Yanks split up to defeat Astros and Pirates

The Yankees divided into two groups to defeat the Astros and the Pirates today.  Even though the talent was split up evenly, the Yanks beat the Astros 3-1 and the Pirates 13-10.

A.J. Burnett actually no-hit the Astros through four innings, but was relieved by Dan Geise.  Johnny Damon supplied the power for the Yanks homering in the first inning.  - Box score

Phil Hughes gave up two runs over three innings against the Pirates, but Ian Kennedy held them to one unearned run over three innings.  Austin Jackson tied the game up at three in the sixth inning with a two-run homer, and Jesus Montero's grand slam in the seventh led a seven-run rally.  Mark Melancon's performance was less than spectacular, as he gave up five runs and only recorded two outs in the ninth inning.  - Box score
