Yankees Pound The Royals 9 to 2 At The Cost Of Aaron Judge

Yankees Pound The Royals 9 to 2 At The Cost Of Aaron Judge

4 Bronx Bomber Home Runs Solid Tanaka Pitching Performance Power The Yankees; Oh But The Cost Of Victory Is Irreplaceable 

Story by RJ Suitor @BronxBomberBlues

New York--The New York Yankees pounded the Kansas City Royals Saturday afternoon behind 4 Bronx Bomber home runs, 14 hits, and the excellent pitching efforts of starter Masahiro Tanaka in front of 42,013 jubilant fans to even their record for the first time since the beginning of the season to (10-10) what could be wrong with that?  The cost to all of this was the Yankees Bronx Bomber Aaron Judge leaving the game early with an oblique injury and a trip to the injured list is inevitable.

Oddly enough it was the Yankees playing a series with the Kansas City Royals that cost Judge a good part of 2018 season with a fractured wrist  only to have karma repeat itself playing the Royals this time a likely left oblique injury after smashing his 2nd hit of the day, a base hit single to right field in the 6th inning had to leave the game after grimacing on the way to first base. Yankees manager Aaron Judge stated after the game that the injury would no doubt land Aaron Judge on the injury list.

The words there is always room for one more ring shallow in New York Yankees baseball land where already the majority of its key players on the teams MLB 25 Roster are sitting on the injured list the already injury-riddled list of stars. The Yankees could ill afford to add a team star performer to the non-ending list of injured players, let alone when that name happens to be the Yankees all-star outfielder Aaron Judge.  Even with the optimistic baseball fan can expect the Yankees to continue to compete at a major league level as there is not one MLB team in baseball that could reasonably compete in their division with that many injuries to their key players and remain at all competitive.

For the Yankees, it did not take long for the team's offense to figure out Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Heath Fillmeyer where the Yankees scored and scored off starting with a first-inning blast by none other than Aaron Judge a solo blast his 5th of the season. By the time the 4th inning was over the Yankees had built a 6 to 0 insurmountable lead over the Royals that made the game's conclusion a no doubt Yankee victory. Three other Yankees smashed home runs including Clint Frazier (5) in the 2nd inning, DJ LeMahiu (1) in the 4th innings who followed, Mike Tauchman (3) who blasted a three-run HR in the 4th inning. If all of this wasn't enough Yankees shortstop Glyber Torres smashed what was originally called a 3 run homer that was called back on instant replay after the Royals protested fan interference. Despite the fact that it was all but unlikely the ball would have ever been caught, none the less Torres was called out for fan interference, which leads to Yankees Manager Aaron Boone's early exit from the game for arguing the instant replay call after the home run was nullified.

In the meantime, Massishiro Tanka cruised through 7 innings of masterful pitching yielding 1 home run to Royals Whit Merrifield in the 6th inning. Tanaka gave up just the 1 run 4 hits 3 walks and 7 strikeouts. Jonathan Holder played the role of mop-up relief finished the last 2 innings yielding 1 home run 2 hits, just 1 run 1 walk and 1 strikeout. The game Box Score Details. 

The Yankees will wrap up their homestand series with the Royals on  Easter Sunday as Kansas City will send Jorge Lopez (0-2) to the mound and the Yankees will feature James Paxton (2-2) looking to surpass the teams (10-10) win-loss record. Game time is 1:05 PM at the Stadium.

New York-- CC Sabathia recorded his 247th career win with 1 run 5 innings of effective starting pitching, home runs by Mike Tauchman, Brett Gardner and the help of 4 innings of effective bullpen relief lead the New York Yankees over the Kansas City Royals 6 to 2 in front of 39,668 of a April 19th Good Friday night crowd at Yankee Stadium.

CC Sabathia pitched another effective start going 5 innings 1 run none earned 3 hits 4 walks and 5 strikeouts. The Yankees combined bullpen of Luis Cessa 1 run 2 hits, while the remaining bullpen crew of Adam Ottavino, Tommy Kahnlee, and Zack Britton fired blanks holding down the Royals offense the Sabathia win. 

On the offensive side newest Bronx Bomber Mike Tauchman blasted his 2nd season home run while the oldest Yankee veteran Brett Gardner sealed the Yankees win with his 5th home run of the season a run shot leading the Yankee offense filled with Managers Aaron Boone's makeshift replacement line up, while 12 of the Yankees 25 top roster players remain on the injured list.  

The Yankees took some small amount of payback upon the K.C. Royals starting pitcher Jakob Junis (1-2) who was the pitcher responsible for hitting Aaron Judge in 2018 season fracturing, Judge's wrist, rendering him injured, at least in part lead to the Yankees demise, contributing to the Yankees failure to capture the 2018 Division Championship. Aaron Judge recorded a double and a base on balls in 4 trips to the plate. Junis was responsible for the loss giving up 6 hits 5 runs 4 earned 2 walks 2 strikeouts.  Game Details see MLB Boxscore 

Bronx Bomber Notes:  Gio Gonzalez Today is the day that Yankees pitcher Gio Gonzalez will decide if he chooses to opt out of the Yankees minor league contract and has switched agents. Speculation is he will opt out becoming a free agent to sign with any team unless the Yankees opt to put him on the teams 40 man roster triggering his 3 Million plus incentive of $400,000 for each MLB start. The Yankees will have 48 hours to decide should Gonzalez decides to opt out which seems likely with German pitching effectively and CC Sabathia returns to the Yankees starting pitching rotation.  

Boone Logan The Yankees signed veteran first baseman Boone Logan who had previously made remarks regarding Catcher Gary Sanchez participation in the All-Star HR Hitting contest and about Yankee fans. Logan has a July 1st Opt-Out clause. Logan was assigned to play at SWB the Yankees AAA farm club as a depth option.
