Royals @ Yankees 5/23/12


Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez both belted home runs to put the Yankees up 3-0. Has the offense finally awoken? 

A ground ball scores Jeter with a fielders choice. Alex Rodriguez follows it up with a long solo home run, his second of the game,  to make it 5-0 Yanks.

Yankees win 8-3
