TORONTO—The Blue Jays broke out of their recent slump at the plate, slugging four home runs to snap a three-game losing streak with an 8-1 victory over the Yankees on Wednesday night at Rogers Centre.
J.P. Arencibia started the offensive attack in the bottom of the second inning off New York starter Hiroki Kuroda. Arencibia, who finished a triple shy of the cycle, sent a 3-1 slider over the wall in left-center field for his fourth home run of the season, giving Toronto an early 2-0 lead.
I was watching a special about the Yellowstone super volcano the other day. The magma chamber is three times the size of New York City and the fallout from an eruption would probably cover three-fourths of the United States. According to a study commissioned by the BBC ash from such an eruption would eventually reach Europe. If the Yellowstone caldera were to go off it would almost certainly be the biggest disaster in human history, surpassing the 2012 Yankees.
