Yankees pound the Rangers

The New York Yankees were shutout yesterday and they sure seemed mad about it tonight.  The Yankees pounded out 12 runs and knocked Alexi Ogando the Rangers starting pitcher out of the game in the second inning.  C.C. Sabathia wasn't at his best but I think he also pitched to the scoreboard as he went seven innings allowing four runs, he won his eighth game of the season.  Sabathia has gotten a lot of run support this season.  Luis Ayala and Lance Pendleton closed out the last two innings. 

Curtis Granderson his his major league leading and tying homerun, he has 21 on the year.  Robinson Cano and Nick Swisher also hit homeruns.  Jorge Posada had a hit to extend his streak to eight games and he made a couple of nice plays at first base.  Eduardo Nunez who is the starting shortstop while Derek Jeter is on the 15 day disabled list had two hits. 

The Yankees have now won four out of their last five games after losing three straight to the Red Sox.  The Yankees remain in second place but they did pick up a game on the Red Sox tonight to put them a game and a half behind in the AL East.  The Yankees and Rangers will play game two of their three game series tomorrow night at 7:00PM with Ivan Nova going up against Derek Holland.
