You would think that the Yankees have the Curse of the Bambino hanging over their heads or something... but we're no longer in that house, so it wouldn't make sense. Why do so many Yankees keep getting hit by pitches? Something needs to be done. I know hitting batters is part of the game, but at this point, how many more Yankees are going to get hit on the hand? It's ridiculous... it's like they're aiming.
The Yankees won tonight but Robinson Cano got hit and left in the 2nd inning. According to USA Today, the precautionary X-rays came back negative and he'll be day to day, read HERE. It still bothers me though.
The Yankees dominated in the game tonight though and Alfonso Soriano led the charge with 2 home runs tonight. It seemed like everyone loved what they saw tonight. Funny moment from Wally Matthews on Twitter tweeting this at Soriano's 3rd at bat:
Alfonso Soriano did not hit a HR his third time up. BumThat's just funny. He's joking by the way.... just in case you didn't get it.

The runs for the Yanks went like this: Derek Jeter singled in the first knocking in Brett Gardner. Shortly after that, Alfonso Soriano cranked out a 3 run home run. His first of the night. In the 3rd, Sori homered again. In the 6th, Mark Reynolds went deep. In the 7th ARod homered.
Home run central tonight for the Bronx Bombers.
The pitching was brought to you by Andy Pettitte who went 7 strong, gave up 5 hits and 0 runs. The only run came off Adam Warren... but the Yanks just dominated tonight... You gotta love it.
Final: Yankees 7 - Blue Jays 1
2 in a row tomorrow, that's the plan!
