NEW YORK -- C.J. Wilson's bid to close out the New York Yankees in Game 3 has hit a serious snag early. Already down 3-0 to start the bottom of the third, Wilson served up back-to-back homers to Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano.
Wilson has allowed five runs -- four earned -- on four hits and two costly walks in the Yankees' three-run second inning. Both walks came around to score.
After the two home runs, Wilson retired the side in order. Through three innings, he's thrown 53 pitches
