The Yankees scored 18 runs on 23 hits against the White Sox.  Gavin Floyd only lasted 2.1 innings and surrendered 10 runs on 9 hits.  Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer off of Floyd in the first inning.  Eric Chavez hit his first career home run for the Yankees in the third inning against Floyd.  Brett Gardner was able to score four times in the game.

Yankees starting pitcher AJ Burnett didn’t fare much better than Gavin Floyd.  Burnett only last 4.1 innings and gave up seven runs on 13 hits.  Burnett had a 13- 1 lead in the fourth inning, but surrendered five runs in the bottom of the inning.

When manager Joe Girardi came out to make a pitching change, AJ Burnett was visibly upset.  He was seen ripping off his jersey while he heading into the dugout.  Burnett mentioned in the postgame press conference that he was more upset with himself for his bad performance than at Girardi for pulling him.  When asked if there was anything positive to take away he said, “I get to go again in five days.  That’s about it.”
