"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice



On a night where the Yanks had a 3-0 lead against a hot young pitcher, A.J. Burnett could not give the team any length. Burnett gave up two runs but went only five innings. The Mariners scored two more in the sixth against Luis Ayala and that was enough. Eduardo Nunez was picked off of second base in the eighth inning, the Yankees’ best chance to tie the game.

A dispiriting late night loss, 4-3. What’s worse is that Felix Hernandez goes for the Mariner’s tonight.

A lot of work for Cashman to do. A lot of work.

I went to bed with the Yanks up 1-0, and it looked like AJ was dealing. Disappointing this a.m.
