A.J. Burnett’s finally won a game. He allowed 10 hits through 5.2 innings, but the Yankees lineup picked up the slack in a 7-4 win against the Royals. Burnett hadn’t won since June 29. He allowed nothing but singles, and all of the runs he gave up came in a three-run fifth. After Burnett blew an early lead, the Yankees got it back with a three-run sixth before pulling away with runs in the seventh and eighth. Brett Gardner and Derek Jeter combined to reach base six times and drive in five runs. Jeter’s two-run triple put the Yankees in front for good.
