Yankees snap skid with clean win

The Yankees evened their series with the Tigers with a smooth, 6-2, victory last night. With an unusual lineup, Brett Gardner thrived in the leadoff spot and Nick Swisher drove in a pair from the five-hole.

Best of All: CC Sabathia earned his league-leading 16th win with seven strong innings. The big lefty struck out nine and walked three.

It was nice to see Robinson Cano connect for his first homer of the month and 22nd of the year. This probably isn’t a surprise to you based on the way he’s hitting lately, but Curtis Granderson homered again, his 12th.

Worst of All: Mark Teixeira was the only Yankee without a hit, as he posted an ugly 0-for-5 line with three strikeouts.

Coming Up: The third game of the series is tonight. Same time, same place, except I’ll be in attendance. Check back around game time for live updates from Yankee Stadium!
