Little Big League: Yankees 8 Royals 2

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

WP:Gaudin (6-10)
LP: Hochevar (7-12)

PLAYER OF THE GAME: This can easily go to Robinson Cano, but let's give it to the guy who hit his first career home-run: Ramiro Pena. Pena hit a solo home run in the 5ht inning to give the Yankees a 2-1 lead.

PLAY/TURNING POINT OF THE GAME: Here is where Cano will get his credit. Cano's grand slam in the 7th inning gave the Yankees an 8-2 lead and put the Royals down. It was his second career grand slam.

--Cano's grand slam was also his 25th home-run of the year,making him the fifth Yankee with at elast 25 home runs this year, setting a franchise record.
--Chad Gaudin really wants to pitch in Ocotber and Girardi will have to make a tough decision on which pitchers he will carry. If David Robertson is healthy, he will be on the roster, and possibly Marte if Girardi wants another lefty. Personally, I think Gaudin is more valuable in a 7-game series and he will be left off for the first round, but will be added for the ALCS should the Yankees reach that point.
--Yeah the title isn't a song, it's a movie, but I have practice in a half an hour so I have to make this quick. Besides it's the perfect headline considering it was basically the AAA Yankees beating up on the MLB Royals.

A.J. Burnett pitches tonight, so hopefully this will be a nice tune-up start for him before heading into the playoffs. But I know all Yankees fans are more interested in the doubleheader going on right now between the Twins and Tigers. As I type this the game is tied 1-1 in the top of the sixth. Tonight the pitching matchup is Brian Duensing vs Justin Verlander...I think I speak for all Yankee fans when I say we'd rather see the Twins win the Central. That's it for now.

SEE YA until tonight.
