A.J. Burnett seems to have put that awful month of June behind him. In his final start before the all-star break, Burnett picked up his first win since May 30. The Yankees beat the A’s 6-2 to finish off their first road sweep of the season. Nick Swisher, making a final push for the all-star game, finished a triple short of the cycle and hit his 14th home run. Mark Teixeira had his 15th home run, part of a five-run, two-out rally in the fourth.
