Dare I Say There Was Offense?

The Good

When did Ivan Nova learn how to pitch?  That's two consecutive dominating performances from the young man.  He pitched 8 innings and allowed just 1 run.  Cano stepped up big with 3 hits including a homerun, and 3 RBI's, and Overbay hit a grandslam in the 6th to push the game further out of reach.  In total, the Yankees scored 8 runs, to match Nova's 8 innings of work.

The Bad

Hafner hit a foul ball off his foot pulling him out of the game.  He was 0-2 at that point, and Wells took his spot and went 2-2 to finish the night.  All in all, I would say that the only bad thing is that we didn't have Wells start the game as the DH in the first place.

The Ugly

Jeter is returning for the final game of the Royals series.  All reports have indicated that there will be blood.

Finally a Glimmer of Hope

That glimmer is in the form of $4 that is going to the Children's Health Fund.  Cano and Overbay were the heroes of the evening.

Travis Hafner 12hr = $24
Vernon Wells 10hr = $20
Brett Gardner 7hr = $14
Kevin Youkilis 2hr = $4
Jayson Nix 2hr = $4
Robinson Cano 21hr = $42
Ichiro Suzuki 5hr = $10
Lyle Overbay 11hr = $22
Brennan Boesch 3hr = $6
Francisco Cervelli 3hr = $6
Chris Stewart 3hr = $6
Ben Francisco 1hr = $2
David Adams 2hr = $4
Curtis Granderson 1hr = $2

Mark Teixeira 3hr = $6
Zoilo Almonte 1hr = $2

Total 86 hrs = $172
