Perhaps you were asleep (as were we), or maybe you had just given up on a game that appeared lost (against KC? Get real.), but in the wee hours last night the Yankees put on one of their more impressive offensive displays of the year, tagging the Royals for 10 runs in the 8th inning en route to a 12-5 comeback win. Bobby Abreu paced the attack with 4 rbi, including the key go-ahead double, Cano had 4 hits, one a homer, Jorge had 3 and a homer, Damon 2 and a homer, and Derek went 3 for 6, boosting his average to .344, just 2 measly points behind Joe Mauer. (Yes, Alex K’ed 3 times.) This team is looking ever more like a juggernaut, nevermind the less than awesome competition—though it’s worth noting KC is looking a lot more game than they were earlier this year. But Sox fans know all about that, don’t they? Tonight, Mike Mussina, fresh off the DL, goes for win 14 for about the 9th time. We hope he finally makes it. Let the good times roll.
