This is what the Yankees do when they're at their best. They just keep grinding and make an inning seem like a lifetime for a pitcher.
It sure is a reversal from last night, when Cliff Lee wore them down. Toward the end of his time out there, Tommy Hunter kept bluffing toward second, as if the last thing in the world he wanted to do was throw a pitch toward home plate. Most times in this fourth inning, it worked out poorly for him: Ahead in the count to Alex Rodriguez, Hunter hit him with a pitch. Robinson Cano singled, Nick Swisher struck out at the end of a long at-bat, Lance Berkman singled and Hunter was done.
Brett Gardner's broken bat single against Derek Holland brought home A-Rod and shattered the lens on TBS' camera. It's 3-2 Yankees.
Nice play by shortstop Elvis Andrus to get the force play at third.
