New York Yankees vs. Kansas City Royals Post Game Recap
Final Score: Yankees 11 Royals 6
The Yankees after a lack of offense in Colorado looked like a completely different team in Kansas City in the win over the Royals, as they scored more runs on Friday night than the entire series in Colorado. The win moves the Yankees to (21-13), and they still hold a slight lead for first place in the AL East.
Phil Hughes was pitching very well coming in to this start, but Friday Hughes wasn’t at his best, but with run support he was able to pick up his second win of the season. Hughes went 5.2 innings allowing six runs on seven hits, and two walks. The long ball hurt Hughes in this one, as he gave up two homeruns to Jarrod Dyson in the second inning, and then Mike Moustakas in the sixth.
