Royals @ Yankees 5/22/12


The Yankees are on the board!!! Robinson Cano solo home run, his 5th, making it 2-1 Royals

Derek Jeter ties the game with an RBI single. 2-2 Tie

Granderson on an RBI ground out gives the Yankees the lead 3-2. It may be YET ANOTHER RISP fail.. but it was a productive RISP FAIL... Baby steps Yankees fans. 

Hughes probably done after 6 IP and 103 pitches. 2 runs allowed and lowered his ERA under 5. Encouraging signs coming from Hughes even if 2 of his good starts were against the Royals and the bottom dwellers of the American League

Yankees win 3-2

Tonight the Yankees will be facing the Royals in the middle game of their three game series at 7:05 pm ET on MY9 and MLB Network. I have not heard yet if the Yankees offense will be active for the game but I do know that Phil Hughes will be starting for the Yankees against the Royals worst pitcher, Luke Hochevar.
