The New York Yankees were (finally) defeated by the Texas Rangers 6-5. Nelson Cruz homered twice, including a game-tying homer in the 8th and game-winning shot in the 13th. Chad Gaudin was the pitcher who had to give up the loss. With the loss, the Yankees lead in the AL East is 1.5 games.

That’s right folks, Chad Gaudin gets his name in the headline. The duo of Phil Hughes and Chad Gaudin pitched eight innings and held the Athletics to only three runs as the Yankee offense supplied the rest of the fireworks as the New York Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics 9-3. Phil Hughes got his 16th win of the season, which suddenly has only thirty games remaining. With the win and the Blue Jays’ domination of the Rays, the Yankees take a game lead in the AL East while they move to a record of 82-50.

The New York Yankees brought their bats tonight in support of Dustin Moseley by going yard five times in the win over the Toronto Blue Jays 11-5. Dustin Moseley got the win to improve to 4-2 on the year and keep his starting job (for now). With the win and the corresponding Tampa Bay Rays win, the two teams move to 78-48 for the season.

A day after getting shut out by ‘King Felix’ (I don’t exactly understand the whole ‘king’ thing, but anyway), the Yankee offense woke up and put up nine runs on the Mariners en-route to a 9-5 win. Jorge Posada led the charge with a first inning, two-run home run. Eduardo Nunez, who got the start at third for the injured A-Rod (more on him later), collected his first major league hit, a seventh inning RBI single. For the fourth straight time, Javier Vazquez failed to give the Yankees six innings. In three innings, Vazquez gave up four runs on eight hits.

The Yankees and Royals sat through a lengthy rain delay for the second time this season – but the result wasn’t worth the more than two hour wait. Despite threats in the sixth, eighth, and ninth, the Yankees couldn’t get that elusive big hit. Billy Butler’s fifth inning barely-a-home run stood as the game-winning run, as the Royals won, 4-3.

The New York Yankees simply had no answer for the Angel starter Sean O’Sullivan, as he went six innings and allowed two earned runs on only two hits as the Angels beat the Yanks by a score of 10-2. Phil Hughes got hit early and often and picked up his third loss of the year. With the loss, the Yankees move to 58-34 on the season.

With the 2010 Major League Baseball season more than halfway over and the most boring sports day of the year upon us, I figured I’d hand out a midterm report card to the New York Yankees. Professor Poedubicky plays no favorites, and isn’t afraid to tell his pupils if they need to be more productive…

The Yankees looked awfully helpless as Mariners’ ace Felix Hernandez threw a two-hit shutout. Javier Vazquez threw six innings of three-run ball, but the Yankees offense just couldn’t get on track against the crafty righty, as they lost 7-0. Welp, that’s what happens when you face two of the AL’s best arms back-to-back.

Through 72 games, the New York Yankees are sporting a record of 45-27 and are first in the AL East, by far and away the best division in baseball. So far, there is little reason to panic. The team is on pace to win 101 games and has scored the second most runs in baseball. The Yankees have done all of this with numerous injuries (Nick Johnson, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Marcus Thames, etc, etc.), but one injury not listed is, in my opinion, one of the most consequential so far throughout the year. The injury? Alfredo Aceves and his ailing lower back. Check out the article to see my reasons as to why the Yanks need to get their “Ace” back in the bullpen as soon as possible.

A.J. Burnett was torched for six runs on six hits, including two home runs, in just 3 1/3 innings of work. Jamie Moyer and the Phillies defeated the Yankees, 6-3, ending the Yanks’ nine-game home win-streak.
