The surging Yankees offense scored seven or more runs for the fourth straight game, battering Royals pitchers for 16 hits in an 11-7 win on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium.
Aaron Hicks hit a three-run homer, his seventh, while Starlin Castro had three hits and Gary Sanchez logged his third straight multi-hit game—as the Yanks knocked out Royals starter Jason Vargas with a five-run fourth.
“The second time through, we put a bunch of good at-bats together and got to him,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “We’ve put guys on base and we’ve hit home runs. That’s a pretty good combination.”
That is, indeed, a pretty good combination.
Boy, this team sure is fun to watch.
While Gallegos sucked in the ninth, Betances probably was due to get a little work, anyways, and I liked that he won the game on making a nice play on a ground ball.
Let’s hope that Jordan Montgomery can keep the good times going on Thursday!
