The Yankees are going to Boston short-handed, but they’re going with some momentum after Freddy Garcia pitched them to a 3-2 win tonight in Baltimore. The Yankees salvaged a series split and have now won two straight heading into this week’s Red Sox series. Garcia made his first big league start since August 7 and gave up one run and two hits through six strong innings. Nick Swisher hit a two-run home run, and Curtis Granderson scored on a first-inning double to give the Yankees pitching staff all the support it needed. Despite a solo homer off Dave Robertson, the Yankees usual late-inning trio kept the lead intact and locked up the win.
