There were questions about both A.J. Burnett and Tommy Hunter coming into tonight's Game 4. Burnett answered a few of them very a very strong top half of the first. Hunter went and had himself a strong first as well.
Hunter needed only seven pitches - six strikes - to work through the Yankees' 1-2-3. Derek Jeter led off with a grounder to short. Curtis Granderson followed by grounding to first, and Mark Teixeira then swung and missed at a curve in the dirt. That did it, and the first inning saw six total batters, two strikeouts, and only 16 pitches, with 14 strikes.
A great start by two iffy arms.
