The Yankees never gave the Brewers much of a chance tonight. They scored seven runs in the first two innings, chased Zack Greinke from the game and beat Milwaukee 12-2 at Yankee Stadium. It was the Yankees 13th win in their past 17 games, and gave them a game and a half lead in the American League East, their largest lead since June 2. Nick Swisher stayed hot with four RBI, three of them on a second-inning homer that quickly put the game out of reach. Freddy Garcia picked up his seventh win, allowing two runs through seven innings while throwing only 76 pitches.
