Late rally propels Yanks past Indians

It seemed as though my pregame prediction of a 1-0 game was going to come true through six innings, with the score in favor of the Indians. But then thunder struck Mark Teixeira’s bat and his three-run homer boosted the Yankees over the Indians, 7-3.

Best of all: A.J. Burnett. W, 8 IP, 5 H, 3 R, ER, 0 BB, 8 K. He looked very sharp, as he improves to 6-2. Need I say more?

Robinson Cano has caught fire as well. He is 13 for his last 21 with nine RBIs and 20 total bases.

Worst of all: Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-3 with a walk. Derek Jeter’s throwing error allowed two unearned runs to score in the seventh. (But he made up for it with a two-run single in the home half.)

Coming up: The Yankees look to take the series Monday afternoon with Andy Pettitte on the mound searching for his seventh win of the year.
