Yankees losing streak ends

The Yankees snapped their six game losing streak tonight with a 6-2 win.  Ivan Nova pitched well, the bullpen was great and the offense woke up.  The offense actually didn't do that bad last night either, it looks like they are ready to take off.  Alex Rodriguez had two solo homeruns and Jorge Posada making his first start since the controversy had two hits.  Brett Gardner had three hits as he continues to hit the ball well. 

Dave Robertson and Joba Chamberlain each pitched 1 1/3 innings.  Mariano Rivera faced the last hitter of the game because Joe Girardi didn't want to take any chances.  Amaury Sanit started the inning getting the first two outs but then gave up a walk and a double scoring a run.  Girardi came running out of the dugout obviously showing the importance of getting this win. 

It seems that as Arod goes so do the Yankees, if he gets on a hot streak watch the Yankees also get hot again and make everyone forget about this losing streak.  The Rays remain in first place two games ahead of the Yankees.  The Yankees will head to Baltimore for a brief two game series with Bartolo Colon starting tomorrow against Zach Britton a young phenom.  The Yankees will start the Subway Series on Friday night.
