Yankees win another series

The Yankees had a fairly easy win today 7-3. A.J. Burnett pitched 7 shutout inning giving up 6 hits with 2 walks and 7 strikeouts. Him and Jorge Posada have put back to back strong outings together ending the talk of them not being able to work well together. The Yankees really showed off their patience and ability to wear out pitchers today. Scott Feldman was out of the game in the 3rd inning throwing over 70 pitches. The Yankees had the bases loaded and Nick Johnson walked to give them the 1-0 lead, Mark Teixiera got a broken bat infield single which was much needed. He made it 2-0 and then Gardner had a infield hit and a stolen base after with a throwing error by the catcher to make it 4-0. Derek Jeter capped off the third inning with a 2 run homerun to make it 6-0. Alex Rodriguez hit his first homerun of the year in the 4th to make it 7-0. The Rangers scored their only runs in the 8th with a 3 run homerun by Nelson Cruz off of Alfredo Aceves. Aceves who looked rusty from not pitching gave up 2 hits and 3 runs in 1/3 of an inning. Damaso Marte got both of the guys he faced out and Joba Chamberlain finished off the game with a 1-2-3 inning with 2 strikeouts. The scary thing about the Yankees being off to this great start is that they aren't even hitting on all cylinders yet. Mark Teixeira is hitting 100, A-rod just hit his first homerun of the year today. Nick Johnson isn't hitting yet although he is drawing lots of walks and Javier Vazquez has 2 of the teams 3 losses. They are off to their best start in 7 years and as it was all spring their isn't any chaos at all. It is truly a happy clubhouse and team with nothing to talk about other then winning baseball. I will have some postgame stuff shortly with my article that I wrote for Worldnewsvine.
