    This Yankees victory was brought to you by Lursa and B’Etor Duras…as New York managed to cling on to this win. (“Klingon,” get it?)

    Funny, in the first couple of innings, it looked like A.J. Burnett was going to cut through this one like a hot knife through butter. And, it looked like the Yankees bats – sweet two-out, two-RBI, single by Brett Gardner in the second – were going to cruise as well. However, innings three through seven were somewhat hazardous for our Yankees nerves. (At least they were for mine.) Good thing that Burnett was able to get those big two-out strikeouts to end the fifth and sixth innings. And, it was good that Mo Rivera had the at’em ball working for him tonight – or else this one-run win could have been a blown game (all things considered).

    In any event, a win is a win, right? And, that’s now 12 wins in their last 14 games for the Yankees. You really can’t ask for anything more than that.

      those 2 more missed umpire calls could have been huge…

      That makes 6 straight lucky wins against the Twins, if anyone’s counting. I wonder if they really count in the standings…

      I like Aceves a lot. He does wonders with stuff a tick above average, but I would not bet the ranch on 7, tomorrow.

      Missed this one, as I was out at the gf’s and we were watching the baseball wives special on E (it was awesome, and my Mo L-Po is gorgeous) but caught the highlights in the post game.

      Gotta love AJ right now. Even when he doesn’t have his lights out stuff he can battle and put up zeroes. I remember his post game comment after he got lit up in the last series in Boston and they were to the tune of, “This game was embarrassing, but when I get on a roll, you’ll know it and it will be impressive.”

      He’s on a roll right now, and he’s right…very impressive.
