Yankees go back to back, lead 5-0

The Yankees' bats are awake today. With a 3-0 lead after some timely hitting -- and a questionable decision by Jeff Francoeur -- in the second, Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano hit back-to-back home runs in the third against C.J. Wilson.

It's a 5-0 lead for CC Sabathia -- and Mariano Rivera when Joe Giradi thinks the time is right.

Good point brought up by the TBS crew -- how long does C.J. Wilson last in this game? It's already 5-0 and you don't want to fall behind too far. It's still only the third inning and Texas is capable of producing runs.

Even in the top of the third, Ron Washington had Elvis Andrus steal third with two outs. Josh Hamilton lined out sharply to Derek Jeter to end the inning.
