AJ Burnett was absolutely awful the first inning. He gave up 4 runs before even getting an out in the inning. He has since settled down but the Yankees have not been able to get anything off of John Lackey, the Angels starter. Unless the Yanks get on a hot streak and tear through the bullpen, it looks like we'll be playing game 6 in the Bronx on Saturday.
