin Jackson had 1 hit in 2abs. Nick Swisher went 2 for 3, he has looked good so far in 2 games. Melky Cabrera was 0-3 and looks to be losing ground quick, he better start hitting soon or he will be a bench player. The Yankees will be back in home against the Twins tomorrow, Cano,Arod Jeter will all be back in the lineup, Joba Chamberlain gets the start. Francisco Liriano gets the start for the Twins.
