On an unmistakably good night for the Yankees, A.J. Burnett managed to steal the show in a bad way. The Yankees won 18-7 — the second time in five days that they scored at least 17 runs — but still Burnett couldn’t get a victory. He gave up a season-high 13 hits while pitching a season-low 4.1 innings. All seven White Sox runs were his, and this is a White Sox team that was without Paul Konerko and had scored a total of seven runs in its past four games. The Yankees bullpen held the White Sox to just one hit the rest of the night, while the Yankees finished with 23 hits, five of them by Derek Jeter. Curtis Granderson had five RBI, Brett Gardner scored four times and Eric Chavez hit his first home run as a Yankee.
