The Yankees finally swung the bat a little bit this afternoon, and when they needed it, they ran into a little bit of luck, too. Peter Bourjos dropped sacrifice fly let not only the tying run score, but also the winning run in a 6-5 Yankees win. Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson both homered, with Granderson going deep for the first time since August 28. With the bullpen finally fully available, Cory Wade, Rafael Soriano, Dave Robertson and Mariano Rivera delivered a scoreless inning apiece. Freddy Garcia had his second straight rocky outing, allowing five runs in five innings. Catcher Jesus Montero was swapped for defensive replacement Austin Romine after six innings behind the plate. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Yankees.
