Yankees power their way over Tigers

Mark Teixeira's second three-run homer in as many games fueled the Yankees' second victory in a row, and the game wasn't as close as the scoreboard indicated. Russell Martin and Alex Rodriguez each added homers in the win, while a Yankees fan threw back the ball ex-Yankee Austin Jackson deposited in the bleachers.

As always, I hope when I go to today's game it is just like yesterday or a true pitchers' duel. I'm in the city right now, and it looks like it will be a beautiful day.

Scoreboard Says:
Yankees 10, Tigers 6
Win: A.J. Burnett
Loss: Brad Penny
Save: Mariano Rivera

A Dozen it is:
The Yankees banged out 12 hits against the Tigers, seven of which off Penny.

Really, Tex?: 
Tex is tied for the major league lead in homers and is second in RBIs after two three-run shots as a lefty. Did somebody brainwash him to think April was May?

Game Ball: 
For throwing three pitches to earn a stat that many baseball fanatics put way too much weight on, Mo gets the Game Ball.

“73 to go” (After Jeter's first hit. Wasn't listening when he made it 72 to go.)

Editor's Note
I'll be at the stadium today in section 427 to see Phil Hughes and the Yanks try to sweep away the Tigers. I'll have my Twitter updates live for you right here on the site.
