Yankees win third straight

The Yankees are now a .500 baseball team, and for the moment, their offense actually looks pretty potent. Tonight’s 14-1 win against Cleveland was the Yankees third straight game scoring at least seven runs, something they never did last season. They scored with small ball in a four-run, four-hit second inning, then they scored on home runs by Ichiro Suzuki, Robinson Cano, Kevin Youkilis, Lyle Overbay and Brennan Boesch. Overbay had three hits, Cano and Brett Gardner had four, and the offensive outburst was more than enough for Andy Pettitte, who pitched another gem to improve to 2-0 after two starts. He gave up a solo homer to Asdrubal Cabrera, but that was his only costly mistake through seven strong innings.
