Pettitte Pitches Yankees to win over Royals

Andy Pettitte was strong and looked like the Andy of old as he held the Royals to one run in seven innings while striking out 6.

The offense was led by Nick Swisher and Jorge Posada as the Yanks scored 4 runs. The Yankee 'pen continued to dominate as they turned in another 2 shutout innings with 4 whiffs. Rivera finally got into a game and notched his first save of the year. Bruney picked up a hold.

The Yankees took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first on Jorge's 2 rin single and never looked back. For anyone who likes to count, Andy threw 99 pitches.

CC Sabathia will start Saturday at 7:00 as the road trip continues. I'm sure the fairly weak Royals will put CC on track for his first win as a Yankee.

Yankees pound Orioles

AJ Burnett looked good and picked up the win and the Yankee offense was on fire as they beat the Birds 11-2.

Teixeira, Cano, and Swisher homered to finally break through with the first win of the young season.

Pettitte takes the hill on Friday against a rebuilt Royals team. This year's edition in KC is looking pretty strong.

Game time is 4:00 on YES.

Yankees lose home opener

So, it looks like they aren't going to win the 162 games I had hoped for, nor will CC win every start.

Oh well. It's a long season.

CC was shaky, and had trouble getting his fastball over for strikes. The Yankee offense was good, putting up 5 runs, which should be enough when the ace is on the mound.

Wang is scheduled to start Wednesday at 7:05 against the O's on YES.
