Felix Hernandez had not allowed five runs in an inning all season until the Yankees went to work in the fourth. Bouncing back from a sluggish weekend, the Yankees’ five-run fourth sent them to a 9-3 win that was their second in a row. They increased their American League East lead to four games, the largest lead any team has had in the division this season. Mark Teixeira and Chris Dickerson each went deep in the fourth as the Yankees beat Hernandez for the first time since 2008. Phil Hughes allowed one run through six innings to get the win.
