Yanks take another series

The New York Yankees defeated the Tampa Bay Rays by the score of 5-3 today. Andy Pettitte pitched 6 innings giving up 3 runs, he did hit a batter and have 3 walks but he also had 7 strikeouts. Phil Hughes came in to the game in the seventh and looked great pitching a 1-2-3 inning hitting 95 on the gun and showing a good curve. Phil Coke came on in the eighth and had a man on second but survived the inning and Mo went 1-2-3 in the ninth. The Yankees are a full game ahead of the Sox for first place in the AL East heading into the Beantown showdown. The Yankees offense didn't get many hits but when they did they hit homeruns with 4 of them. Mark Teixeira hit his league leading 18th in the first inning. Nick Swisher has seemed to get his stroke back hit a 2 run homerun, Johnny Damon who loves hitting at home hit a solo homerun and so did Derek Jeter. A-rod didn't get a hit but hit the ball sharply tw16ice at the third baseman. Hideki Matsui is 0 for his last 16 and may need a day off. A.J. Burnett goes against former teammate Josh Beckett who has righted himself lately tomorrow night at 7 with pre and post game on the Yes network and the game on MY9.
