Before tonight’s game, Joe Girardi said the air always feels “heavy” on a night like this. It was cold and damp, not the kind of night a slumping offense usually finds its groove, but the first four Yankees had hits and the offense got rolling in a 7-4 win against the Orioles. Alex Rodriguez and Jorge Posada both homered, and Mark Teixeira broke an 0-for-18 slide with two hits. A.J. Burnett got in and out of trouble through the first six innings before allowing a pair of two-run home runs in the seventh.
