The Yanks have now won the first three series of the year, all against potential post-season rivals. Cano had two home runs and three RBI. Granderson hit two triples in a row (he had a ghost man on third so he could hit again). He also threw Matsui out at home plate. I didn't know players could eject other players, but apparently they can. Jeter had a solo shot of his own. And Hughes pitched a respectable five innings with two earned runs.
Teixeira still doesn't remember how to hit. He does, however, remember how to walk, something he did three times yesterday.
The Angels no longer seem to be in the Yankees heads, and they're starting to show signs of desperation. Throughout the game Angels' players resorted to strange tactics in order to try to intimidate the Yankees, but were unsuccessful.
"It was weird," explained one fan at the game. "I mean, why would Mike Napoli come up to bat with his shirt off yelling something about Sparta? He's not even at home, he's not even in that good a shape. Just weird all around."
Showing Off the Guns
The Yanks hit three home runs yesterday, two from Cano and one from Captain Jeter. He's not a real captain, like on a boat, or Star Trek, but he still prefers to be referred to as Captain.
