The Bronx Bombers are firing on all cylinders  right out of the gate as they pummeled the Detroit Tigers 10-6 today. All of the big guns are hitting all at once and this has led to the Yankees pouring on the offence.

Russell Martin followed up his great opener yesterday with a three run homer today. Mark Teixeira hit another three run HR. giving him six RBI’s over two days. If he could keep this pace up he would hit like 400 RBI’s this season. However I figure he will end up with more like 120. Alex Rodriguez had another HR and double and Derek Jeter went 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored.

Aj Burnett went 5 innings and no more because of his sinus infection and was having a hard time breathing and was fatigued but threw well considering. He had six strikeouts and gave up three ER on five hits.

Phil Hughes takes the ball tomorrow as the Yankees are hoping for the sweep.
