Yankees @ Nationals 6/16/12


It took 14 innings but the Yankees won their first game today without the help of a home run. The Yankees won 5-3 in 14 innings to extend the streak (and overall) win streak against the NL East to 8 straight games.

Teix led the way with 2 rbis and Ibanez and Eric Chavez each had an rbi a piece in the win. 

The red hot Yankees continued beating up on their little brother, the NL East, last night with a win against the Nationals. That was their 7th straight win against a National League East team. This afternoon the Yankees will be going after #8 against the Washington Nationals. Andy Pettitte will be on the mound for the Yankees and Jordan Zimmerman will be on the mound for the Nationals. The game will be televised at 1:05 pm ET on MLB Network and YES.
