Not much to say about tonight. Three Toronto pitchers allowed seven hits and one was for extra bases. That’s not going to win many games.
“A.J. (Burnett) was dominating,” Toronto manager John Gibbons said. “He showed what he can do.”
Burnett said he relied mostly on his four-seam fastball. He also talked about how he has improved his quickness to the plate and is holding runners better. The one time the Yankees tried to steal, Bobby Abreu was thrown out.
Jorge Posada is day-to-day according to Joe Girardi.
Dustin McGowan, Toronto’s scheduled starter tomorrow, went back to the hotel early tonight with the dreaded “flu-like symptoms.” If he can’t go, Shaun Marcum will start.
