Open Thread

Solid win for the Yanks today. It was a very good game. Gordon pitched quite well, and Brett Gardner got the walk-off in the bottom of the 10th. As usual, full game review will come tomorrow morning.

In transaction news, the Yanks sent Lance Pendleton back down to AAA. Also, Amaury Sanit was released. Sanit had just been sent to the DL for his elbow.

Also, Scott Kazmir has been released from the LA Angels. According to Alden Gonzalez:

Cashman said he hasn’t looked into the possibility of acquiring Scott Kazmir but will eventually. “I know he’s struggled,” he said.

We’ll keep you posted on any Kazmir rumors.

Anyway, a WIN for the Yanks. Use this as an open thread. Have a good night everyone.

Game Review from MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:

NEW YORK — Growing up near Baltimore, Mark Teixeira used to marvel at the switch-hitting exploits of Eddie Murray, passing through the turnstiles wondering which side of the plate his hero would homer from that night.

Now Teixeira has equaled the Hall of Famer in at least one category, homering from both sides of the plate for the 11th time in his career, helping lead the charge in a 12-4 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium.
