What an Inning!

The Yankees took John Lackey’s hardest punches for the first six innings of tonight’s game — while trailing 4-0.

Like I wrote earlier, A.J. Burnett showed toughness in not letting the Angels put the game out of reach. It paid off for Burnett and the Yankees.
The Yankees hitters showed patience, especially in the seventh inning when Jorge Posada and Derek Jeter followed a Melky Cabrera double with back-to-back walks. The two vets didn’t swing at any bad pitches, even though Lackey tried to get them to. By taking free passes, Posada and Jeter put Mark Teixeira the driver’s seat against Angels reliever Darren Oliver.
Teixeira came through in a big way by smacking a double that cleared the bases.
Then Hideki Matsui singled, and then Robinson Cano hit a triple.
In a matter of minutes, the Yankees had a 6-4 lead. What a rally, what an inning, what a game and what series so far.
