NEW YORK WRECKS KANSAS CITY
Mon, 26 Jul 2010 08:29 PM EDT

The New York Yankees are back on their feet after some crippling injuries and off field drama has given them a lot of difficulties in recent weeks. In their most recent game against the Royals, they took them to the cleaners, the score ended up being 12-6 after nine innings of domination. As always, the batting for the Yankees proved to be as destructive as ever.

With the eyes of the world on his every move, Alex Rodriguez is poised to make history as the youngest player to ever hit the 600 home run mark. Blasting his 599th in the series opener, it would seem only fitting that he nail the 600th in the closing game. With the bases loaded in the eighth inning, and thousands of fans eagerly awaiting the legendary moment, disaster struck.

An errant pitch from Blake Wood, who was intent on striking the slugger out, curved high and struck A-Rod in the hand. Taking a fastball to the hand would put anyone else out of commission, but Alex assured press and team management that he was ok, despite the massive bruise on his hand.  He is lucky no bones were broken, but he is grateful the ball didn’t deflect and hit his face.

Wood claims it was a mistake, and truthfully, it could happen to the best pitcher in the game, simply release the ball at the wrong moment, and disaster strikes.  Team manager Joe Girardi said in a press interview after the game that everyone in the dugout, and on the team in general was very scared when A-Rod fell to the ground clutching his hand, he is an extremely integral part of the club.

The Yankees made quick work of the Royals, blasting in 12 runs, 3 of those were by Rodriguez, before he was hit. Derek Jeter added three hits and an RBI as the Yankees won for the 14th time in 18 games. Be sure and follow the Yankees at www.scoresandodds.com, home of the best sports betting info on the net.
