The Yankees hit six home runs tonight, but that wasn’t enough to keep them in first place in the division. A 10-8 loss dumped the Yankees back into second place in the American League East, a half game behind Tampa Bay. Andy Pettitte had his shortest healthy start of the year, allowing the first seven runs of an early 10-1 deficit that the Yankees couldn’t climb out of despite homers from Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher, Mark Teixeira (2) and Alex Rodriguez (2).
