NEW YORK (AP) -- A.J. Burnett pitched neatly into the eighth inning, Russell Martin hit a three-run homer and the New York Yankees kept rolling right along with a 5-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night.
Robinson Cano tripled to start a four-run fourth inning and Jorge Posada rounded the bases twice on his solo shot in the sixth, which was changed to a home run after umpires watched the video replay.
Nick Swisher had an RBI single for the Yankees, who have won four straight and 14 of 18 overall. By taking the first two games against Milwaukee in an interleague matchup of division leaders, New York clinched its sixth consecutive series victory since getting swept at home by Boston from June 7-9.
