Back On Track

2010 Pretty In Pinstripes Challenge Tracker: Entry #50 – 5/30/10 – Indians @ Yankees

Final Score: Yankees 7, Indians 3.

In today’s installment of the Strange Case Of Dr. AJ & Mr. Burnett, we saw the skillful talent of Dr. AJ.
Burnett is a mystery. I hate using movie-line cliches, but he really is like a box of chocolate. Which AJ are you going to get? You don’t know until he pitches a couple of innings. In this game, he pitched eight solid innings, gave up three runs (only ONE of them was earned) on five hits. He walked no batters, and struck out eight. This is the AJ we like to see.
He handed the game over to Mariano Rivera, who closed it perfectly. 
Our bats were alive, scoring seven runs on twelve hits. Teixeira looks like he’s heating up, he hit his eighth home run of the season, and went 2-for-4 in the game. We saw doubles, triples, and hits galore. Have I mentioned that I love this lineup? I don’t envy the pitchers who have to face us.
All in all, it was a great game. We quickly erased the disappointment of the previous game, and got back on track.
