WP: Linebrink (1-0)
LP: Robertson (0-2)
S: Jenks (5)

Players of the Game: A.J. Pierzynski and Andruw Jones. Jones had 2 home runs for the day while Pierzynski went 3-for-4 with a go-ahead double in the seventh.

Play/Turning Point of the Game: A.J. Pierzynski's go-ahead 2 RBI double in the seventh inning off of Damaso Marte. The Yankees had just taken the lead and the White Sox were able to take it right back.


  • Curtis Granderson left the game with a strained left groin. Should be interesting to see how further results will come out on this. He may end up on the 15-day DL.
  • Javier Vazquez had another rough outing, and you can tell he's nervous out there when he couldn't field a groundball after allowing a home run. He just needs to pitch with some more confidence.
  • Speaking of pitchers struggling, David Robertson and Damaso Marte have been nothing but disappointments this year. They were the unsung heroes of the 2009 postseason, but it seems like they can't get anyone out now. Boone Logan actually had a pretty good outing today, hitting 97 mph on the gun so Marte better watch his back.
  • Nick Swisher finally broke out of a slump at home by hitting a go-ahead 2-run home run which seemed like it would be enough for the Yankees to win.
  • Mark Teixeira certainly happy it's May as he went 2-for-4 with an RBI.
  • The game was almost 4 hours long. It was "embarassing and pathetic" for Joe West. It was a slow and painful loss for Yankees fans as it appeared we may have pulled off the comeback victory during the sixth.
