The Yankees beat up on the Royals for the 2nd night in a row. Brian Bannister gave up 4 runs in the bottom of the 1st, which was more than enough for the Bombers to take care of business. A.J. Burnett, meanwhile, bounced back nicely from his atrocious outing last week. He only lasted 5 innings in a rain shortened performance, but allowed no runs on only 4 hits and 1 walk while striking out 3.
Alex Rodriguez was 2-4, but neither of those 2 was home run number 600. Fans at the Stadium didn’t go away empty handed though. Milestone seekers got to see Jorge Posada pick up his 1,000th career RBI. Robinson Cano, meanwhile, is just 2 hits shy of 1,000 for his career.
The Yankees continued to beat up on the Royals after an hour and half rain delay that started in the bottom of the 5th. The final score was 7-1 in a game that was never close.
Kyle Davies takes the mound today against Sergio Mitre in the one game the Royals may realistically be able to take at the Stadium. At this point every Yankee fan following A-Rod’s pursuit knows that Davies was the Royal to give up Alex’s 500th home run. Game starts at 1pm.
