Well, obviously I didn’t get a chance to see this one as I was at work. I actually wanted to ask a question to you, the reader. Since many of us work during the day and there’s rarely an opportunity to watch a weekday game on TV, would you guys prefer an open thread while the game goes on? Leave feedback in the comments.
Anyway, the Yanks blew this one open in the 6th putting up a 9 spot highlighted by a Cano homer. That would be his 3rd straight game with a homer to go along with a single and double.
Hughes had a pretty decent pitching line, surrendering 0 walks and only 2 runs on 4 hits. By the way, his last 34 and 2/3 inning pitched have been pretty decent (3.63 ERA 23-6 K/BB).
I can only pray that Jesus Montero ends up having something close to Miguel Cabrera’s hitting prowess (they’ve been comped in the past), cause Cabrera is an absolute beast at the dish. That would be his 5th homer in his last 5 games.
