Yankees bounce back against Cleveland

Tweet [1]

One day after their worst loss of the year, the Yankees bounced back with one of their best wins. A.J. Burnett was lights out through eight innings, and the rejuvenated offense came to life with a five-run seventh that sent the Yankees to a 7-3 win against the Indians. Juan Miranda and Francisco Cervelli added a pair of insurance runs in the eighth, but the big hits belonged to Derek Jeter and Mark Teixeira who had a two-run single and a go-ahead home run, both with two outs in the seventh. Burnett struck out eight, walked none and allowed only one earned run.
